London: Thames & Hudson. 1980.

Inscribed on title-page by David Hockney, "for Lisa happy birthday from David X X X. June 4th 1981". 4to. (238x 275mm). 100pp. 122 illustrations, 87 in colour. Blue cloth, Thames and Hudson logo stamped in black on upper cover, black lettering on spine. Some fading to upper cover and spine and slight rubbing to the corners. Very good dust jacket (protected by a plastic wrapper) with only minor creasing to top of the spine and two closed tears to the corners. Internally this is a near fine copy. An excellent example of this important work in Hockney's career, a moment at which he discovered a new technique, described as a mixture of paper-making, print-making and painting, and a new subject matter - the shimmering sun drenched swimming pools of America.
