For the Love of God: The Making of The Diamond Skull SIGNED EDITION. Signed by Hirst to the title page. A stunning hardback edition of the highest quality. A true work of art. This book is a creative guide to the making of arguably the most extraordinary art object to be made in the 21st century. Published to accompany the 2007 exhibition ‘Damien Hirst: Beyond Belief’ at White Cube, it gives a fascinating pictorial insight into how Hirst’s diamond skull piece, ‘For the Love of God’ was conceived and produced. Illustrated with candid behind-the-scenes photographs by Johnnie Shand Kydd, the book includes a number of preparatory drawings by Damien Hirst and a fold out image of the diamond skull. Accompanying this is an essay by the art historian Rudi Fuchs, who writes “The skull is out of this world, celestial almost. I tend to see it as a glorious intense victory over death”. A number of leading experts in the fields of archaeology and dentistry have also contributed detailed studies on the diamond skull, including analyses of its age and ancestry.
