John Lennon created this series of drawings to illustrate his wedding and honeymoon with Yoko Ono, and gave them to her as a present in 1969. The next year, a series of fifteen lithographs were created based on the original drawings and exhibited in New York and London. The seven erotic plates (six present here) were confiscated by Scotland Yard as pornography. Lennon was prosecuted under the Metropolitan Police Act 1839, which made it an offence to distribute indecent material in a public thoroughfare. A trial ensued, but the case was dismissed after three weeks.
From the numbered edition of 300.
