Back in October of 2014, Damien Hirst took to London’s Paul Stolper Gallery to open “Schizophrenogenesis,” a pill-centric display that looked at humanity’s relationship with the pharmaceutical industry. Now, more than two years later, Hirst is re-teaming with the gallery to introduce a retrospective monograph highlighting the exhibition.

Simply dubbed Schizophrenogenesis, the hardcover tome measures 295 x 220 x 40 mm and features 64 pages along with 10 gatefolds as it highlights each and every work from the series, including The Cure — 30 silkscreen prints that each depict a two-toned pill against a vibrant candy-colored backdrop. As Hirst himself explained at the time of the exhibition, “Pills are a brilliant little form, better than any minimalist art. They’re all designed to make you buy them… they come out of flowers, plants, things from the ground, and they make you feel good, you know, to just have a pill, to feel beauty.”

Hirst fans can pick up a copy of Schizophrenogenesis via Other Criteria now. While the standard edition retails for £45 GBP (approximately $56 USD), there’s also a signed and numbered edition that’s limited to just 400 foil blister-sealed copies for £250 GBP (approximately $311 USD).
