The Beatles' infamous butcher cover inspires a wine collectible

Beatles artist Shannon has taken the Beatles butcher cover and given it some vintage through the design of a new set of wine bottles. She says that when Liverpool's Hard Day's Night Hotel was created, over 100 rooms were designed to fit a line-up of historical Beatles facts. She was given the task of creating original paintings to fit each room.

One such room was "The Butcher Room". Shannon created her own version of the controversial 1966 album cover there, which is now featured on a pair of bottles of red and white wine that can be purchased as a set. Only 50 sets are available. Cost for most of the sets is $59.99 for the set, plus shipping and handling. The bottles numbered #1 and #9 are $199.99 a set and are specially packaged with a “Signed by Shannon” print of the set on each bottle. Bottles numbered #2 through #10 are $99.99 a set and similarly packaged with a “Signed by Shannon” print of the set on each bottle. More information and to order: 310-739-4930.
