The Beautiful Afterlife (Signed Limited Edition).

Zurich: Bruno Bischofberger, 1997. First Edition. Quarto. Number of 265 of 1000 numbered copies; SIGNED by Hirst. A catalogue of several hundred violently extinguished cigarette butts, shot one to a page, dead center. Though repetitive, the sequence of images is oddly fascinating. After so much hypnotic dullness, three images which appear at unexpected intervals (a box of matches, a bit of crumpled foil packaging, and a butane lighter) deliver a far greater jolt than such mundane objects have any right to do. This artist's book, Hirst's most successful, is a direct homage to Andy Warhol's 1968 Stockholm Catalogue. The dimensions are nearly identical, and the cover image of bright and garish funeral flowers mimics Warhol's dayglo flower paintings on the Stockholm Catalogue. Little bumps at the spine ends, else near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers.
