The 'Songs' are illustrated by talented New Zealand botanical artist Keith West, who impressed Harrison with his wealth of fantastical imagery.

"Harrison, the youngest Beatle--who played lead guitar and wrote memorable songs such as 'Something,' 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and 'Here Comes the Sun'--was considered by many to be the group's most thoughtful, spiritual member. His signature guitar style, owing both to blues and early rock and roll, gave the Beatles' music a distinctive character".
