The road less travelled

It was 45 years ago today that the Beatles released their penultimate album, Abbey Road, which included such hummable ditties as Here Comes The Sun and Octupus’s Garden. Five years prior to that, the “Fab Four” made their first appearance on American television with the Ed Sullivan Show. Letranger Absurde has decided to capture that moment in this Miniland scale vignette:

And while Abbey Road didn’t exactly produce as many smash hits as the Beatle’s earlier albums, it’s cover was certainly a memorable one, and continues to be mimicked in one form or another to this day …including Miniland form, twice! These versions by minicoop4 and Lauchlan Toal respectively both make great use of forced perspective to recreate the road and cars in the background:

    Wonderful Beatles round-up. It wonderful when contributors take the time to not just post one wonderful creation, but a slew on the same subject to show how the idea is represented across the form. Hats off to all the talented builders.

    Fun fact:
    All these MOCs were made for MOColympics, just different years. And the covers were made for the category in which this particular cover was one of four or so options.
