“It’s like a forensic manual on diseases of the penis! ..and that black, the black! THE BLACK!!”, Damien Hirst.

‘Penetralia is an eccentric and also melancholy publication that lies in one’s hands both lightly and heavily, it is a book between medieval love poetry, neo-Pre-Raphaelite enthusiasm and Arts & Crafts cult, fitted out with dark imagery, framed by absurd artist portraits and produced with totally captivating printing techniques’, Spike Art Quarterly.
