The “For Sale” album by the Beatles is probably the least known cover – mainly because of the somber, downtrodden looks on their faces and the very tiny print in the upper left of the album. They did this purposely to reflect the mostly downbeat mood of the songs on the album. The most known songs from this album are “Eight Days a Week” and “What You’re Doing”
I really want to eventually do a scrollcutting of every Beatles album cover, so I took this one on a few weeks ago and decided to just focus on the faces. I put the lettering off to the side as a last minute addition.
The wood is Honey Locust and since I did the lumbering six or seven months ago, I was able to keep two live edges on this one.
The piece measures 11×5 inches and is around 3/16” thick.
As usual, a soak in lemon oil for the finish and backed with thick felt.
I think I might tackle “The White Album” next – I don’t know if I have enough talent or patience for something that hard though…............
