Paul is dead

Revolver - 1966

This is the first cover with an open palm above Paul's head. An open palm signified that the person below was departed from this world. The album cover was drawn because the absence of Paul made taking pictures of him difficult. It is interesting that "Revolver" could refer to a revolving door through which Paul leaves and William Campbell enters.
Ever wonder why Paul's head is sideways while the others face forward?
