‘I’m one of those people you might think of as a jack-of-all-trades. I don’t limit myself to one medium. Sometimes inspiration comes in as music; sometimes it comes in as visual.’ – Yoko Ono
Iconic, rare and previously unseen pieces and photographs from the artist’s own archives are showcased in over 300 silver-edged pages.
“I would say all my works are a form of prayer or a wish. People write down their wishes, and then they tie the knot on the tree. We have to supply more trees because the first one becomes so heavy with paper. It’s an incredible amount of wishing.” – Yoko Ono
“I thought this artwork, if it’s really good artwork, has to have everything in it to change the world.” – Yoko Ono
