An innovative and eloquent primer on artists whose work you may wish to explore further ... ideal for artists or students seeking inspiration.


- The Guardian


A cute and affordable series of art books, produced with love and care.


- The Independent


The first two books in the series ... are on Gavin Turk and Gary Hume and follow the same format of informative interview followed by well-chosen colour plates accompanied by extended captions, and are just the thing to open-up unsuspecting browsers - or Christmas stocking recipients - to contemporary art.


- Art Monthly


A brilliantly conceived series.
