Published on an astonishing and highly immersive scale, David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Book’ radiates the artist’s vibrancy as a colourist and his extraordinary depictions of the world as we have never seen before. A 60-year retrospective of Hockney’s work compacted within high quality pages, major paintings are accompanied by his drawings, photo-composites, multi-perspective collages, stage designs, video works, and iPad drawings; a panoply illustrated through a chronology of more than 600 pages.

"I don’t tend to live in the past. Working on this book, I see quite how much I’ve done.”

David Hockney


Hockney collaborated closely through all production stages and conceived of this book as a purely visual survey of more than 450 works prefaced by a handwritten programmatic statement. The vast volume is as much his own personal review as it is a definitive record for art lovers all over the world. Presented on a Mark Newson bookstand, this sumptuous portfolio contextualises the artist’s oeuvre in a mesmerising format.
