    Description

    John Lennon and Yoko Ono Signed "Grapefruit" Book (Simon and Schuster, 1972). A "book of instructions + drawings by Yoko Ono," the book "Grapefruit" is a good example of the conceptual art that first made her famous. The book, first produced in 1964, includes surreal, Zen-like instructions that are to be completed in the mind of the reader, for example: "Hide and Go Seek Piece: Hide until everyone forgets about you. Hide until everyone dies." "Grapefruit" has been published several times, most widely distributed in this Simon and Schuster edition from 1971. This particular copy is signed by both Ono (in Japanese) and John Lennon on the first inside page. In Excellent condition with hinge creases to the front and back covers, some edge wear, and a few creases along the spine. With COA from PSA/DNA.
