Klaus Voormann Got Paid HOW MUCH For Creating The Beatles’ Revolver?

Klaus Voormann’s work on The Beatles’ Revolver earned him a Grammy for Best Album Cover, but it hardly made him rich. Voormann said the Beatles’ record company paid him only about 50 pounds, roughly $140 U.S., in 1966. “I would have done it for nothing – and I didn’t feel I was in a position to make it hard for them, by saying, ‘You have to pay me this or that much,’” he said. “They said 50 pounds is the absolute limit for a record sleeve. That’s what I got.”
