Description

    Beatles - John Lennon and Yoko Ono Signed Grapefruit Book (London: Sphere Books, 1971). A 5" x 5" softbound edition, pages unnumbered, with color cover, neatly signed on the free front endpaper: "Yoko Ono" in black ink and "John Lennon" in blue ink. The signatures were likely placed during John & Yoko's appearance promoting the book at Selfridge's department store in London on July 15, 1971, seen in the accompanying photograph. Originally published in 1964 in Tokyo, Grapefruit helped establish Ono as a major avant-garde artist. This later edition consists of more than 200 "instruction works" divided into seven sections: Music, Painting, Event, Poetry, Object, Film, and Dance. The introduction is by John Lennon: "Hi! My name is John Lennon. I'd like you to meet Yoko Ono." The cover is an image of a bare bottom reminiscent of Yoko's film Bottoms. A nice copy with only very minor wear, Fine. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
