"A collection of poems by Yoko Ono in English & Japanese & photos of her Instruction Paintings. Ono had done an exhibition of instructions as paintings at Sogetsu Art Center in Tokyo in 1962. In 1961, she had done a show of instruction paintings at AG Gallery in New York. This book contains poems & instruction paintings from those exhibits. The poems give instructions to the reader or viewer on how to create a painting for oneself that is really a living activity; for example, 'Painting to See the Sky: Drill two holes into a canvas. Hang it where you can see the sky.' Onos work makes this a unique & creative book."
