My skin rarely tingles when I read or view an art book. It does when that artist is Jack Vettriano. This particular offering has several strengths - decent size reproductions of the paintings, a very good range, which includes many lesser known works, a chronology of the exhibitions that made him - with full listings of the works exhibited. This appeals to the aesthete in me and the geek in me, as well as the voyeur! I recommend this book as the best intro to Vettriano, both for fans and those who don't 'get' him at all. (Although I will say that those who fail to get Vettriano are just being wilfully snobbish.)Have a good stare at the less sexual offerings and consider their power as mood poems. Have a good stare at the more sexual ones and consider how much they say about things other than sex.
