From Winehouse to Westwood: Sgt Pepper mk II
It is one of the most distinctive album covers in British pop music history, featuring some of the most iconic faces of its day.
But 45 years on from the release of The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the sleeve's artist has given it a revamp to include the British cultural icons of his life to celebrate his 80th birthday.
Using computer editing rather than the cardboard cutouts of the original, Sir Peter Blake has pulled together icons from across the cultural spectrum, featuring pioneering artists, designers, directors, musicians, writers, film stars, fashion designers and chefs, as well as including himself and his own family.
Watch the video above to hear Sir Peter talking about his creation, that he will officially unveil at his 80th birthday celebrations, being held at Wayne Hemingway MBE's Vintage Festival on 13-15 July.
Among those that can be seen on the Sgt Pepper's 2012 image are:
