A is for Apcor Books and Records

Apcor Books is a small publishing company formed by three Beatles/Apple Records fanatics who have combined their knowledge, resources and collections to issue a series of books on the Beatles' Apple company. The first part of this series, a is for apple Vol. 1 was issued in 2015 to great acclaim by the fans as well as the specialized Beatles fanzines. While subsequent volumes are in the making, the company intends to issue more related product in the meantime, such as records and also publications by other writers, all in some way connected to The Beatles and/or Apple. Among other projects in the works, a book on Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best is underway and the company's latest ventures were Beatles' roadie Kevin Harrington's book on his life with the Beatles and a charity record by Klaus Voormann and Wishful Thinking which yielded more than 8,000 Euro of donations for Syrian war refugees. Apcor Books is looking for manuscripts by people who have worked for or have been involved in The Beatles and/or their Apple company, or have written books on the subject, for publication. The scope of Apcor is not strictly limited to The Beatles, we would also consider books on related subjects such as the individual Apple artists (Mary Hopkin, Badfinger, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, etc.) or the individual Beatles (John, Paul, George, Ringo), ex-members, ex-employees for the Beatles or Apple, Apple Scruffs, etc.
