David Shrigley is the quickest, smartest artist-satirist of a brilliant generation. IN THE BEGINNING was the world and an innocent young Shrigley made drawings of it in his sketchbooks. Sometimes he added words to the drawings. Sometimes he just wrote words. And the world he draws is dark indeed - but funny and true. True about such things as the vanity of human wishes, the certainty of night, the bad temper of pets and the strangeness of love. Not the whole truth, maybe. But true enough to make you uncomfortable, and to make you laugh out loud when you're not wincing. THE BOOK OF SHRIGLEY contains over 150 new drawings, sketchbook entries from student days, sad and funny ephemera, and texts that illuminate his work with a sideways light. David Shrigley is the author of numerous cult bestsellers including Human Achievement and Why We Got the Sack from the Museum. A celebrated artist, he has exhibited his work all over the world.
