Speaking of David Hockney, in Paris, here are a few of the 40 pages of fantastic photo collages, paintings, drawings, and writing he contributed to French Vogue for the Dec 1985-Jan 86 issue.
I bought this on the newsstand when I was going to college in Paris. I've always loved the desk photo, mostly because of the Pistilli Roman-typefaced book and the Lubalin Graph-typefaced Dog Biscuits, but looking at it now with our book just being published,  I think what a cool project it would be to make a desk like that: cubist and fragmented, that looks like a Google street-view of a desk, if the Google car were the sizeof a Corgi toy.  (Mr. Hockney, let's make some furniture!) (...and Corgi, make the Google Camera Car!)

Also, check out our friend J.B. Taylor's post "When David Met Celia", which was the catalyst for these Hockney posts.
... and that's Hockney's cubist portrait of Celia Birtwell on the cover.
