The virtuosic works of Chris Orr MBE RA revel in the surreal comedy of human life, juxtaposing the everyday and the extraordinary with playful humour and an acute eye for detail.

Illustrated with works from his whole career, and with a foreword by long-time friend and collector Michael Palin, this book offers an insightful portrait of one of Britians most influential artist printmakers. Michael Palin - "One thing this book reminds me most forcibly is how prolific Chris has been. His appetite for looking at the world seems never to have diminished. There's always something new to be looked at and experienced and digested and made sense of."

The hand-coloured engraving is 25.5 x 25.5cm on Somerset paper and is signed and numbered by the artist. Hardback cover, 260 pages, 175 illustrations, 26 x 27cms.
