The Mad Day Out Photo Session photo album On July 28th, 1968, Don McCullin spent a whole day photographing the band. There was a need for contemporary publicity images and the band and they visited a variety of locations from the Thames docks to Paul's garden.
These are all pictures you have probably seen hundreds of times. But the ones you're familiar with are sliiiiightly different.

The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, released by EMI Records in 1967, is arguably the most famous album sleeve of all time. The image on the album cover is composed of a collage of celebrities. There are 88 figures, including the band members themselves. Pop artist Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth conceived and constructed the set, including all the life-sized cut-outs of historical figures. The set was photographed, with the Beatles standing in the center.
