When David Hockney discovered the iPhone as an artistic medium, it opened up entirely new possibilities for his art. He made his first digital drawings in the spring of 2009, describing the morning landscape in broad lines and dazzling colors directly on a screen that offered subtle hues as unmixed expressions of pure light. In 2010, Hockney began working with an iPad, and the larger screen expanded his artistic repertoire and enabled an even more complex interplay of color, light and line.

Each image in this book captures a fleeting moment seen through a window in Hockney's Yorkshire home: from a vivid sunrise and lilac morning sky to peaceful nocturnal impressions or the sudden arrival of spring. Fascinating details reveal droplets on window panes, distant lights at night, reflections on vases or an abundance of varied vegetation in the windowsill. In 120 drawings made between 2009 and 2012, selected and arranged by the artist himself, we experience the passage of time through the eyes of David Hockney.

This artist's book, which first appeared in an exclusive signed edition, now returns in an unlimited edition, whose still generous XL size presents Hockney's impressions in brilliant resolution. So this is the perfect opportunity to take the Times reviewer's advice about this book: "If you want to get a bouquet from David Hockney, this is your chance."
