New limited edition book about the The Beatles on sale

Of all the Beatles-related items released to the public, only two have failed to live up to expectations. The slightly strange Yellow Submarine iPad app released a few months back, and of course The Beatles: Rock Band for the XBox, which bombed. But these are anomalies in a market of nostalgia for the foursome that hasn't remotely waned with time - 40 years on the humble zebra crossing still means 'Abbey Road'. We think the latest release deserves the hype.

Photographer Harry Benson followed the group around for years, and in a new book showcases the award-winning artist's time with the Beatles, most famously on their first American tour in 1964. Thousands of photos make up the limited edition 272 page paperback, many of which have never been released. The book will set you back a whopping £450, perhaps one only for the most committed Beatlemaniac. (Available at a discount from Amazon.)

Sexy video celebrates Marc Jacobs & Playboy birthday

In an homage to the joint birthday of two serious lady-loving icons, Toronto based film-maker Claire Edmondson has made a special "birthday card" video for Marc Jacobs and Hugh Hefner.

The designer and the Hef both spend their days surrounded by nearly-naked women, albeit for different reasons. As Louis Vuitton's creative director, Jacobs embraces the female form in a purely artistic sense – and enjoys selling the brand with imagery provocative enough to get banned. While the Hef is… well, the Hef.

'Me, Marc & Hugh'  walks the same sultry line as American Apparel et al - brands who've long since discovered quasi-innocent frolicking underpins the most successful campaigns - and this film could easily pass as one of Marc Jacobs' own.

Essentially, it's semi-naked ladies rolling around clutching Louis Vuitton in a pastel-tinted school boy wet dream.

Clearly, school boys are used to more hardcore footage than this. And although filmed as a tongue-in-cheek birthday cheer to Jacobs and Hefner, the lack of men in the video mirrors Claire's feelings on the nature of porn in the current day.

“There is a gross inequality within the porn industry and because of that inequality; it is understandable that it's seen as degrading to women,” she told Vice.

Echoing Caitlin Moran's thoughts that porn should be more women-focussed (if you haven't read the chapter on porn from Moran’s How to Be a Woman, do it immediately), Claire says: "I think more women should be making porn or erotica for women. “

“The porn industry isn't going to go away, so I think the next logical step is to have more women making from a female perspective.

“Maybe if more women were producing it, it would create a creative equality, which would help in the degradation of women. That's clearly not going to solve all of the problems within pornography, but it feels like a positive step."

Rather than porn, Claire calls her film "dream humour". What do we think?
