The Beat Goes On: Liverpool, Popular Music and the Changing City

It’s all go on the publications front at NML with new titles arriving and due shortly.

You may already know that we recently launched a book to accompany the Hitched exhibition at Sudley House. Also called Hitched it features 13 beautiful wedding outfits in full colour, together with close-up details and many original wedding photographs. It’s a snip at £4.95 and is available through our venue shops and our online bookshop.

If you enjoyed The Beat Goes On exhibition at World Museum last year then the new book of the same name is for you. It is a critical historical account of popular music in Liverpool, looking at why the city is so important musically and how has it sustained its importance, from the Beatles to the Zutons and beyond. It’s also available to buy online and through our venues.

Very soon we’ll be launching Transatlantic Slavery: An Introduction and that old favourite, the John Moores catalogue to accompany this year’s exhibition – more on both on the online shop.

Win a book: If you fancy getting your hands on any of these just answer this simple question – how many art books are featured in the NML online shop? (clue: some are available in more than one package so count carefully.) Send us your answer with your name, address and the name of the book you would prefer using this contact form. The deadline for entries is noon on Friday 10 September at 2010.

Update 01.09.10: Apologies to people who tried to enter yesterday and couldn’t. Please use the entry form instead.
