Yoko Ono | Infinite Universe At Dawn

Yoko Ono's Infinite Universe At Dawn is currently being bound in Italy, and will begin shipping next month. The book is billed as "her first curated selection of her seminal art and activism across eight decades", which both ignores previous monographs such as Yes Yoko Ono and suggests the book will include activism works from Ono's childhood, but the 340 page leather-bound book certainly seems extravagant. Housed in a leather and buckram slipcase, the title features tipped in postcards, trace pages, a piece of the sky puzzle piece and a mirrored 'Smile' card. The cover features a die-cut 'Hole To See The Sky'.

I'm also unclear how many different editions exist, as the site refers to a limited edition (they're all limited, to 1500 copies), an 'intricate edition' and a 'collector edition' (only 1,150 books numbered 351 to 1,500). I'm not sure if these are all different, as the ordering page doesn't specify, and the only price listed is £325.00 ($524 US, $591 CDN).

The title can be pre-ordered now, at

"It is more like a conceptual sculpture than a book."
