I recently had an e-mail from Erik Arnesen (writing on behalf of the DavidHockney Studio/Website and Online Shop). It contains updated information about how to get hold of the David Hockney Sketchbooks as a DVD. I'm reproducing it in full below as it provides all the information you need.
I've also added a link to the Hockney Store below - and for those who are interested in my previous posts about Hockney these are listed below as well. Note the saga of the Hockney sketchbook DVD has now been running for nearly a year - but we have a result!In checking google for our website status in certain search fields, I came upon your blog page link dated 8 Dec 06 re: the 15 Sketchbooks.Since your post we have added a link to the site that allows direct ordering of the DVD. The main site link is: http://hockneypictures.com/that will take you to the site and you will see the "shop" button - it is an online transaction link which can be found directly at: http://www.hockneystore.com/
I am glad I found your blog page and perhaps you can forward the info that the DVD's are available from the Hockney site - we did press sufficient numbers. Thanks for the alert on the NPG and LACMA - we'll contact them as well...
All the best,
for the DavidHockney Studio/Website and Online Shop
Afterthought - I shall now be very tempted to check out the NPG shop to see if they appear!
