And so, the Beatles Monthly Book was in print once more. Now 48 pages from cover to cover. The layout varied slightly from the original Monthly, but the letters page and centre photo remained. There were plenty of archive photos, many being seen for the first time, as well as post-1969 photos of the solo Beatles. Remarkably, for over 20 years, the magazine had no trouble filling its pages with both archive and new stories right up to the final issue 321, in January 2003.
And that is most certainly the end. Sean O’Mahoney passed away in 2020. Without him there can be no more Beatles Monthly Books. It is fairly certain, too, for reasons of copyright and data protection, that the books will never be reprinted. They remain a unique document, not just of the Beatles, but of music history.
