The Beatles Yellow Submarine Elite '68 Folio Screen Print Set by Tom Whalen

The Beatles Yellow Submarine Elite '68 Folio Screen Print Set by Tom Whalen

In honor of Dark Hall Mansion’s highly anticipated The Beatles Yellow Submarine print set by Tom Whalen dropping later today, DHM has unveiled the third colorway of this beautiful five screen print set. The ultra rare “Elite ‘68” Folio features metallic inks and comes signed and numbered by Whalen (the only version to come signed). Limited to just 68 sets, this is by far the rarest of the three colorways and also its most expensive. The Elite Folio set will retail for a whopping $625! This version is definitely for all of the diehard Beatles collectors out there.

Based on Yellow Submarine, the 1968 animated Beatles film, this officially licensed limited edition print Folio includes five 18”x24” Tom Whalen screen prints. Each print comes individually numbered, with the set housed within its own Folio protective case, also designed by Whalen, which bears the film’s classic Yellow Submarine and original 1968 film release date on its cover. This is the first time The Beatles have formally allowed a contemporary artist to reinterpret their classic film’s imagery within an art print format.

Three different versions of Tom Whalen’s Yellow Submarine Folio have been produced: a Standard Edition Folio ($300) with a limited edition run size of 797 sets; a Pink Variant ($450) with a limited edition run size of 135 sets; and the “Elite ’68” Metallic Edition Signed Folio ($625) that has a limited edition run size of 68 sets and includes signed versions of each print.

These officially licensed The Beatles Yellow Submarine Folios will go on sale exclusively through Dark Hall Mansion’s online store today, Tuesday, May 29th, at 9:30am PST. This release has been scheduled to coincide with the release of Yellow Submarine on Bluray.
