I bought this book to remind me of some of the pieces I loved in the exhibition. It's a fantastic collection of images of Grayson's works and some of the those items produced by the unknown crafts people that he included in the exhibition.
It's a great book that I am finding more entertaining than I thought - love it - buy your own copy!
If you like Grayson Perry, you'll love this book. The range of mediums he works in is impressive, and the selection of works here could (almost) mean that you wouldn't have to put the book out of sight when Grandma comes to visit!
Grayson Perry's humanity and open-mindedness make this book a fascinating read. Sadly I missed the exhibition but this gives a flavour of it. An interesting book for anyone exploring contemporary art and the rationale behind it.
I once heard Grayson Perry speak. He arrived for the event on a motorcycle and wearing a printed dress. You never know what to expect from this artist but you will not be disappointed by this enjoyable book made to accompany his exhibition. It is a treat.
Artists always have a unique way of looking at visual material. Mr. Perry curated with a sensibility that one might not expect,judging from his own work. He is a articulate man. I wish more artists were give the opportunity he was. He is a rare talent.
What the hell is Amazon playing at? My copy of this wonderful book - and a copy of 'Playing to the Gallery' - both arrived scuffed and marked and to make matters worse, they are meant to be presents. Do the pickers in the Amazon warehouse enjoy tearing the book covers and kicking them around the floor? Are they trying to make a particular point, or are they just bored? I will to buy these again now, but this time, from a High Street bookshop. Shame on you, Amazon, I expected much better.
