David Hockney Sumo

This Taschen SUMO publication of A Bigger Book is a majestic visual survey of David Hockney RA’s career from 1953 to 2016.

Never before has Hockney’s oeuvre been published in such scope, with such investment from the artist, and on such an astonishing, immersive scale.

Limited to 9000 collector's edition copies, each copy has been individually signed by David Hockney. It features 498 full-colour pages with 13 fold-outs and comes with an adjustable bookstand in bold primary colours designed by Marc Newson and an illustrated 680-page chronology book.
