None of these made the book: some came from Bigg T, some from PD’s scrapbook, the clock is a rare item, the hotel from the Step On video, and the image above is Jeremy Deller’s 1994 artwork, The Search For Bez. Another of the world’s most famous artists, Julian Schnabel, has also been inspired by the Mondays.  See some of his 2011 paintings below. Schnabel explained: “I love Happy Mondays… I’ve painted a lot of paintings to their records.”
