Damien Hirst (b. 1965), arguably the most well-known artist at
work today, has here created a fantastic ABC, using his art to
illustrate the alphabet in a large-format board book for art lovers
of all ages. Filled with dissected cows and sheep, butterflies, the
incredible diamond skull, and many other well-known Hirst themes,
the book spans his entire career, and illustrates how his body of
work addresses the scientific, philosophical, and religious issues
that lie at the heart of human existence.
Praise for Damien Hirst ABC:
Never have we seen the alphabet spelled out with such compelling
corresponding visualsthis is a picture book we're happy to share
with our less than well-behaved toddler friends."
Nothing captures the season's spirit like Damien Hirst ABC, in
which the original Young British Artist interprets the alphabet,
from A is for Anatomy to Z is for (pickled) Zebra."
Geared toward art fans of all ages and features an assortment of
the artist's work like cheerful butterflies, fish and unicorns."
