D is for Diamonds

Last night I attended the Other Criteria launch of ABC by Damien Hirst. It’s an ABC book for children using some of his most famous works of art. Is S for Skull? No. But D is for Diamonds, as in diamond skull. J is for Jaws (as in shark jaws), C is for Cow…you get the picture (pardon the pun).

The book is produced with ‘child friendly’ soya bean ink and the book acts as a perfect introduction to Hirst’s work, whilst also helping kids with their ABCs. It’s a really nice book, and even if you’re not a child it’s a great collection of his work and would look great on any bookshelf.

My particular favourite is the diamond skull paper weights (there is also a really nice pin badge too) and the beautiful wallpaper collection.

The store, on Hinde Street, London hosted the launch party and I was delighted to get to see some original Damien Hirst art on display around the gallery. I wouldn’t mind having one of the butterfly pictures on my wall!
