By day, John Pring and Rob Thomas are graphic designers creating esteemed infographics for organisations as diverse as Google, the Guardian, The Hard Rock Cafe and Saatchi & Saatchi. By night, this pair of self-confessed Beatles geeks took it upon themselves to discover what the Beatles' music and story would look like if you visualised it. The series of infographics they created received an overwhelming response. Their Kickstarter campaign gathered hundreds of supporters and was featured in media across the world. They've now created graphics for every album the Beatles ever made and turned them into the beautiful book you're reading about.
