A Bigger Book is a majestic visual survey of David Hockney’s art by Taschen. In it, Hockney takes stock of more than 60 years of work.
I love Taschen books, anytime I get a chance to buy them at second-hand bookstores, I will not hesitate to buy them. However, when big volumes such as Marvel Comics Library Avengers Vol. 1 come into circulation, I will fork out the big bucks. The Avengers is another book that will not disappoint. Taschen does it better than the original comic book publishing houses. This volume collects the first 20 issues of the Avengers. Better get some Charles Atlas muscles to read this big volume.
