Lennon's "Imagine" lyrics become art piece

Yoko Ono and the estate of John Lennon have given the go-ahead to art team Airside (the duo behind the psychedelic Lemon Jelly packaging) to show a new art piece based on the lyrics to Lennon's "Imagine." The piece, which will hang in London's PYMCA gallery, consists of a black canvas with the lyrics embossed in white. Said Airside about the piece: "Its sentiment is pure and to pollute the print with any sort of ink would somehow be wrong. Lennon is held up as quite a reverent figure so we wanted to reflect that. We had the idea to purely de-boss the print so that you get the lyrical context from the light falling onto the print."
Signed and numbered prints will be available in a limited edition of 100, and they'll set you back 150 British pounds (just under $300). Which is a far better deal than paying $5000 for a painting made out of Pete Doherty's blood.
