A curious video tribute to the official Beatles Fan Club publication

This just turned up on YouTube - a video tribute to the Beatles Book , which was the official monthly magazine of the Beatles Fan Club from 1963 to 1969.

A later incarnation of the digest-size mag ran from 1976 through 2003 and included archive articles along with new articles about the Beatles and their group and solo careers.

I have the original run on PDFs, but it would be fun to see it in print. Despite the glossed over image the mag portrayed of the group, there was real news and insight in its pages, too. Not to mention fantastic, exclusive photos.

This video provides a feel for what it was like.
