Damien Hirst's autobiography full of ironic spelling errors

To the equal delight of the art world and the frustration of most rationale print lovers, the notorious Turner Prize winner proposes to redefine what we a perceive to be a well written book. Changes in font size, incomplete sentences and a cover-face smeared in formaldehyde, are among some of the more 'challenging' aspects of Hirst's book; which one publisher described as: 'Being beaten around the head with a diamond encrusted skull'.

Mr Hirst promises to draw no distinction between the words there/their/they're. A spokesman explained that: 'When Damien dangles participles, swaps commas for apostrophes and uses the c-word, he's saying something about the state of modern Britain. He's a conceptual writer nor an actual speller per se. The artist intends to deconstruct the concept of a book by offering a series of papyrus sheets, stapled together in manuscript form, entitled 'Wankstain: In perpetual Motion'. It's all about the affect… effect... affect? Impact of the art'.
