Imagine by John Lennon – Illustrated by Jean Jullien (Frances Lincoln)

This epic song needs no introduction. The biggest-selling single of his solo career, John Lennon created a timeless classic with ‘Imagine‘.

In partnership with Amnesty International, ‘Imagine’ is the first picture book to be set to Lennon’s iconic lyrics with eye-catching artwork from Jean Jullien.

Jullien has created a truly thoughtful and tender reimagined visual representation of this huge hit.

Using a bird to denote a symbol of freedom, Jean Jullien’s reinvention follows a pigeon on its mission to spread peace, kindness and understanding around the world.

Featuring a foreword from Yoko Ono and produced with her blessing, this striking book provides the ideal way to help young people understand humanitarian problems that are faced by all walks of life, across the world.

A perfect introduction to the work of Amnesty and the importance of protecting our human rights for a fairer world.

With vibrant spreads supported by lyrics that ring true whatever the decade, this makes for an engaging read and one which will resonate across generations.

It will introduce a younger audience to an iconic song and perhaps provide a fresh perspective for those who know the song well.
