Back in 2008, Damien Hirst created a series of 150 paintings, each of which took its name from a psalm from the Old Testament and utilized butterfly wings and household gloss paint on canvas. Now, the colorful and kaleidoscopic Gothic stained glass window- and Buddhist mandala-inspired pieces are collected in a comprehensive tome aptly entitled The Complete Psalm Paintings. Measuring 27 x 19.8 cm, the hardback book boasts a die-cut cover, and 324 pages and essays from writers Michael Bracewell and Amie Corry. The comprehensive survey — addressing enduring Hirst themes like beauty, art, belief, live and death — is now available for £75 GBP (approximately $118 USD) from Other Criteria.
