Art lovers take note! A pioneer of the early pop art movement is releasing a must-have sumo-sized visual book.

Taschen is set to launch a new arts book titled Hockney. The large tome is a showcase of the stunning works by British artist David Hockney, renowned for promoting the pop art movement in the '60s. With an oeuvre from over six decades, the book also charts Hockney's artistic evolution from his time as a young man in London and Los Angeles up until the modern age when he dabbled in drawings on the iPad. "I don't tend to live in the past," said Hockney. "Working on this book, I see quite how much I have done."
