Fifty Years Adrift by Derek Taylor

Nicknamed The Big Leather Job" or "The Fat Book", Derek Taylor's vibrant autobiography, packed with celebrated reproductions of memorabilia from his early days as a journalist, to his position as Beatles press officer. Written by Derek Taylor and edited and annotated by George Harrison, it is a lasting testament to the genius, wit and insight of two great men. The text was ultimately edited from the 400,000 words to approximately 250,000 words, while the beautiful engraving-type illustrations throughout were mainly created by Roy Williams. The Afterword was written by the late, great Harry Nilsson. The inside fly pages are hand signed by both Derek Taylor and George Harrison. This edition came complete with a handsome slipcase. 

2,000 copies were made in brown half-leather and each one was autographed by George Harrison, Derek Taylor and by ex-Bonzo Dog member Larry Smith, who created the end papers.
