In this SUMO edition, David Hockney takes stock of more than 60 years of work; from his teenage days at the Bradford School of Art, through his breakthrough in 1960s Swinging London, life by Los Angeles pools in the 1970s, up to his recent extensive series of portraits, iPad drawings, and Yorkshire landscapes.

Through Hockney’s restless interrogation of perception and representation, the reader witnesses the mellow sheen of light on a muddy Yorkshire puddle, the ochre enormities of A Bigger Grand Canyon, the rustic majesty of Bigger Trees near Warter, and, of course, A Bigger Splash, with the exquisite sparkle of a turquoise pool beneath an iridescent Californian sky. As well as the artist's most celebrated paintings, the book includes Hockney's drawings, photo-composites, multi-perspective collages and stage designs, each a panoply of looking and showing in different styles and media.

Created in collaboration with the artist, the book includes over 450 works, as well as an accompanying booklet contextualising Hockney's work. David Hockney: A Bigger Book is presented on a bookstand designed by Marc Newson.
