Hardback.  First edition.  “Best-known for his wry and witty drawings, British artist David Shrigley’s artistic practice extends well beyond drawing to include photography, sculpture, neon signs, animation, painting, printmaking, publishing and music. In an unusually complete look at Shrigley’s diverse creative approach, this book showcases a body of conceptual work that is filled with sardonic caricatures, slapstick situations and black humour. With an immediate and accessible appeal to diverse audiences, Shrigley’s work offers an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major survey show, in London s Hayward Gallery, this beautifully appointed volume features an interview by writer Dave Eggers, essays by Martin Herbert and Cliff Lauson and an original piece of prose contributed by artist Jonathan Monk. The book also features a new 7-inch picture disc featuring exclusive recorded original spoken word material created specifically for the book and presented in exclusive screen-printed packaging. Interview with the artist by Dave Eggers. Essays by Cliff Lauson and Martin Herbert, with a prose piece by Jonathan Monk.”  Condition: Very good.
