I was totally surprised how beautiful the INFINITE UNIVERSE AT DAWN book came out to be. It is more like a conceptual sculpture than a book. The artistic sensitivity and exactitude exercised to report the multi-dimensional history of my work is nothing but amazing. In fact I am speechless at this point!
Thank you, Genesis Publications.
Yoko Ono is signing every book in her Limited Edition of just 1,500 copies worldwide.
From the Bottom Up:
1. I like to wiggle my toes when I’m waiting for something – like in the waiting room of my dentist. It makes me less nervous.
I love you!
In memory of John Lennon, New York City has designated a beautiful triangular island in Central Park to be known as Strawberry Fields. It happens to be where John and I took our last walk together.
John would have been very proud that this was given to him, and island named after his song, rather than a statue or monument.
