A Bigger Book is David Hockney RA's "definitive visual autobiography". This epic technicolour tome is a Tashen SUMO signed limited art edition of 250 copies, with an exclusive inkjet print of a Hockney still-life. A document of Hockney's entire career, from 1953 to 2016, and his 60 years of 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.” This product has been discontinued.
