The John Lennon-Paul McCarthy partnership, in one chart

Graphic designers John Pring and Rob Thomas are using Kickstarter to fund a new book, Visualising the Beatles, which collects infographics the duo made about each of the band’s major albums. They’re starting with chapter one, on the Beatles’s UK debut, Please Please Me. The authorship of that album’s songs (apart from covers like “Twist and Shout”) is depicted in the above graphic. Lennon wrote all of “Please Please Me,” “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” and “There’s a Place,” and McCartney wrote most of “I Saw Her Standing There” but the rest were true collaborations. That would change with later albums, of course, as the duo did more and more of their work apart.
