In 1985 artist Keith West was introduced to George Harrison and so began a close collaboration to produce a stunning set of watercolors illustrating the composer's many memorable songs. The method of production entailed the completion of detailed pencil studies after careful discussion on all the lyrics. Keith, one of the finest botanical watercolor artists in the world, soon found himself traveling regularly from his cottage in North Wales to Oxfordshire to discuss with George the interpretations of his song lyrics in order to prepare the illustrations for this volume. To complement these delightful images the artist has hand-lettered the words to the songs. The lyrics are embellished with additional small paintings that possess an irresistible charm.
