Ono's Imagine history for T&H

Ono's Imagine history for T&H

Yoko Ono will share the story of the making of John Lennon’s album “Imagine” in a “landmark publication” with Thames & Hudson.

The book is due for release in October 2018 and will contain “unseen photographs, artefacts and new interviews” with the people who were there when the album was conceived and recorded.

This year Ono belatedly received an official co-credit on the album’s title track, in accordance with Lennon’s wishes.

Ono said: “A lot has been written about the creation of the song, the album and the film of ‘Imagine’, mainly by people who weren’t there, so I’m very pleased and grateful that now, for the first time, so many of the participants have kindly given their time to ‘gimme some truth’ in their own words and pictures.”

Tristan de Lancey, head of illustrated reference at Thames & Hudson, signed the title directly from Ono.
