Experience the fascinating life of musical legend Paul McCartney with nearly 100 rare photographs, captured by the iconic photojournalist Harry Benson. From Beatlemania's feverish fevers to the triumphs of Wings in the 70s and a contemplative rural life in the early 90s, explore the highs and lows of McCartney's pop genius in the trade edition, following the sold-out Collector's Edition released last year.

Legendary photographer Harry Benson captured the story of Paul McCartney's life from when the Beatles exploded onto the American music scene in 1964, to the break-up of the band, and on through McCartney's subsequent career, with exclusive access to both him and his wife Linda. Spanning more than one hundred images in both color and black and white, Paul provides an unprecedented look at one of the world's most famous music artists, who remains largely mysterious despite his long tenure in the spotlight. Through Benson's lens, we're able to witness McCartney's development, from musician to icon, to husband and father. We not only see the star at the peak of Beatlemania, but also in the studio with Linda and their band Wings, with the family, and on his 1975–76 “Wings Over America” tour. We also get a glimpse of the couple's rural country home in the early 1990s. Celebrating Sir Paul's 80th birthday, this collection offers a unique, all.
