In 1996 Neil Aspinal of Apple Records asked Klaus to create the images for The Beatles Anthology series. This was a big project involving designing the covers that would adorn all three of the albums, as well as all of the other products connected with it. Once again Klaus was faced with having to come up with a design that would be fitting for this monumental Beatles project which was ultimately overseen by Paul, George, Ringo and Yoko. Klaus proposed the idea of painting The Beatles’ posters in peeling layers from early album covers and posters to later ones, thus showing the progression of the band over the years. This idea was enthusiastically embraced by Apple and The Beatles, but now Klaus had the daunting task of finishing this work within a relatively short period of time. Klaus enlisted the help of his friend and fellow artist Alfons Kiefer.
