Richard Hamilton explored the relationships and distinctions between fine art, product design and popular culture. In 1968 he was invited by Paul McCartney to design the sleeve and poster collage pull-out for the Beatles' ninth album, more commonly known as the 'White Album' due to Hamilton's plain white sleeve design. The resulting poster, originally included with the album, is a printed collage of photographs of John, Paul, George and Ringo, with an initial print run exceeding five million. Hamilton not only uses popular culture as source for the work but he also directly participates with the machinery of production.
