Published Apr 22, 2010As we told you last October, eternally hip entrepreneur Thurston Moore was taking a little break from new Sonic Youth music to launch a publishing branch from his Ecstatic Peace record label. Called Ecstatic Peace Library, the publishing division is dedicated to releasing books that look wonderful, but don't fill your brain with all of that pesky learning. You know, "art books." That's exactly the case with one of EPL's first offerings.
As revealed by our friends at TwentyFourBit, the publishers have just released a book from Yoko Ono called Fly Me that serves multiple purposes. Consult the following description:
Fly Me is a handbound book that unfolds to become a kite, featuring seven pages of individual messages or instructions composed by Ono. These messages are designed to be read by all, in the sky on a windy day. You simply unfold the page you wish to fly and attach the paper to the bamboo frame included to construct a massive (30 × 36 inch) diamond-shaped kite.
In case you didn't catch it, Fly Me literally unfolds into a kite! As if that weren't enough, Ecstatic Peace Library have also just released limited works from Kim Gordon, Raymond Pettibon and Thurston Moore, among others. Check out the catalogue here.
