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.
