‘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 creative life in Britain today.

The Val D’Oro restaurant Glasgow has been decorated over many years by the proprietor Luigi Corvi with framed black and white copies and ephemera documenting a history of Glasgow and the generations of the Corvi family who have run the establishment. 
 
The book is a vehicle to record and disseminate an original human local story as well as to effect and illustrate the fluid nature of cultural significance and, in an analogue historic form, mirror questions around who has ownership of culture and history more commonly associated recently with digitally powered networks and communications.
