More About the Author
"Emin-an artist who is not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve, or, indeed too embroider it on a blanket-personally chose the pictures for this book, and the delicate sketches are at once a glimpse of the profundity she's capable of, and a reminder of vulnerability."" Nylon Magazine"

She is amongst the many talentless people, from a conveyor belt of dross, who are sucking the very life blood out of art.
This book is proof, if it were needed, of Celebritism gone mad.
That said, I just would like to add a curious information about this inane book by an inane artist.
My very busy local library bought two copies of the book. They are side by side in the art shelf.
I guess that they bought two copies for the same library because Ms. Emin is an official artist who is always endorsed by the establishment, although she is likely to think of herself as "revolutionary".
Fortunately, lie has short legs. Both copies of the mentioned inane book were bought about two years ago by my local library. I went there, before writing this review, and checked
the books. One of the copies had been on loan only once. The second copy was never out on loan. That, after two years...
I understand that a library would purchase books by Tracey Emin but to buy two copies of the same book, a book that was completely ignored by the readers, shows
how her endorsement by the establishment doesn't reflect the public opinion.
Tracey Emin certainly appeals to some art critics, lazy government officials and the media,
always eager for "tabloid art" but, for an unbiased public, her work is as inane as this horrendous, pathetic book.
PS. This review was wrongly placed by Amazon's review team. My original review is about the inane book " one thousand drawings by Tracey Emin " but the same review is also appearing on the page about "Tracey Emin", a completely different book.
In any case, the book "Tracey Emin" , a glorifying profile of an inane artist, could be describe as an inane book about an inane artist. I tried to edit the review
about "Tracey Emin" but the changes I made also appeared in this review about the inane drawings...So, I will keep both until Amazon fixes this mess.
Doubtless her supporters would claim this gauche, anti-art, charmlessness is in fact central to her aim. This is ofcourse nothing new, Maggi Hambling has been doing this better and for decades before Emin. In order to enjoy this and indeed ALL of her work you would need to feel a great deal of sympathy for and interest in Emin's pseudo-solipsistic outlook on life. (Needless to say I don't.)
By way of contrast, students of visual art ( who Emin laughably recommends this book to) would do well to look instead to the work of Kathe Kollwitz if they wish to see powerful emotion brilliantly expressed graphically.
