Klein, Sheri. Art and Laughter. London: I. B. Tauris, 2007.

Back cover: "This is the first book to take seriously (though not too seriously) the surprisingly neglected role of humour in art."

Terribly written. Mostly descriptive. Author points out her favourite works with regard to each artist. Idiotic and bluntly self-contradictory statements flung together. Poorly researched.

Sample sentence: "The fact that they are colour photographs makes them seductive like candy."
