Damien Hirst's new book for children

You are never too young to buy your first Hirst.

Damien Hirst has published an alphabet book for babies in which each letter is paired with one of his artworks.

The book is printed with “child-friendly soya bean ink” though some of the images are less child-friendly. J is for Jaws (of a pickled shark), L is for Lamb (trapped in a tank), and M is for… Molecules. No, not Money.

That’s taken care of by the cover price: a rather adult £15.
