Sgt. Pepper artist to exhibit all-female version of famed cover


Artist Jann Haworth, who created the cover to The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper LP with her former husband Peter Blake, is displaying an all-female variation of the image in an upcoming exhibition in Britain, The Guardian reports.
“We have notable women there, like Twiggy, the judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the aviator Amelia Earhart, notorious spy Mata Hari, and Rosalind Franklin, the scientist whose crystallography enabled the discovery of DNA,” said Haworth, 77.
“Really the point of this project is that you will recognise some of the faces, but not others. The feeling of knowing and yet not knowing these women’s full stories is part of the meaning. It makes it distinct and it almost makes you shiver.” 
The exhibition of Haworth's works runs Nov. 2 through Feb. 23 at the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester.
