...but, hey, we love The Yellow Submarine, so we felt a need to do this shout-out. Heinz Edelmann, the art director for the incredibly distinctive 1968 Beatles film The Yellow Submarine, died last week in Germany. He also apparently designed the cover for the German edition of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings (See? Literary connection!), as well as several other books. Mr. Edelmann was 75.
