    "Hockney's Alphabet" (1991) is not a single artwork but a collaborative published book featuring 26 contributions.

    Created in 1991, "Hockney's Alphabet" served a dual purpose. It showcased David Hockney's distinctive artistic style applied to the alphabet and raised funds for the AIDS Crisis Trust.

    Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a full-page, colorful lithograph created by Hockney. The illustrations encompass a variety of themes and styles, reflecting Hockney's diverse artistic interests.

    Accompanying each lithograph is a written contribution from a distinguished writer or poet. Edited by Stephen Spender, the list of contributors includes notable figures like Doris Lessing, W. H. Auden (whose contribution is posthumous), and Seamus Heaney. These pairings create a unique dialogue between visual art and literature.

    "Hockney's Alphabet" stands as a testament to both Hockney's artistic talent and his commitment to social causes. The vibrantly colored lithographs showcase his signature style, while the inclusion of renowned writers adds a layer of literary merit. The book serves as a valuable example of collaborative art created for a charitable cause.
