Baby’s in black.

 

Oh dear, what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?

She thinks of him and so she dresses in black,
And though he’ll never come back, she’s dressed in black.

I think of her, but she thinks only of him,
And though it’s only a whim, she thinks of him.

Oh how long will it take,
Till she sees the mi stake she has made?

Dear what can I do?
Baby’s in black and I’m feeling blue,
Tell me, oh what can I do?

 


One of my favourite presents this year for christmas was this graphic novel by Arne Bellstorf: “Baby’s in black”. I read it in one go and was totally amazed: The story of Astrid Kirchherr and former Beatles bass player Stuart Sutcliffe ist told beautifully and Bellstorf graphic style is just great. It fits perfect in this wild years of Hamburg’s Reeperbahn early glorys and plays beautifully with the colour, that it is all about – and, it also interprets Astrid Kirchherrs beautiful photographs (which I always was especially in love with) in a fresh and very becoming way.
