Yoko Ono : Collector of Skies
by Nell Beram and Carolyn Boriss-Krimsky




Overview -
This lyrical biography explores the life and art of Yoko Ono, from her childhood haiku to her avant-garde visual art and experimental music. An outcast throughout most of her life, and misunderstood by every group she was supposed to belong to, Yoko always followed her own unique vision to create art that was ahead of its time and would later be celebrated. Her focus remained on being an artist, even when the rest of world saw her only as the wife of John Lennon.
Yoko Ono's moving story will inspire any young adult who has ever felt like an outsider, or who is developing or questioning ideas about being an artist, to follow their dreams and find beauty in all that surrounds them.

Praise for Yoko Ono: Collector of Skies
STARRED REVIEW
"Clean text space, delicate but legible font, and scads of photographic portraiture and art piece reproductions of excellent clarity contribute to an overall book design worthy of its subject."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A detailed portrait of a complex woman who for several reasons has a significant place in our cultural history. Even rabid fans of Lennon or the 1960s will find new information and angles in this searching study."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This beautifully produced, comprehensive, and highly sympathetic biography of the artist covers her entire life, reporting her influences and her accomplishments, and bringing her out from behind the shadow of her famous husband."
--School Library Journal

"This is handsomely designed and generously illustrated; it is also well researched and filled with intriguing details. There's not a lot for young people about Ono. They will find this a good starting place."
