'It's easy to feel insecure around art and its appreciation, as though we cannot enjoy certain artworks if we don't have a lot of academic and historical knowledge. But if there's one message that I want you to take away it's that anybody can enjoy art and anybody can have a life in the arts - even me! For even I, an Essex transvestite potter, have been let in by the artworld mafia.' Now Grayson Perry is a fully paid-up member of the art establishment, he wants to show that any of us can appreciate art (after all, there is a reason he's called this book 'Playing to the Gallery' and not 'Sucking up to an Academic Elite'.) Based on his hugely popular Reith Lectures and full of words and pictures, this funny, personal journey through the art world answers the basic questions that might occur to us in an art gallery but seem too embarrassing to ask. Questions such as: What is 'good' or 'bad' art - and does it even matter? Is there any way to test if something is art, other than a large group of people standing around looking at it? Is art still capable of shocking us or have we seen it all before? Can you be a 'lovable character' and a serious artist - what is a serious artist anyway? And what happens if you place a piece of art in a rubbish dump?

'Gorgeous and funny! Like a labrador doing stand-up' - Noel Fielding 'A horrible, hilarious little book' - The Times 'Wonderfully offensive... Wonderfully vicious' - The Huffington Post The brainchild of a late night and one too many drinks, Hate Mail began with self-styled ‘Master of Pens’, Mr. Bingo, sending a single tweet off into the pipes of the internet. It read: ‘I will send a postcard with an offensive message on to the first person who replies to this’. Then, the replies came in. Over 1000 abusive postcards later, Mr. Bingo has become the world’s hate mailist par excellence, verbally and visually abusing people the world over, all eager to receive their own bespoke piece of personalised spite. Hilariously irreverent and insidiously inspired, Hate Mail: The Definitive Collection is the ultimate celebration of Mr. Bingo’s Hate Mail project. Previously available only via a Kickstarter subscription, this bumper edition of ALL NEW postcards is a must-have for all Hate Mail devotees.

This remarkable collection of postcards features beautiful depictions of the Buddha by master Himalayan artist Romio Shrestha in Tibetan-style thangkas, or spiritual paintings, offering visual manifestations of the divine. Produced by Shrestha and his team of artisan monks, Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery Postcard Book depicts the life of the deity in eloquent detail and renders postmodern interpretations of an age-old Tibetan artistic tradition in which images are painstakingly created using malachite, lapis, and marigolds, and painted at times with three hairs of a cat's tail. Gathered from Romio Shrestha's best-selling Buddhas of the Celestial Gallery, these exquisite portrayals of the celestial spheres, known as mandalas, invite viewers to meditate on the Buddha's message of love, completion, and connectedness.

Want presents 100 postcards of beggars belonging to the legendary art dealer John Kasmin. A pivotal figure in postwar British culture whose gallery showed the likes of Frank Stella and David Hockney, Kasmin has built a collection of predominantly nineteenth-century postcards to rival the impressive holdings of such collectors as Anthony dOffay and Tom Phillips. Beggars are one of the most evocative of the many subjects that feature in Kasmins eclectic collection, and the selection of photographic postcards in this book reflects the arresting imagery and engaging although often disturbing social narratives that first attracted him to the mendicant motif. In a series of short commentaries Kasmin articulates that attraction, going behind each of the postcards to establish their origins and describe their appeal.
