Format: Paperback
The book itself is beautiful. It has wonderful touches like an essay pad binding and a cheap diary-style cloth bookmark. The art itself is presented without the usual, maddening interference of a curator. It's just page after page of art, presented as a journal. It is hilarious, smart, and beautiful. The irony of this title is that while it is an avant-garde pop art project, the air is refreshingly clean of the smug, hipper-than-thou self-awareness that attends most of this type of art. It is a gem of a book.

The droll hip Scots wit repeatedly does the near-impossible, which is to make this veteran humor-writer laugh out loud. How Shrigley does it is an enigma. Possibly it's some car-crash of paradoxes--knowing innocence; optimistic nihilism; sage insanity--delivering a sneaky critique of our bleak state of affairs. He's the child raised by wolves whose scrawls are destined for museum walls. Yeah, I love this artist. Five stars if I hadn't devoured the book in a trice.

Need a good intro to Shrigley's work? Get this one. Priced right. It feels good in your hand. And its full of classic good SHrigley pieces. Yes, there's a few short essays about Shrigley in there. They're unneccessary, ignorable. But Shrigley's work is excellent, and you will enjoy picking this one up and browsing pretty frequently. Don't have any books by Shrigley yet? Get this one. And if you already like him and don't have this one yet, get it as well.
