"Funny, profound and surprising all at the same time" (Harry Hill)
"A brilliant new volume" (Scotland on Sunday)
"Consistently funny" (Daily Telegraph)
"[A] master of modern surrealism . . . a must for fans of the absurd" (Evening Standard)
"On the kink of his line Shrigley can shift effortlessly from pathos to paranoia. And his work is funny - very funny - his timing devastatingly effective." (Will Self)
"Weird, funny, abject, wise, silly, savage, moral and engaging." (Independent)
"David Shrigley is probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lived." (Dave Eggers)
"With a casual gesture Shrigley points to that hideous shape whose name I've never known - and then he names it. And the name is profoundly, embarrassingly familiar. I'm laughing while frantically searching for a pen, so desperate to capture the feeling he has unearthed in me." (Miranda July)
"Shrigley's comedy appears to confirm the belief of great humourists (from Laurence Sterne to Woody Allen) that laughter is synonymous with hope. In the arena of contemporary art, Shrigley's work maintains a dualism, which is rare, rewarding and ultimately generous." (Frieze)
"David Shrigley is a rare thing in the art world: someone whose work people - normal(ish) people - actually love" (The Skinny)
"The Glasgow-based artist's scribbly drawings and witty captions have inspired a cult following and a celebrity fanbase including Will Self and Franz Ferdinand." (X Magazine)
"David Shrigley's wonderfully skewed cartoons" (The Glasgow Herald)
"Shrigley specialises in the humour of a horny teenage boy crossed with an uptight conservative wrangling with modern moral dilemmas. Needless to say, we are in love." (The Gay Times)
"a must for fans of the absurd" (ES magazine)
"Half man, half legend" (Skinny)
"Over the 300 or so pages, Shrigley mines a mordant, scatological seam, conjuring up the dark tradition of British humour that threw up Tony Hancock and Chris Morris" (The Times)
"Of his 20-odd books, this is by far the best. Plus, he's really famous now, so this might be the only way you'll ever own anything he's drawn" (X Magazine)
"A massive yellow compendium of paintings, writings, sculptures and scrawlings from an artist touched by comic genius and something like full-blown lunacy" (The Lady)
The definitive collection of the work of cult artist David Shrigley, who has been nominated for the Turner Prize 2013See all Product Description

My favourite artist!
Book arrived next day in fab condition
I saw his gallery exhibition at the Hayward and bought this book after. Well made/printed, loads of material, all a bit unsettling. Exactly what I expected!Published on 27 Jun. 2014 by Amazon Customer
David Shrigley may not be to everyone's taste, but his brand of humour is (in my opinion) thought-provoking and also hilarious. Read morePublished on 10 Feb. 2014 by Invershneckie
book and if you have the chance to read it and reread every time you are a little unhappy it is the greatest thing aroundPublished on 15 Oct. 2013 by regalgnome
I was under the impression that art and artists communicated new ideas, feelings, emotions and insights. That they provoked "Aha! Read morePublished on 29 May 2013 by R. Schulz
