Item description for Jake And Dinos Chapman by Eckhard Schneider, Jake Chapman, James Hall & Rudolf Sagmeister...
Talk about sibling ribaldry. Self-professed enfants terribles and brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman enrage some with their art and reduce others to laughter, but no one is neutral about these British provocateurs. The series documented here, including the Sex and Death sculptures and an installation created for this exhibition, present the bad boys at their most scabrous--and beautifully printed. In a counterintuitive titling, Sex shows decomposing bodies swarming with flies and maggots; Deathdepicts blow-up sex dolls engaging in lewd acts. Seriousness of purpose, however, underlies the gut-punching shock, and essays here, as well as drawings and plans never seen before, illuminate the artists' work process. The dolls, for example, are cast in bronze and painted to resemble their original plastic, thus bringing a stolid permanence to a flimsy contemporary commodity.

small book Jan 22, 2007
For the price of $36.50 or whatever it is, it isn't much of a book. I had a gift certificate so it was painless for me. I do like the Chapman bros. and enjoyed reading the book. It does give you some insight into what they're all about and the photos are well done and nicely printed. I would like the book to have been bigger, it's only 5 3/4" by 7 1/2". It's in English and German and had they printed seperate versions I think they could have done a better job.
