2008 320 x 230 x 70 mm (13 x 9 x 3 inches) 648pp total Softbacks within slipcase Texts by Michael Bracewell, Gordon Burn and Michael Macaulay Published by Sotheby's
Signed by the artist and with a small Hirst / Hirst logo drawing. Marking the entire collection of works exhibited and auctioned at Sotheby’s, London in September 2008, this remarkable tripartite catalogue publishes all 287 lots in full colour, with accompanying text by Michael Bracewell and an interview between Hirst and Gordon Burn.
Separate from the three catalogues are two slimmer publications devoted to The Kingdom, with an essay by Michael Macaulay, and The Golden Calf, introduced by Gordon Burn. Each provides an unique insight into the conception and production of the works, placing them within a broader biblical and art historical context.
