— The ABC Of Damian Hirst

In an effort to introduce children to art (particularly his own) at a young age, British art star Damien Hirst has released an ABC book that uses his own oeuvre to illustrate each letter. Pitched as “fun for the whole family”, the book takes a child-friendly retrospective look at Hirst’s career and teaches us that A is for Anatomy, P is for Pig, and Z is for Zebra. Meanwhile, adult readers can delve deeper into Hirst’s work, much of which addresses the “scientific, philosophical and religious issues which lie at the heart of human existence.” The book is available now from Other Criteria for £15 (approx. $25 USD) and has been printed using soya bean ink to make it extra kid-friendly.
