There are some pictures in this - obviously - and some essays by other writers about the art, which I didn't fancy, and in the middle of the book, one interview with the artist, which I did read, but overall, I wasn't grabbed by this book.

It's for people who like sentences like this: "Minimally anthropomorphic, it was mischievously poised between playfulness and danger and presaged later works such as..." BLEAH!!!
