My Big One is the new book from award winning photographer David Stewart. A showcase for Stewart's work, My Big One is also a uniquely designed art object. The book contains 41 large-format colour images from both Stewart's personal and commercial portfolios from the last nine years. Among the high profile campaigns featured are Heals, Marmite, American Express, Quality Street, Pizza Express and Malvern Water. Stewart's personal work includes the series Fogeys, his ongoing project Relations and images that accompanied his Bafta-nominated short film Cabbage. All Stewart's images are constructed with great attention to detail and highlight his slightly surreal take on life.

Created using the highest design and production values the book is available in a signed, limited edition of 60. A wooden slip case, lined in magenta felt, has been hand-made to resemble the slats of the cockerel's coop. Additional design features include a contents index in the form of a 64 centimetre ruler and coloured ribbon bookmarks that hint at a prize-winning rosette. The book's punning title and design not only reflect the underlying humour in Stewart's work but its size also allows the viewer to see his striking images to their full effect.
