This is the catalogue issued on the occasion of Damien Hirst's tour-de-force 1991 Institute of Contemporary Art London exhibition - the enfant terrible of the New British Art scene's very first one-man museum presentation. The first monographic publication on his work, this elegant document reproduces each of the exhibited butterfly paintings, dot paintings and glass vitrine pieces, and includes a transcribed interview between Hirst and Sophie Calle.
A brand new, most handsome example from the exceedingly uncommon deluxe edition bound in full dark blue leather-over-boards debossed with yellow lettering limited to two hundred and fifty copies NUMBERED (114/250) AND BOLDLY SIGNED "Damien Hirst". Two copy letters from Sophie Calle laid-in as issued. Original blue artificial leather, lettered in yellow.
