"We Go To The Gallery is the first in a series of 'Harlequin Ladybird' books designed to make scary subjects approachable for the under 5s. Described in bold colors and written in clear, simple English, each book will drag families in to the darkest recesses of their collective unconscious, for their broader cultural amusement." Penguin were not amused by this parody of their Ladybird imprint for children and threatened legal action. As a result, reprints of this book, and those that followed it, appeared under the Dung Beetle imprint which is much more appropriate. A work of art that satirises contemporary art. Most copies of the first, limited edition are numbered and signed in a box on the first page. This copy has an empty, blank box. 'The canvas is blank. Jane is blank.'.
