Footnotes

  • Born in 1932, Sir. Peter Blake is most popularly known for co-creating the Beatles' album cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club band in 1967, which was voted for by the 'Rolling Stone' magazine as the number one album of all time from a list of 500. Blake has said of his vision for the cover that he wanted to "assemble a magical crowd around the band. I offered the idea that if they had just played a concert in the park, the cover could be a photograph of them with the group who had watched the concert. If we did this by using cardboard cut-outs, it could be whomever they [the Beatles] wanted."

    麥卡倫彼得布萊克—1926—60年,於1986年裝瓶,是僅有12瓶中的8號;750毫升;酒精度42.8%。彼得布萊克爵士生於1932年,最為人熟知的作品,是1967年共同創作的披頭四(Beatles) 專輯的封面,該專輯獲《滾石》雜誌評選為有史以來500張最佳專輯的第一名。布萊克談到該封面的構思時表示,他希望「在披頭四周圍聚集一群神奇的人物,我提出想法,如果他們剛剛在公園演出了一場音樂會,封面可能是他們和音樂會觀眾的合照。如果我們用紙板剪出肖像,他們(披頭四)想跟什麼人物一起都可拼湊出來。」
