An Invisible Flower
By

Rating
This elegant little art book is a never-before-published treasure written and illustrated by Yoko Ono in 1952, when she was 19 years old, at the advent of her artistic career. Featuring hand-drawn text and minimalist drawings in chalk pastel, this sweet story tells of an invisible beauty that we all know, but cannot see. But there is one person who can see it: 'Smelty John.' Written years before Yoko met her famous soul mate, Invisible Flower offers a glimpse into the early process of a brilliant conceptual artist and eerily heralds her relationship with one of pop music's most beloved talents. Sean Lennon discovered this little jewel in his mothers' archives and will contribute an introduction, and Yoko Ono will contextualise her work in a new afterword.

Reviews

"This wry, and poetic fairy tale shows Ono's deeply mystic nature and creative spirit." -- Publishers Weekly "This wry and poetic fairy tale shows Ono's deeply mystic nature and creative spirit." -- Publishers Weekly "Exquisite in its delicate poetics, An Invisible Flower is the kind of book you revisit again and again, the one you sit with on a bad day to remind you that life, even at its most difficult, is a scavenger hunt for beauty." -- Brain Pickings "Lovely." - Philadelphia Inquirer
