Heinz Edelmann – Der Phantastische Film
Heinz Edelmann is most famous as the designer for Yellow Submarine. One would expect to find bountiful galleries of his work online, but in fact it isn’t so. Images of Edelmann’s non-Submarine art are really very difficult to come by. One image, a cover for the German edition of Lord of the Rings (above) appears frequently. Other examples of his psychedelic art have to be diligently teased out. What’s more, after Yellow Submarine, Edelmann drastically changed his style to avoid being pigeonholed as a psychedelic artist. Tragic, as his psychedelic artwork was brilliant. Miraculously, however, a recent google search turned up this video gem. Enjoy!
