From the Publisher:
Yoko Ono created An Invisible Flower when she was just nineteen years old, at the very start of her artistic career. Recently rediscovered in her archive by her son, Sean Lennon, who also provides a foreword, this jewel of a book tells the heartwarming story of the invisible beauty we all know is there-and of the one man, "Smelty John," who catches sight of it. Written years before Ono met John Lennon, An Invisible Flower offers a glimpse into the early process of a brilliant conceptual artist and, it will transpire, presages the love of her life. Simple pastel drawings complement the book's affirming message, and a new afterword by Ono makes this small treasure even more special.
Yoko Ono is primarily known as the wife and muse of John Lennon. Unlike Lennon, she has never been a very popular figure; many hold her responsible for the breakup of the Beatles. But Ono, whose name means Ocean Child, is an artist in her own right. She was a leader in the Fluxus art movement, and has been a prolific maker of music for decades. A number of rock bands have acknowledged their debt to Ono's idiosyncratic singing style. She has lived at the Dakota apartment in New York City, the site of her husband's murder, since the 1970s, and has conscientiously overseen the release of a great deal of his music in the decades since Lennon's death.
