The John Lennon Box Of Vision / Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to create John Lennon time capsules

The John Lennon Box Of Vision

This is the exact same JOHN LENNON Box of Vision that will be stored inside the JOHN LENNON TIME CAPSULE.
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of John Lennon’s birth, it will only be manufactured and available for a limited time. (Each copy will be uniquely numbered.)

The unique “artist’s canvas” oversized Box (measuring over 15 inches by 13 inches, and 4 inches deep) is wrapped in a stunning, silver-inked portrait of John Lennon.

It has a precise reproduction of John’s original line drawing  “Baby Grand”  on the back.

Inside the Box are three brand new, officially authorized books, and 4 exclusive, art -adorned recordable discs:


The Books

1) The LP artwork book:

166 pages of newly restored LP art, in original LP size, including the complete artwork for John and Yoko’s WEDDING ALBUM, formatted for the first time in book form, to be enjoyed as an actual wedding album (its stunning!); the complete calendar artwork for LIVE PEACE IN TORONTO 1969; all of John’s studio albums from PLASTIC ONO BAND through MILK AND HONEY plus all officially released worldwide compilations and live albums originally issued in the LP format. (oh yes—and those photos—offered both behind a “paper bag” image reproduction, or at your discretion, in full glory when you “open up” the page.)

2) The Catalography:

A brand new, full color discography of John’s, and John and Yoko’s, album catalog, with an exclusive essay and textual guide by Bruce Spizer; newly restored reproductions of classic Lennon album advertisements; John’s handwritten sound notes to DOUBLE FANTASY and MILK AND HONEY; and more.

3) The CD Storage Book:

The patented Box of Vision CD storage system, built to store all of John Lennon’s official CD releases, it can hold up to 32 different CD albums, in an expandable and adaptable format to accommodate any fan’s collection. (CDs not included)

The Exclusive Recordable Discs

One (1) art-adorned recordable DVD, and three different art-adorned recordable CDs, intended for you to record and store audiovisual and audio content you choose. We have received permission from the Lennon estate to create these unique CDs using classic John and John and Yoko art elements as well as from John’s drawings.  Create your own “time capsule” content to store in your Box of Vision, or transfer and store your John Lennon, or John and Yoko, MP3s and videos.

The John Lennon Time Capsule Project

In honor of John Lennon’s 70th birthday on Saturday October 9, 2010, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and BoxofVision LLC will create three authorized time capsules of John Lennon’s post-Beatles recordings and fan contributions submitted via www.BoxOfVision.com/TimeCapsule (site will be live on Thursday, July 29), to carry his legacy of peace and love to future generations.

With the cooperation of Yoko Ono Lennon, the time capsules will be preserved and stored until they are opened in a ceremonial presentation on October 9, 2040. They will be stored at the Rock Hall and two additional world locations that have significance to John Lennon’s legacy.

The Rock Hall will host a time capsule dedication ceremony at the Museum on Friday, October 8 at 10:30 a.m. The Museum will continue to celebrate Lennon’s legacy with a weekend of special programs built around John Lennon’s personal items in the Museum’s exhibits including in-depth curator discussions, screenings of Lennon-related Induction content and films and other special events.

“I am delighted to support this effort to help share John’s music and messages of peace and love with the children of today and tomorrow. I know that John’s work, life and dreams will help inspire them to bring a better world for everyone. Children Power!” says Mrs. Ono Lennon.

The general public is invited to submit birthday wishes, commentary, musical performances and personal thoughts on John Lennon’s legacy at www.BoxOfVision.com/TimeCapsule. Fans can share thoughts beginning today through September 15, 2010. Fans who visit the website can also make recommendations about what the time capsules should include to best preserve the Lennon legacy over the next 30 years.

Along with fan contributions the capsules will include John Lennon’s post-Beatles recordings, newly restored art prints of his LP artwork, a newly commissioned essay on his career and other related items.

THE JOHN LENNON TIME CAPSULE PROJECT is being overseen by Jonathan Polk, of BoxofVision LLC, who last year created THE BEATLES Box of Vision.

“John Lennon’s body of work IS our time capsule,” says Polk. “It embodies the ideals that once fueled our absolute belief we could change the world…then led to cynical backlash… but now represent how we wish to be remembered.

“The John Lennon Time Capsule is a gift to our children and grandchildren. It is an effort to pass on those messages of peace and love and personal responsibility; to help ensure that John’s beautiful body of work, what he stood for and how he inspired us, will shine on.”

“John Lennon was one of the most influential figures in rock and roll history, not only in terms of his body of work, but also because of how he used his art and visibility to help make a difference in the world,” said Jim Henke, Chief Curator at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Boxofvision LLC creates and distributes elegant products for fans to store and display the bodies of work of great recording artists, such as last year’s officially licensed THE BEATLES Box of Vision.
