I’m back with a new Fabulous Find and this week I’ve selected something a little newer and more recent. So without further ado, I give you a hardbound book … Where’s Ringo?, written by Andrew Grant Jackson. It was published in 2014 by Thunder Bay Press, which is located in San Diego, California.
Being a big Beatles fan, I was very pleased to stumble upon this book a few years ago at my local book retailer. That’s one nice thing about a brick and mortar store, you can browse the shelves and find little gems like this book.
Take a look at the cover:
Andrew Grant Jackson has written for Yahoo!, music magazines Burn Lounge, Mean Street, and Dispatch, the Hollywood monthly magazine Ingenue, and Baseline’s Studio System, the leading online database and research service for the film and television industries.
As the internet suggests, “go ‘Starr-gazing’, in Hamburg, Liverpool, and even New York City with this fun and entertaining visual puzzle book that’s every bit as quirky as Ringo Starr himself.”
The book is as fun, eccentric and as easily recognizable as Ringo Starr himself. Join Ringo, as well as, the other three Beatles; John, Paul & George, as they hide in plain sight. There are twenty different, Beatle-themed illustrations by artists; Oliver Goddard, Takayo Akiyama and David Ryan Robinson which show the Beatles and their friends and rivals in iconic scenes from throughout their musical history.
And yes, Where’s Waldo came first, but I’d much rather look for Ringo and the other Beatles, than Waldo, but that’s just me! Within these ninety-six (96) pages, you will find twenty (20) searchable scenes, such as; Liverpool, A Hard Day’s Night, Yellow Submarine, Apple Records, the rooftop concert and Abbey Road, among plenty of others.
Here is an example of the Yellow Submarine puzzle:
The book is a lot of fun for all ages, from young child to retired music lovers. Anyone and everyone will love the hours of fun this book will provide. I wouldn’t suggest doing all twenty puzzles in one setting, as you just might give yourself eyestrain. So spread your enjoyment out and spend a few days taking your time going through all the puzzles.
Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Fabulous Find. Please return next week for another RETRO REVIEW. Til then, be seeing you …
