David Hockney Sumo
A Bigger Book is David Hockney RA's "definitive visual autobiography". This epic technicolour tome is a Tashen SUMO signed limited edition of 9000 documenting Hockney's entire career, from 1953 to 2016.
He has spent over 60 years questioning "How do we see and how do I depict that?" to iconic effect. “I don’t tend to live in the past,” he comments, “Working on this book, I see quite how much I have done... I know the book is going to last 100 years, at least.”
