The JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision was conceived by Jonathan Polk, of Boxofvision LLC. “To mark the 70th anniversary of John’s birth, we have created something special that we believe his fans will treasure, and we hope they will pass on to their children as a way of helping to preserve the legacy of John’s music and ideals for future generations,” said Polk. The JOHN LENNON Box Of Vision is being released in conjunction with the John Lennon Time Capsule project, three time capsules which will be sealed on October 9, 2010 to be unsealed in a worldwide ceremony on October 9, 2040.
