An illustrated record of the Paper Pools series of artworks created by Hockney in 1978. The twenty-nine Paper Pool works were made using the paper pulp process, a mix of printmaking and painting, and a new medium for the artist. The images focus on the play of water and light, whilst also recognising the Californian sunshine that Hockney sought. Reproductions of the twenty-nine works are accompanied by preparatory line drawings, polaroids and a text 'Making Paper Pools' by the artist.
