Yoko Ono Lands Book Deal with OR Books

Artist Yoko Ono inked a deal with OR Books for an “instructional poetry” book entitled Acorn. The publisher plans to release this title in June 2013.

OR Books described the Acorn manuscript as “an extension” of Ono’s 1964 art book, Grapefruit. Ono has collaborated with other writers on books, but this is her first book published by herself in nearly 50 years.

Over at The Guardian, Ono explained the book: “It’s something I originally created for the internet. For 100 days, every day, a different instruction was communicated. Now it’s being published in book form. I’m riding a time machine that’s going back to the old ways! Great! I added my dot drawings to give you further brainwork.”
