A Stuckist on Stuckism: a comprehensive essay by Co-founder Charles Thomson, covering the origin of Stuckism, its development since its foundation in 1999, 'ex Stuckists' (Billy Childish, Tracey Emin and Stella Vine), historical context of Medieval, Renaissance and Modern art, and the ethos of Stuckist painting.

The first Stuckist texts are the ideas put forward in the Manifestos - particularly The Stuckists (1999) and Remodernism (2000). Also recommended are Handy Hints (2000), which includes amplifications and leftovers from the other two. Texts co-written by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson.

More ideas can be found in Essays, Interviews with artists (including some audio links), and Stuckist Critique of Damien Hirst (link to C4 website). Essays include a comparison of three contemporary 'schools' - Modern Traditional, Conceptual and Stuckist - in Daubs and Daubers, and Courtauld graduate Kirstie Gregory's A Study of Stuckism.
