Gorgeous Infographics Show What Made The Beatles Great

It was fifty years ago today (well, next month) that The Beatles took America by storm. And a graphic design duo is marking the anniversary with a Kickstarter collection of gorgeous infographics delving into every detail of The Beatles' first album, Please Please Me.

John Pring and Rob Thomas, directors of Designbysoap Ltd., are raising funds for their upcoming infographic book Visualizing The Beatles, with a chapter of data for each of the band's 13 major album releases. Backers of the crowdfunding effort, which is already past the initial funding hurdle and into stretch goals, will receive beautiful printed copies of the first chapter, Please Please Me. It's a fun, well laid out look at the data behind some of the catchiest and most influential songs ever written. [Kickstarter via Co.Design]
