This title is presented with an afterword by Yoko Ono and original illustrations by the author. John Lennon wrote the material collected in "Skywriting by Word of Mouth" during Yoko Ono's pregnancy with Sean Lennon. After John's assassination in 1980, his manuscript was stolen from the Lennon's home. "Skywriting" was finally published in 1986, and it displays all of Lennon's extraordinary creativity and inventiveness with language. It includes Lennon's only piece of autobiography, "The Ballad of John and Yoko" as well as short works of fiction, accounts of falling in love, marriage, the break-up of the Beatles and life in America.

Before he was a singer, a Beatle, or a music legend, JOHN LENNON was an artist. Professionally trained, he attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute from 1957 to 1960. Although Lennon is best known as a singer-songwriter, his legacy was also one of social revolution, humanitarianism, and artistry. His artwork lives on as an inspiring tribute to his hope for global peace and love.
