From the pair behind the enduring bestseller A History of Pictures: messages from Normandy under Covid lockdown.

At age eighty, David Hockney left city life behind for the first time to settle down in a studio in the lush natural countryside of Normandy in northern France. This life choice was soon followed by the once-in-a-century Covid-19 pandemic, and over days spent in isolation amid the serenity of nature, Hockney found himself contemplating the Bible and the great masters of philosophy, literature, music, and art past and present from around the globe.

Spring Cannot Be Cancelled brings together those ruminations in the form of letters and social-media exchanges between Hockney and his longtime friend and collaborator, the art critic Martin Gayford. Enriched also by artwork by Hockney and others, the book offers us an exciting opportunity to share in Hockney’s sensibilities, profound contemplation, and inquisitive spirit and—through it all—ponder the eternal question of how we each should live.

The original edition of this book was published in the United Kingdom in 2021 by Thames & Hudson Limited.
The Japanese edition is available for purchase only within Japan.
