Concentrating on Grayson Perry’s recent works, this volume marks the further development of the Turner Prize winning artist’s highly complex pottery, as well as his iconic maps, and the ground-breaking architectural design of his 2013 House for Essex. Edited by writer and art historian Jacky Klein, whose accompanying text is sober, erudite, and informed.


The reader is provided with a window into the complicated and diverse inspiration behind Perry’s work, influences as diverse as African Power figures, mediaeval altarpieces, and traditional American quilts. But whether drawing on ancient ritual and religion or the mores of contemporary life, Perry’s often controversial commentary on modern society is both sharp and sound.
