In 2014, Damien Hirst (born 1965) unveiled a new series of paintings made up of vast numbers of surgical instruments that combine to form bird's-eye views of cities from around the world. With the "Black Scalpel Cityscapes," Hirst investigates subjects pertaining to the sometimes-disquieting realities of modern life--surveillance, urbanization, globalization and the virtual nature of conflict--as well as those relating to the human condition in general, such as our inability to arrest physical decay. Described by the artist as "portraits of living cities," the series is illustrated in full and accompanied by a comprehensive list of artwork details in this signed limited edition, which features a black zipper down the spine. The volume also includes an essay by Jerry Brotton, author of "A History of the World in Twelve Maps," and a fictional short story by novelist and arts writer Michael Bracewell.

This book comes in three different color patterns (all with the same cover design).The most comprehensive book devoted to the incomparable and iconic work of Yayoi Kusama. Yayoi Kusama, now in her eighties, has become a vital force in contemporary art and an influence on generations of artists. Arriving in New York City in 1958 from her native Japan, she embarked on a series of works that forged a new visual vocabulary--the Net paintings, which were composed of scores of small, thickly painted loops spanning large canvases. Her singular approach to art making continued in other extraordinary bodies of work, including the phallic soft sculptures which she later incorporated into full-scale environments. In 1973 she returned to Japan, where she lives and works today. Since then, she has created dazzling walk-in mirror rooms and her now-famous pumpkin sculptures, as well as writing poetry and novels. In this book--created in close collaboration with Kusama and her Tokyo studio--the breadth and import of this watershed artist's career are considered in depth. In addition to studies of the development of her artistic vocabularies across different media, the book includes ephemera, sketches, and photographs from the artist's extensive archive that have never been seen before. The publication is timed to coincide with the artist's major touring retrospective, which makes its American debut at the Whitney Museum in New York in summer 2012, as well as with the much-anticipated collaboration with powerhouse fashion brand Louis Vuitton.Contributors include: Leslie Camhi, RoseLeeGoldberg, Laura Hoptman, Chris Kraus, Arthur Lubow, Kevin McGarry, Louise Neri, Akira Tatehata, and Olivier Zahm.

Published on the occasion of Relics, Hirsts first retrospective exhibition in Doha, Qatar, this richly illustrated book offers a different perspective on the work of one of the best-known artists working today. Tracing Hirsts career from his emergence on the art scene in the Young British Artists movement to his present status as one of the most controversial and highly regarded artists of his generation, the volume offers a complete overview on his wideranging practice, which includes installation, painting, sculpture and drawing, and challenges the boundaries between art, science and popular culture. The catalog gathers over one hundred works, combining historic oeuvres with more recent projects: from The Kingdom to The history of pain, from Pharmacy to For the Love of God, to the spot, spin and butterfly paintings. With an essay by Francesco Bonami, and an interview to the artist by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, the volume offers an original point of view on Hirsts oeuvre, thanks to the essays by the Qatari writer Sophia Al Maria and the Pakistani writer Mohsin Hamid. A unique contribution to our understanding and appreciation of Damien Hirst, whose works have become collective icons of our civilization.

In 2005 Damien Hirst began photographing every dispensing pharmacy in the Greater London area. Shooting both the individual pharmacists behind their counters and the exterior views of the city's 1,832 chemists, the project has taken over a decade to complete. The images are brought together in their entirety in this extraordinary ten-volume artist's book, which presents a portrait of the city through the people and places that prescribe the medicines we take on a habitual and daily basis. Hirst's career-long obsession with the minimalist aesthetics employed by pharmaceutical companies--the cool colors and simple geometric forms--fi rst manifested in his series of Medicine Cabinets, conceived in 1988 while still at Goldsmiths College. For his 1992 installation Pharmacy Hirst recreated an entire chemist within the gallery space, stating: "I've always seen medicine cabinets as bodies, but also like a cityscape or civilization, with some sort of hierarchy within it. [ Pharmacy ] is also like a contemporary museum. In a hundred years it will look like an old apothecary." Pharmacy London similarly embodies the artist's realization of an "idea of a moment in time." The publica- tion also, however, reads as a distilled expression of Hirst's continuing belief in the near-religious role medicine plays in our society.

This publication accompanies the Damien Hirst 'Two Weeks One Summer' exhibition at White Cube Gallery, May 2012. Painting has always been an important part of Hirst's oeuvre, but unlike the spot paintings and photorealist series which were made using a collaborative studio process, this body of work is altogether more personal: painted from life, by Hirst in his Devon studio.The paintings, often intimate in size, could be seen as traditional still lifes, depicting an array of carefully arranged elements, both natural and inanimate, sometimes memento mori, alongside objects and formal devices that have made their appearance in Hirst's sculptures and installations before. Exquisitely coloured birds on display stands or in simple glass boxes, butterflies, fruit and cherry blossom at the peak of its beauty, intimate the pure joy of spring's transition into summer but also the temporal significance of this natural phenomenon.Next to these bucolic objects, more sinister symbols take their place: oversized scissors, a shark's gaping jawbone, bell jars and even several lonely single or conjoined foetuses floating in jars, elements that are displaced from the laboratory table rather than the domestic one. Some objects are painted with clarity and impasto; others appear hazy and faint, as if they are somehow more insubstantial, part of a sudden apparition or dream-like vision.

Hirst plays with the concept of scale and perception in an Alice in Wonderland-esque playground. Oversized versions of syringes, ampoules, pharmaceutical boxes, a scalpel and drug packaging reach up to the spectators at nearly one and a half metres tall. This clinical visual exploration into the mind of Hirst reveals an ornate analysis of his concept, looking into the aesthetic values of the pharmaceutical industry and the contemporary belief systems of religion, love, art and medicine.

"Breakfast at The Wolseley gave Damien and I the perfect opportunity to discuss the business of the day," remembers Frank Dunphy, Damien Hirst's business manager, "the bow-tied super-ego to Mr. Hirst's id," as The Wall Street Journal has described him. "Always on time, Damien would first hold out his hand for a pen or pencil and would then begin sketching on the back of his placemat." Portraits of Frankis published to coincide with Dunphy's retirement after almost 15 years with the artist. Seen here for the first time, Hirst's portraits were sketched during the pair's regular breakfast meetings at the famous Wolseley restaurant in London between 2004 and 2010. They provide a touching illustration of Frank and Damien's collaborative relationship as it unfolded over the course of some of the most extraordinary years of the artist's career.
