We like BIG books...

We like BIG books...


So we are ecstatic to announce the arrival in-store of David Hockney. A Bigger Book!


And boy is it a big book!


So big in fact that it comes with it’s own custom made stand by designer Marc Newson.


The book is one of a limited edition run of 9000, each signed by the artist himself and we are so excited to be the ONLY shop in Ireland currently stocking it!





Measuring 50x70 cm, this is the largest book ever produced by Taschen. The size lends itself wonderfully to Hockney’s bold style and vibrant colours. Come and visit us and take a look at our display copy on the shop floor (the real deal is kept under lock and key!) Retailing at €2550.00 for the book and stand, this is a great opportunity to obtain an impressive, statement piece for your home.





The director of The National Gallery of Ireland, Sean Rainbird peruses our shop copy of Hockney.A Bigger Book with Ele von Monshaw, a member of the Gallery's Conservation team.



More information on this mammoth publication is available here.






If your budget cannot stretch that far, we also have a range of Hockney books for the cash-conscious art lovers out there. From conversations with the artist to an entire book of portraits of Hockney’s darling daschunds, we have something to meet all your Hockney needs. Even if you don’t like books, we have David Sockneys ready to become your new favourite socks or star in your upcoming sock puppet show!








Last week we told you about the gorgeous, limited edition print (only 1000 copies!) of Joe Caslin’s new work Finding Power. This week we are delighted to announce that the print will be available to buy online (HERE) for a limited time. Everyone in the Gallery has bought theirs, so buy yours now to avoid disappointment!




The winner of our facebook competition for a limited edition Joe Caslin Print of their very own is...


(drum roll)


Eoghan Tiernan!


Congratulations Eoghan! We'll be in touch!


Book of the Week #18






This week’s book of the week is The Unfinished Palazzo by Judith Mackrell. This book takes the stories of three independent, stylish and eccentric women as the focal point to tell the story of one of Venice’s most beloved building “il palazzo non finite”. Luisa Casati, Doris Castlerosse and Peggy Guggenheim all left their own unique mark on their unconventional Venice home and created one of the world’s most beloved museums in the process. This book is a great read, thoroughly researched, titillating in its gossip and fabulous in its form!




Each week you'll find a new book of the week beside the till, alongside the previous week's title, both of which will be on sale with 10% off for their fortnight in the spotlight.



Last week’s book of the week was The 500 Hidden Secrets of Dublin.



See you next week!
