THE BOOK

Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK by Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane (2005)
'If Pop Art is about liking things, as Andy Warhol said, then folk art is about loving things' Jeremy Deller.

This is a book about the creative life of Britain and the first attempt since the Festival of Britain to document the popular and folk art of the present day.

Organised by Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane, Folk Archive: Contemporary Popular Art from the UK, presents a personal selection of
objects and actions, containing elements of ambition, humour, pathos and resistance, which
present us with invaluable evidence of life in Britain today.
