‘If Pop Art is about liking things, as Andy Warhol said, then folk art is about loving things’ – Jeremy Deller

This is a book about the creative life of Britain and the first attempt since the Festival of Britain to document the popular and folk art of the present day. Organised by Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane, Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK, presents a personal selection of objects and actions, containing elements of ambition, humour, pathos and resistance, which present us with invaluable evidence of creative life in Britain today.

Includes a diary of selected events and an essay by Jeremy Millar.

Originally published in 2005, fourth edition 2013.
