With three-colour foil blocked cover and real metallic gold printed throughout, the catalogue also contains a foldout detail of the work In the Name of the Father. All text appears in both English and Spanish and there are two covers available a Spanish and an English version with identical interiors. This book is a must have for everyone interested in Hirsts work.
