Damien Hirst - "I Want to Spend the Rest of My Life Everywhere, with Everyone, One to One, Always, Forever, now".


334 pages complete with gate-folds, pop ups, die cuts and inserts and with loose poster at the end of the book and with all the classic sharks and dot paintings that are a hallmark of Hirst. Bound in the original red cloth, stamped with graphics and with black title to spine and with the photographic dust wrapper present. A fine, clean, bright copy. This, Hirst's first book, is a collection of his ideas and obsessions about life and art in a powerful combination of text and visual elements. It covers the range of his work-paintings, sculptures and installations up to 1997. Essays by Gordon Burn and Stuart Morgan and designed by Jonathan Barnbrook. This large heavy Art book is an extraordinary and ambitious piece of printing, a tour de force of the time. 'Beautifully produced - this book is magnificent' - Sarah Kent, Time Out 'Astonishing - I tell you it's enormous, in every sense of the word' - Esquire 'It's a dazzling combination of the sublime and the unthinkable' - Richard Cork, The Times '
