On October 1st, Other Criteria will launch the publication ABC by the artist Damien Hirst. From A is for Anatomy to Z is for Zebra, the reader will be able to discover Hirst’s paintings, sculptures, and much more on every page of this beautifully illustrated alphabet book.
Hirst’s body of work addresses the scientific, philosophical and religious issues which lie at the heart of human existence.
Produced with child friendly ‘soya bean ink’, ABC is fun for all the family and acts as an introduction to Hirst’s work. Each of the twenty-six carefully selected images span Hirst’s career, representing his iconic imagery. ABC is a new colourful way to look and learn about the English alphabet.
ABC is also a window into typography, each letter represents an alphabetically led font, A is for Albertus, B is for Baskerville.
“When we are no longer children, we are already dead” Constantin Brancusi. One of Damien’s favourite quotes.
