JAKE & DINOS CHAPMAN: BEDTIME TALES FOR SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
Category: Contemporary art monographs
In their new book 'Bedtime Tales for Sleepless Nights', Jake and Dinos Chapman re-imagine the Victorian morality tale.While their immorality tales are wrought from the innocent language of the children's colouring book, the messages they sagely pass on to our younger folk are far from the saccharine-coated yarns familiar to the genre. The scenes these tales depict are vivid and troubling, and may have dramatic consequences for the nocturnal serenity of the reader's children. These coloured etchings and stories have been made by the artists specifically for this project and are reproduced exclusively in this book.
