Kurzbeschreibung

10. Dezember 2012
John Lennon was a writer as well as a musician. It was entirely natural for him to put pen to paper whenever he had an idea, a thought, a reaction or a desire to communicate. He lived - and died - in an age before emails and texts. Pen and ink was what he turned to. John wrote letters and postcards all of his life; to his friends, family, strangers, newspapers, organisations, lawyers and the laundry - most of which were funny, informative, campaigning, wise, mad, poetic, anguished and sometimes heartbreaking. For the first time, John's widow, Yoko Ono, has given permission to publish a collection of his letters. The Editor is the Beatles' official biographer, Hunter Davies, who knew John well. John's letters are in a way something of a mystery - where are they all? Over the years many have come up at auction, then sold to dealers and collectors. Or they have been kept by the recipients, locked up safely. It has been a wonderful piece of detective work tracing many of these 250 letters, postcards and notes, which are arranged in chronological order, so that a narrative builds up, reflecting John's life. The book is visual - in a sense that many of the letters are reproduced as they were, in his handwriting or typing, plus the odd cartoon or doodle. The app contains selected content from the book, with 10 additional letters exclusive to the app with numerous features that enhance the book content, including audio of the letters, read by Christopher Ecclestone; a curated playlist of John Lennon music via iTunes; access to transcripts of each letter for complete legibility; and a foreword recorded by Yoko Ono.

Pressestimmen

This is a gorgeous app built with love and care. All of John's notes can be listened to, thanks to the excellent voiceover work of former Doctor Who actor Christopher Eccleston. Priced at $9 or GBP6, this isn't a cheap app but it is a beautiful one, and has plenty to offer to Beatles fans, music lovers and social historians. Give it to someone as a festive gift. Best enjoyed on a cold winter evening, in front of a roaring fire, with a glass of something tasty in one hand, and with Abbey Road playing loud in the background. Lovely. CULT OF MAC.COM 20121219

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book. 27. September 2012
Von Stilson Greene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The first thing you will notice is how beautifully this book is designed. Great thought was put into the paper which has a wonderful thick and rich feel, to the tones of the overall color scheme(white and ivories) to the actual letterpress look of the typography, it's a package that had careful attention paid to it. The actual book is revelatory in that it actually gives the innermost thoughts of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. John was honest and was never afraid to say what he was feeling at the time, those feelings changed and shifted as he moved through the events of his life. The letters are funny, cruel, witty, romantic, bitter, loving, happy, sad, nasty, contrite and brutal. They are also peppered with his simple yet beautiful Thurberesque drawings and doodles. Admittedly I am an unabashed Lennon fan, this collection is a gift, allowing a glimpse into this complicated artist and icon's thoughts, but more importantly his humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a little piece (peace) of john 28. September 2012
Von hb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
WOW. Another birthday present from Yoko, via Hunter Davies. John's handwritten letters, reproduced with his little cartoons and all, transcribed with plenty of context. Something old, but which is new for all of John's many fans worldwide. All you need is this book as you remember John on his birthday October 9th. Don't hesitate - this is beautiful (and essential for collectors).

5.0 von 5 Sternen An intimate look into John Lennon's life 5. November 2012
Von Denise R. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
It's the small artifacts of everyday life which reveal so much about us - the notes, letters, photos, lists, all capture our daily moods, thoughts, big events & small moments. Some are intimate; others are mundane, but they all have the capacity to shed light on who we are.

Collected here are John Lennon's letters, postcards and other ephemera; each pictured with a transcription (in case you can't read his handwriting) and well-written text to give context to each item. They show John's humor, kindness, friendship and creativity, as well as his darker sides - frustration, anger, and sadness.

The book is beautifully produced - 392 pages, on heavyweight, high-quality paper, with color (and a few black & white) reproductions of the letters and other items, a full index, a brief foreword by Yoko, and an introduction by the editor, Hunter Davies. The contents are gathered into 23 chapters, each detailing a different period of John's life, or topic. Just a few of these are - for example - Early Years (childhood); Hamburg; Beatlemania; India; Apple Dramas, Problems with Paul; Double Fantasy. Many of the pieces are embellished with John's drawings.

The items in The John Lennon Letters were obviously collected, considered, and written about with great care; Hunter Davies has done a great job in curating this collection. I'm always wary of writing five-star reviews (there's usually some improvement that could have been made), but you know there's really nothing here that I can find fault with.

There's plenty here to see, read, and reflect on, and it all combines to paint a deeply personal portrait of the man, John Lennon. As a longtime Beatles fan, I've gotten great enjoyment out of this book and the glimpses it offers into John and his relationships with others. Anyone interested in John, the Beatles, or their history should find this book engrossing and a pleasure to delve into.
