The critically-acclaimed, glossy coffee table book ‘Abbey Road: The Best Studio in the World’ is the first ever official photographic collection of the studios. It comes complete with a foreword from Sir George Martin, is packed full of rare and unseen, stunning vintage images and can be sampled here.
A range of Abbey Road Studios gifts including accessories, luggage and stationery has been exclusively created by award-winning British designers Wild and Wolf, who have won ‘Gift of the Year’ over five consecutive years for their creations for the Victoria and Albert Museum, Ladybird and Penguin books, Mr Men/Little Miss, Scrabble and Marmite.
The inspiration for all of the products comes from within the walls of Abbey Road Studios: from the skills and talent of the artists and engineers who record, mix and master, from the vintage and cutting-edge equipment including many pieces of kit invented, modified or just made better at Abbey Road Studios and from the studios’ unparalleled legacy at the heart of British music recording history. Giving music fans the chance to get a feel for the historical and inspiring spirit of the studios, the Wild And Wolf gifts feature stunning photographs of recording equipment that has been used to capture many timeless pieces of music.
The Abbey Road Studios Music Trivia Game is a mix of music trivia, missing song lyrics and guessing the song or artist. The board features wonderful photographs from the legendary studios, with special limited edition graphics and game pieces. Players start the game on the iconic Abbey Road zebra crossing. They take it in turns to roll the die and enter the studios. Upon entering the studios, players make their way through Studios One, Two, Three and chill-out rooms, answering questions and collecting pieces of an 80th anniversary album as they go. The game finishes when the first person completes their album and makes it back to the zebra crossing.
