Throughout the course of his career, John Lennon's work as an artist expressed common societal themes from every epoch he witnessed. Until now, little of this work has been seen in one place. For the first time, John Lennon: The Collected Artwork offers a visually captivating history of Lennon's art, including more than 200 images and featuring 25 never-before-published pieces from the archives of Yoko Ono. Often surreal and extremely vibrant, Lennon's drawings were widely considered some of the finest interpretive art of the era. His 1969 Bag One series, frequently censored due to its overt eroticism, is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and his peace-themed sketches have been used in antiwar movements since the 1970s. Selections from these and many other series are featured in this matchless collection, a beautiful showpiece and a timeless record of Lennon's emotional, political, and imaginative spirit.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A new book compiles touching, unornamented artwork from the icon's life outside of music. Its sketches are minimalist, emotional, funny and charming." * Rolling Stone *
"A beautiful illustration of an amazing life." * Sunday Mirror *
"A must-own for music and art fans alike." * Red *
"There is a rude and revealing energy to his art. As Yoko Ono writes in her introduction, John 'always brought fresh air' to any medium he was working on." * The Telegraph *
