How Does it Feel to be One of the Beautiful

­Dark Hall Mansion announces its new officially licensed Limited Edition Beatles release: “May I Introduce to You” a screen print by the artist SHAG.

SHAG has captured The Beatles in his unique and distinctively singular style, bringing to life no less than the legendary moment when “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band” explodes across 1968’s kaleidoscopic masterpiece, “Yellow Submarine.” Beautifully hued, his print measures a full 20″ x 28″ capturing the Blue Meanie’s worst nightmare-pure unadulterated joy through music!

Makes me feel young(er) again.
