Reviews

  • This book is full of good jokes, full of cartoons, full of memorable epigrams, but above all full of thought-provoking ideas that make you want to pause on every page and say: "Discuss." I have never read such a stimulating short guide to art. It should be issued as a set text in every school

    Lynn Barber, Sunday Times
  • A visual and intellectual delight

    Time Out
  • Punchy, mischievous ... Hugely entertaining. You could, genuinely, take an aphorism or a quote from every second page ... This is splendid, transgressive stuff ... a love letter to art ... a thing of pleasure: petite, luxuriously printed, a mischievous little hymn to 21st-century inclusivity

    Melanie Reid, The Times
  • It reveals Perry to be not just an artist but a wordsmith, too... It is acute and funny at the same time. This, I think, is why people love Perry so much.

    Daily Telegraph
  • A joy to read

    New Statesman
  • A polemic for inclusivity... The great thing about Perry's statement of it here is that you are always convinced that he believes it and lives by it

    Observer
  • It's unputdownable! It's really relevant to anyone who does anything ... A great book ... Grayson is brilliant
