Grapefruit. A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono. By Yoko Ono, introduction by John Lennon. Simon & Schuster, 2000. 320pp., 5,8x5,8".
I really enjoyed the exhibition Yoko Ono, Grapefruit at Moderna museet, which took its starting point from Ono's book 'Grapefruit' (originally published in 1964).
I thought it was a pretty great body of work on display, some though-provocative, some known, some singularly important, some magical. Overall, just seeing something unequivocally positive was pretty wonderful.
This is a reissue of the original book, with new work added.
"Back in print for the first time in nearly thirty years, here is Yoko Ono's whimsical, delightful, subversive, startling book of instructions for art and for life.
'Burn this book after you've read it'. -- Yoko
'A dream you dream alone may be a dream, but a dream two people dream together is a reality. This is the greatest book I've ever burned'. -- John
