Ringo publishes picture book

Former Beatle Ringo Starr is to publish a book of his own photos, including previously unseen images of the Fab Four.

The drummer also tells his own stories about the pictures, which include images of his early years, his travels and his candid shots of the group.

Ringo's book - called Photograph, which is also the name of one of his top 10 solo hits 40 years ago - will be released as an ebook, with hand-bound copies published later in the year.

Readers will be able to zoom in on photos and hear audio clips as he narrates the tales behind the images. They include reminiscences of his early years in Liverpool and his spell in hospital, during which he was given his first drum, together with memories of his first car, girlfriends and bands.

Ringo has filmed videos for the digital version of the book with interviews, music and animation.

He said of the photos gathered together: "These are shots that no one else could have."

The 72-year-old musician previously issued a collection of postcards dating back to his Beatles days called Postcards From The Boys, released by Genesis Publications, which has also developed the new book.

The ebook is to be sold on the iTunes bookstore and released on June 12, with a limited edition print version of 2,500 copies out in December.
