Based on his hugely popular Reith Lectures for BBC, this is Grayson Perry’s illustrated, funny, personal journey through the art world, answering questions and providing his version of how the art world operates.
‘I have never read such a stimulating short guide to art. It should be issued as a set text in every school.’ –Lynn Barber, Sunday Times
Perry’s Reith Lectures were, according to a note at the beginning of the book, the most popular since the series began, and this can be put this down not just to his charm, the dresses and the teddy bear, but to the promise he made to help “contemporary art in its struggle to be understood”.
This is a disarming, smart and revealing book.
Hardback edition – drastically reduced.
