First edition, first printing. The Souls ran as a solo exhibition at the Paul Stolper gallery from 7 October to 13 November 2010. Hirst took four butterfly designs and reproduced each in 80 different colourways, with the present book reproducing these artworks and the colours used. The lavish illustrations offer an excellent example of how the deluxe art book can serve as a highspot of contemporary book design and fine printing. Butterflies have been a recurring theme in Hirst's artwork, including in his Kaleidoscope and monochrome paintings. Hirst explained his use of butterflies as a means of locating "universal triggers: everyone's frightened of glass, everyone's frightened of sharks, everyone loves butterflies".
