The Grammy Award-winning album packaging was created by art
director Robert Fraser, mostly in collaboration with
McCartney, designed by Peter Blake, his wife Jann Haworth,
and photographed by Michael Cooper. It featured a colourful
collage of life-sized cardboard models of famous people on
the front of the album cover and lyrics printed on the back
cover, the first time this had been done on an English pop
LP. The suits were designed by Manuel Cuevas. Among the
insignia on their uniforms are:

Ontario Provincial Police flash on McCartney’s sleeve
Art director Robert Fraser was a prominent London art dealer
who ran his own gallery and sponsored exhibitions at the
Indica Gallery, through which he had become a close friend
of McCartney, and it was at his strong urging that the group
abandoned their original cover design, a psychedelic
painting by The Fool. The Fool’s design for the inner sleeve
was, however, used for the first few pressings.

According to Blake, the original concept was to create a
scene that showed the Sgt. Pepper band performing in a park;
this gradually evolved into its final form, which shows the
Beatles, as the Sgt. Pepper band, surrounded by a large
group of their heroes, rendered as lifesized cut-out

The collage depicted more than 70 famous people, including
writers, musicians, film stars and (at Harrison’s request) a
number of Indian gurus. The final grouping included Marlene
Dietrich, Carl Gustav Jung, W.C. Fields, Diana Dors, Bob
Dylan, Marilyn Monroe, Aldous Huxley, Karlheinz Stockhausen,
Sigmund Freud, Aleister Crowley, Edgar Allan Poe, Karl Marx,
Oscar Wilde, William S. Burroughs, Marlon Brando, Stan
Laurel and Oliver Hardy, and controversial comedian Lenny
Bruce. Also included was the image of the original Beatles
bass player, the late Stuart Sutcliffe. Pete Best said in a
later NPR interview that Lennon borrowed family medals from
his mother Mona for the shoot, on condition he not lose
them. Adolf Hitler and Jesus Christ were requested by
Lennon, but ultimately they were left out.
