grapefruit: yoko ono’s book of instructions 9.9.13 | 4:27am Always on the lookout for things that shift our view and spark ideas, we were very happy to discover that Yoko Ono’s 1970 book Grapefruit: A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono has been reprinted.

Then Yoko made additions for an expanded volume in 1970 or so. Amy Daniewicz 09.10.2013 at 11:48pm # Ha! I love it! It does sound like a good source for a daily tonic, or a koan. What a find!
