Talk Art: Everything You Wanted to Know About Contemporary Art But Were Afraid to Ask

Talk Art, the book, is a beautiful and accessible celebration of contemporary art and a guidebook to navigating and engaging with the art world. Informal and jargon-free, this book proves that art really is for everyone. 

The book features highlights from interviews with a diverse array of people: Tracey Emin, Rose Wylie, Helen Cammock, Jordan Casteel, Edward Enninful, Jerry Saltz, Elton John, Billy Porter, Grayson Perry, Michael Stipe, Lena Dunham, Rose McGowan, Ian McKellen, Deborah Frances-White, David Shrigley, Toyin Ojih Odutola and Michael Craig-Martin, among others.

Based on a must-listen cultural podcast in both the UK and the US, authors Russell Tovey and Robert Diament have opened the doors to the art world and have welcomed people of all ages and backgrounds into the conversation. 

 "All we wanted to do was make art accessible, non-academic, non-elitist, gossipy and fun" (Russell Tovey, quoted in the New York Times
