Each edition will have the official John Lennon signature embossed in the paper and stamped with his official Japanese Hanko or ‘Chop’ which translates to “Like a cloud, beautiful sound.”

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is the first new release from the Art of John Lennon in fifteen years.

Lennon first envisioned and drew Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds in 1964 inspired by his son’s Julian’s own childhood drawing. He  featured it in the centerfold of his book In His Own Write. The song was later released in 1967.

Lennon’s artwork predated his success with the Beatles and remained a passion throughout his years as a music legend. While music will be remembered as his most popular art form, art on paper was his first love. He loved both his literature and his art, studying at Liverpool Art Institute from I957 – I960. During his lifetime, he produced numerous series of sketches and lithographs, which were first published starting in the early 1960s. Often surreal and composed through a method of free association, his drawings from this period were widely considered some of the finest interpretive artworks of the era.
