The Lennons invade Tokyo in 1977
Description                           Estimate: $5,000+          

Uncommon ANS, one page on the reverse of 5.75 x 4 postcard showing the Great Buddha of Kamakura, postmarked Okura Hotel, Tokyo, Japan, June 11, 1977. A note to Barrold Nichols of Apple Records, in part: “Hi from Budaha land! love, John Yoko Sean.” Lennon draws a portrait of his family below—himself, Yoko, and Sean—and addresses the postcard in his own hand, adding “Great Briton, U.K…?” In fine condition. During a family trip to Tokyo in 1977, Lennon formally announced his break from the music industry, a hiatus that would last until 1980. While away from music, Lennon devoted himself to his family, created numerous drawings—many of which were published and sold as lithographs—and began writing material for an autobiography that would be published posthumously. Among his many artworks during this time were drawings of his family, just as seen in the original sketch he adds here. Boasting one of Lennon’s drawings from this important period of artistic creativity, this unique piece represents a formative point of his artistic career. Pre-certified REAL.
