The Beatles Anthology is a book published in October 2000 as part of The Beatles Anthology film project. It includes interviews with all four band members, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, and others involved, most notably George Martin, plus over 1,200 rare photos and colorful illustrations. Many of the interviews quoted are from those featured in the documentary films, and additional interviews were conducted specifically for the book (excluding John Lennon's passages, which were accumulated from various archives and sources). The book went straight to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list.[1] In 2002, the book was released as a large-format paperback.
