Stuart Sutcliffe/The Lost and 5th Beatle's Artbook
The above book is something I am very excited about, and I don't see it at other stores, except for us of course!
"Stuart Sutcliffe: A Retrospective" is a catalogue out of the Victoria Gallery & Museum in Liverpool, England.

He was a close friend of John Lennon's and actually was the first bass player for the Beatles.
Sutcliffe had that beautiful James Dean mystique. Incredibly handsome and moody, he was a really good painter. He died super young and serves as a shadow in Beatles lore and history. Down below are some images of Sutcliffe and his work:
