John Lennon and Yoko Ono were married in Gibraltar, and spent their honeymoon
in Amsterdam campaigning with a week-long Bed-In for peace. The couple had
planned on a similar campaign in the U.S., but were denied. A series of fourteen lithographs were released depicting scenes from the honeymoon, eight of which
were deemed indecent and most of which were banned and confiscated.
