I have just finished reading one of the most interesting and annoying books I have ever read! And the bloody thing is missing the last 32 pages. Instead it has the first 32 pages, placed in the back of the book. Just as they were getting into the investigation, IT STOPS!!!

The book is The Fakes Progress: the story of a master faker. And is the story of Tom Keating, a Cockney artist with a taste for the irreverent. I must say though, it is a fascinating book and I have really enjoyed reading about his struggles and the way in which he got it back on the idiots that sold his fakes.

It really begs the question of is a faker truly an artist or a fraud. I would be interested to know how much is written and available about this shonky area of art. I intend to pay a visit to my local arts college to have a look in their library to see what they do have on the shelves and whether or not they encourage they students to study the master fakers.

until then,
