In 1965, The New York Times called Tokyo-born, New York-based Fluxus artist Yoko Ono a one person culture explosion. In this generous volume, Ono presents instruction pieces from 1961 to the present, including three scores from her iconic 1964 artists book, Grapefruit--Drinking Piece for Orchestra, Bicycle Piece for Orchestra and Painting to Be Slept On--which are republished here for the first time.

Ono has explained the origin of these works: ...sometimes for financial reasons, sometimes for technical difficulties, I could never realize all the ideas which were literally bombarding me. But now, I could just write instructions. It freed me. Also included are more than 100 drawings from Franklin Summer, a series begun in 1994, comprising 1,400 inkblot drawings on paper, and Vertical Memory (1997)--dedicated to Onos father--a photograph in 21 parts depicting a distorted face. The piece, which Ono considers her best, is a culmination of her lifes work.
