Post-digital publishing

On August 8, 1969, photographer Iain Macmillan captured The Beatles walking across the zebra crossing outside of Abbey Road Studios. This image has now become one of music’s most iconic album covers. Forty-seven years on, Abbey Road has also become a major tourist attraction and a virally-transmitted meme. Its transmission has been associated with music homages, sports, politics, parodies, social media selfies and more. In response, this book catalogues many of these memes and considers the relationship between digital artefacts and publishing.
