Yellow Submarine pre-production cels

The only known group pre-production cels known to exist from Yellow Submarine. These cels were hand-made under the supervision of art director Heinz Edelmann in mid-1967 to show the Beatles what they would look like in animated form based upon their (then) brand new Sgt. Pepper image. One can see the clear similarities between the Penny Lane publicity photo and these cels. Although very similar, these images were modified into the characters we know and love from the movie Yellow Submarine. This set is not only one of a kind, but an important historical piece in the development of the movie.
