Sir Paul McCartney has told of his delight after he was chosen to be immortalised on a mural at a library in his hometown of Liverpool, England.
Officials at Liverpool Central Library plan to dedicate areas of the facility to famous artists who hail from the British city, and the Beatles legend came top in a ballot of residents.
His name will be used in a mural covering the rear of the building, and MCCartney has written a letter to library bosses thanking them for the honour.
He writes, "I would be very happy for my name to be used on the external cladding of the redeveloped Liverpool Central Library and Archive. Thank you for doing me the honour."
