Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

"This wry and poetic fairy tale shows Ono's deeply mystic nature and creative spirit." -- Publishers Weekly

"Lovely." - Philadelphia Inquirer

More About the Author

When I count what's wrong with my life, I get totally depressed.
When I count the good things, I feel like smiling and I do.
Then I think, "well, it's not all that bad."
Life is not a bowl of cherries.
But when I see myself smiling in the mirror, I like myself more.

Life is a roller-coaster. That's what I now think.
Recently, I got a message that I was a king, and I should stop the battle, and appreciate my victory.
Well, I should listen to that one.
And you, too, my friend.
We are all kings.
The battle is the battle of goodness winning WORLD PEACE.

At all times, find something that makes you laugh.
Laughter is the best workout!
Chimpanzees are wise to it. Are you?

I love dancing. I think it's better to dance than to march through life, don't you?

Format: Hardcover
For: John Cage, conceptual art, Beatles, Yoko Ono music AND art fans alike. This is a 'storybook' found by Sean Ono Lennon that incredibly foreshadows Yoko's eventual union with John. It's a post- WW2 meditation in essence, but really, a meditation applicable to anyone dealing with loss, and finding love in the midst of that despair. The Cage-inspired artwork is gorgeous.

This is a truly, very simple, yet beautiful book - as can only be expected from Yoko!

Enormously great value - large quality hardback and binding with dust cover - simply GORGEOUS to own! I could not believe the low price of this amazing Item...

This is the story - using art, about the presence of an `invisible flower' which is told in the form of some simple impressive art from this great conceptual artist - along with simple words and isolated sentences.

I LOVE this book, because it's very convincing; one is left feeling that this invisible flower really exists among us all - and is all around us and the flower will represent many different things to many different people. It's unique and very personal, and I loved Sean's idea of getting this out in print for us all to treasure and enjoy - Thanks Sean!

There may or may not be a connection with Yoko's meeting here with John Lennon, but one thing is for certain; this book was written a whole decade before they'd met each other - yet the name `John' is there - and so is his presence - fascinating...

I loved the mushrooms and the BEAUTIFUL vibrant 'one early dawn'.

Thanks Yoko - you're always having great `feel good' influence in my life!

Hope this book is read by people who hates yoko without knowing her. One of the biggest influence in the art, music of the last part of the 20th Century.

Maybe is the fact that I respect Y.O. too much, but I'll say I expected better. I wondered how yoko was during her teenage years, and the answer is she was good, she was a proto-artist...
but the drawings in this book are basically doodles (4year old like)and has very little text.

HONESTLY...
If you are a hard core Y.O. fan you may find it fascinating.
If you are a bit into Y.O., you will think the book is OK.
If you're a casual reader... you may think it's just trash...

(EDIT: i've added pictures of it to the gallery, check them out)
