TASCHEN is trail-blazing. It has revolutionised the illustrated-book market: in fact, Id say it has changed the face of publishing. The Bookseller, London

A TASCHEN trove for collectors


Dear Bookworms, Here it is! The opus magnum of our collectors edition catalogue, covering over two decades of the limited publications that have helped to make TASCHEN what it is today. From our rst collectors edition Baselitz in 1991 to our exclusive collaboration with National Geographic this fall, each and every one of these books has been a unique and inspiring adventure. I hope that you will enjoy the presentation of these particularly special titles, and look forward to continuing the journey. Thank you, as ever, for your ongoing support. Peace Benedikt Taschen

UT O D L SO
It is what it is, but we do on rare occasions have copies in mint condition returned, so do check with your nearest TASCHEN store just in case. A few words of TASCHEN wisdom Please treat your book kindly. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and humidity and do not display open books for an extended period of time. The condition of a book is integral to its value and prices for mint copies can far exceed those for copies in good or fair condition. Books with vintage TASCHEN casing can also achieve a signicantly higher sum at resale, so do keep the original presentation packaging. If you have any questions about your TASCHEN book collection, please contact us at collectors@taschen.com Design by Andy Disl & Anna-Tina Kessler Text by Alison Castle Directed and produced by Benedikt Taschen 2013 TASCHEN Printed in Italy

This title is still available, but is most likely not in stock anymore in each TASCHEN store. We expect the title to be sold out in the near future. APs Artists proof copies are made for artists, friends, contributors and in-house TASCHEN use. They are generally not for sale but exceptions can be made for a variety of reasons. Prices All prices correct as of November 2013, and subject to change without prior notice. We list prices according to the last copy sold by TASCHEN, which might be less than current market value.

...you will own a piece of art history.

 TASCHEN books are almost designed to be collectible. Its very common for a TASCHEN book to gain value almost instantly.

Since the TASCHEN adventure began in 1980, it has been our goal to make the greatest books in the world. Whatever the subject and whatever the retail pricefrom $10 to $10,000we strive to produce, design, and package each of our books beautifully, with a great deal of care and attention to detail. The collectors who buy a limited edition book early on will have, in addition to a rare and exceptional book, the added benet of seeing their asset appreciate; our collectors editions have been known to have their value multiply, in some cases reaching ten times their original price.

Howard L. Bingham has lived in Los Angeles since the age of four. He has worked and studied there, and most importantly perhaps, met his lifelong friend Muhammad Ali there, in 1962. He had no idea who the emerging ghter was when he was assigned by the Los Angeles Sentinel to photograph the young Cassius Clay (Ali still reminds him of this oversight 40 years later). Since then, Bingham has become a highly-respected portrait and reportage photographer, honored with awards in the United States and with his work gracing magazines like Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, Time and People. His work has been exhibited internationally, but he remains best known for his extraordinary body of work capturing, at close quarters, the many faces of Muhammad Ali. The

most powerful expression of this came in his acclaimed 1993 book, Muhammad Ali: A Thirty-Year Journey. He is Principal Photographer and Editorial Consultant of GOAT. We are proud to have Jeff Koons create his own tribute to Muhammad Ali as part of GOAT. Koons is one of the most inuential living artists and an icon of the modern art world. He started his meteoric rise in the 1980s as part of a generation of artists who explored the meaning of art in a media-saturated age. With his stated intention to communicate with the masses, Koons draws from the visual language of mass media and advertising, and the entertainment industry. Testing the limits between high and low culture, his sculptural menagerie includes Plexiglas-encased Hoover vacuum cleaners,

basketballs oating in glass aquariums, and porcelain homages to Michael Jackson and the Pink Panther. Koons frequent goal is to present the common object as it is. When Im working with an object I always have to give the greatest consideration not to alter the object physically or even psychologically. I try to reveal a certain aspect of the objects personality. Im placing the object in a context or material which will enhance a specic personality trait within the object. The soul of the object must be maintained Koons has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitionsat the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Neue National Galerie, Berlin, Serpentine Gallery, London, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Four photos by Howard L. Bingham that reect the facets of Alis personality, as seen by his closest friend: Cassius Clay in Louisville, 1962; Sitting on a Million Dollars, 1963; Ali vs Liston II, 1965; Muhammad Ali, 1978. These 50 cm x 50 cm

(20 x 20 in.) gallery-quality silver gelatin prints are individually signed by the photographer and Muhammad Ali, and come with the rst 1,000 copies of GOAT, the Champs Edition.

Art Edition limited to 500 copies

The Pedro Almodvar Archives Art Edition Edited by Paul Duncan with Brbara Peir Hardcover and lm strip of Volver 41.1 x 30 cm (16.2 x 11.8 in.), 410 pages

 Cinema is an irrational passion. All my cinema is impregnated with cinema. The experience of seeing a film forms part of my biography. Pedro Almodvar

Un lm de Almodvar: whether appearing in his stylish opening credits or on the suggestive poster that invariably accompanies each of his lms, this announcement triggers a range of expectations. Sexy and subversive, colorful and controversial, passionate and provocative, Pedro Almodvars world is unlike any other directors. Thanks to his remarkably cohesive and consistent uvre, the Manchegan maverick has become a reliable brand, his name a byword for the visual opulence, experimentation, and eroticism of post-Franco Spanish cinema. Almodvar found fame with selfpenned, gender-bending plots depicting the often comic misfortunes of junkies, nuns, housewives, whores, transvestites, and transsexuals. Praised by critics, championed by fellow lm-makers, adored by

actors, and adorned with international awards, he is the most successful Spanish lm-maker since Luis Buuel, with lms such as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Volver, and his second to last lm The Skin I Live In. A self-taught auteur, Almodvar draws on inuences as diverse as Douglas Sirk, Frank Tashlin, Andy Warhol, and John Waters. His feature lms borrow liberally from, and frequently invert, traditional genres of classic American cinemaincluding lm noir, melodrama, and screwball comedy. Yet they remain unmistakably Iberian, rooted predominantly in the directors beloved Madrid, exploring Spanish myths and modernity to the rhythms of boleroladen soundtracks. Most recently, the enfant terrible of the 1980s arthouse scene

has matured into the Academy Awardwinning director of All About My Mother, a lm universally acknowledged for its emotional resonance, sophistication and craftsmanship. Almodvars distinctive, once marginalized world has nally entered the mainstream. For this unprecedented monograph, Pedro Almodvar has given TASCHEN complete access to his archives, including neverbefore-published images, such as personal photos he took during lming. Almodvar invitedprominent Spanish authors to write introductions to each of his lms, selected many of his own texts to accompany this visual odyssey through his complete works, as well as writing photo captions and new texts to make this Almodvars most complete self-examination of his uvre.

The complete works of Pedro Almodvar: a personal journey with one of contemporary cinemas most esteemed lm artists, made with Almodvars collaboration and with full access to his archives

Araki by Araki

Groe Kunst, ein Kunstband, ein Kunstwerk:...eine verlegerische Grotat, und das in jeder Hinsicht. Architektur & Wohnen, Hamburg

Araki by Araki is an enormous and unique book with a print run of only 2,500 copies. The subject is Japanese photographer Araki, a man who talks about life through photographs. His powerful uvre, decades worth of images, has been pared down to about 1,000 photographs which tell the story of Araki and comprise the ultimate

retrospective collection of his work. Known best for his intimate, snapshot-style images of women often tied up with ropes (kinbaku, Japanese rope-tying art) and of colorful, sensual owers, Araki is an artist who reacts strongly to his emotions and uses photography to experience them more fully. Obsessed with women, Araki seeks to come

closer to them through photography, using ropes like an embrace and the click of the shutter like a kiss. His work is at once shocking and mysteriourly tender; a deeply personal artist, Araki is not afraid of his emotions, nor of showing them to the world.

The provocative art of Japanese bondage
Meaning literally, the beauty of tight binding, Kinbaku-bi, the Japanese art of erotic bondage has long fascinated Nobuyoshi Araki, who has made it one of his most important subjects. Hes been called a genius and a poet, and also a misogynist, a pornographer, a monster, but Arakis work transcends simplistic moralistic classications; he has said of his work, There is no conclusion. Its completely open. It doesnt go anywhere. Whether literally or guratively, his bound subjects are certainly immobilized, yet in the most tantalizing ways. This Collectors Edition is limited to 845 copies, each numbered and signed by Nobuyoshi Araki. It consists of three volumes, enticingly hand-bound in the Japanese tradition and packaged in a wooden box, featuring Arakis selection of his favorite bondage photos from over his entire career. 29 x 33 cm (11.4 x 12.9 in.), 600 pages

A Stunning Journey into the World of Peter Beard

Photographer, collector, diarist, and author Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he has kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. He was painted by Francis Bacon, painted on by Salvador Dal, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capote and the Rolling Stones, created books with Jacqueline Onassis and Mick Jaggerall of whom are brought to life, literally and guratively, in his work. As a fashion photographer, he took Vogue stars like Veruschka to Africa and brought new onesmost notably Imanback to the U.S. with him. His love affair with natural history and wildlife, which informs most of his work, began when he was a teenager. He had read the books of Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) and after spending time in Kenya and befriending the author, bought a piece of land near hers. It was the early 1960s and the big game hunters led safaris, with all the colonial elements Beard had read about in Out of Africa characterizing the open life and landscape, but the times were chang-

ing. Beard witnessed the dawn of Kenyas population explosion, which challenged nite resources and stressed animal populationsincluding the starving elephants of Tsavo, dying by the tens of thousands in a wasteland of eaten trees. So he documented what he sawwith diaries, photographs, and collages. He went against the wind in publishing unique and sometimes shocking books of these unsentimental observations. The corpses were laid bare; the facts were carefully written down sometimes in type, often by hand, occasionally with blood. Spilling out over the pages of this massive tome, Peter Beards collages are reproduced as a group for the rst time at the size they have always been meant to be seen, many of them as fold-outs. Hundreds of smaller-scale works and diaries ll the remaining spreadsmagnied to show every detail, from Beards meticulous handwriting and Old-Master-inspired drawings to stones and bones and bits of animals pasted to the page. Available in both Art and Collectors editions, this opulent and beautifully crafted limited editioncomplete with wooden standis a work of art in itself.

The artist: Born in 1938 in New York City, Peter Beard began keeping diaries and taking photographs as an adolescent. After graduating from Yale, he developed a keen interest in Africa; in the early 1960s he worked at Kenyas Tsavo National Park, during which time he photographed and documented the demise of over 35,000 elephants and published his rst book, The End of the Game. His rst show at Blum Helman Gallery came in 1975, and was followed in 1977 by the landmark installation of elephant carcasses, burned diaries, taxidermy, African artifacts, books, and personal memorabilia at New Yorks International Center for Photography. In addition to creating original artwork, Beard has also worked as a fashion photographer and collaborated on projects with Andy Warhol, Andrew Wyeth, Richard Lindner, Terry Southern, Truman Capote, and Francis Bacon. In 1996, shortly after Beard was trampled by an elephant, his rst major retrospective opened at the Centre

National de la Photographie in Paris, France, followed by others in Berlin, London, Toronto, Madrid, Milan, Tokyo, and Vienna. He now lives in New York City, Montauk Point, and Kenya with his wife Nejma and daughter Zara. The editors: Nejma Beard has been Peter Beards agent and the director of the Peter Beard Studio since 2000. Since then she has curated and co-curated shows in Paris, London, Milan, and Los Angeles, and assisted on the publication of Zaras Tales. David Fahey is co-owner of the Fahey/ Klein Gallery, Los Angeles. During his 31-year career in the eld, he has collaborated on over 45 ne art photography books. He is the co-vice president of the Herb Ritts Foundation and serves on the Photography Advisory Council for the J. Paul Getty Museum. The art director: Ruth Ansel is director of the Ansel Design Studio, New York. For 30

years she has been an award-winning art director of Harpers Bazaar, New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, and Vogue, among others. She has designed numerous books including The End of the Game by Peter Beard, The Sixties by Richard Avedon and Doon Arbus, and Women by Annie Leibovitz. The authors: Owen Edwards has written about photography for 30 years, for American Photographer, New York Times Magazine, New York magazine, The Village Voice, Saturday Review, Vogue, Smithsonian magazine, and many other publications. Steven M. L. Aronson, a former book publisher, is a writer and editor. He edited and published Peter Beards book Longing for Darkness and wrote the television special The End of the Game. He is the author of HYPE and the co-author of Savage Grace.

Behind Beatlemania

These photos convey a really happy period for them and for me. It all comes down to music, they were without a doubt the greatest band of the 20th century, and thats why these photographs are so important.
Harry Benson, 2011

In early 1964, Harry Benson was getting on a plane for a foreign assignment in Africa when he got a call from the photo editor of London newspaper The Daily Express. He was now going with The Beatles to Paris to document French Beatlemania and what followed was the biggest (ticket to) ride of his life. Benson was warmly welcomed into The Beatles inner sanctum, resulting in some of the most intimate photographs ever taken of the band, then on the cusp of world domination. In Paris, he took the iconic photograph of the Fab Four having a

pillow ght at the George V Hotel; he shot their groundbreaking rst visit to the United States, the full impact of New York hysteria, their famous appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, the band in Florida, including their surprising encounter with Cassius Clay; as well as on the set of A Hard Days Night. The relationship continued in 1966, including Georges honeymoon in Barbados and their notorious US tour, under the shadow cast by Lennons comment that the Beatles were bigger than Jesus Christ.

Bensons luminous black and white photographs show at close quarters The Beatles composing, performing, encountering their fans, relaxing, and engaging with each other, while trying to cope with their increasingly isolating fame. In addition to hundreds of photographs, many previously unseen, there is an introductory essay by Benson as well as quotes and newspaper clippings from the period.

When Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped the Berlin Reichstag in 1995, this was the completion of a 24 year long artistic process. Five million people came to see the unique work of art. The project book Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin, 19711995 follows these 24 years in the life of the two artists documenting this process. Endless negotiations with deputies, officials and bureaucrats were needed to nally get the permit from the German Bundestag. It was the rst work of art which was debated and voted on by an elected parliament even though it did not even exist yet. Years of technical preparation were needed to allow Christo and Jeanne-Claude to wrap the large 19th century building using 1,076,390 square feet (100,000 square meters) of thick woven polypropylene fabric with an aluminum surface and

9.7 miles (15.6 kilometers) of blue polypropylene rope. Christo and Jeanne-Claude : For a period of two weeks in summer 1995, the richness of the silvery fabric, shaped by the blue ropes, creates a sumptuous ow of vertical folds highlighting the features and proportions of the imposing structure, revealing the essence of the Reichstag. This unique documentary book, designed by Christo himself, tells this story in numerous original documents, photgraphs, drawings, collages and large photo-murals. It shows on 700 pages how a vision was realized, a vision that took the worlds breath away and not just for those 14 days. The photographer: Wolfgang Volz was the project director (with Roland Specker) for the Wrapped Reichstag and has worked

with Christo and Jeanne-Claude as the exclusive photographer of their works since 1971. He was also project director (with Josy Kraft) for Wrapped Trees, and was in charge of The Wall 13,000 Oil Barrels, 1999. His close collaboration with Christo and Jeanne-Claude has resulted in many books and more than 300 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. The author: David Bourdon was an art critic who was closely involved in the innovative Manhattan art world since the early 1960s. Bourdon wrote for many art magazines and was a frequent contributor to Art in America. Among his books were studies of the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Alexander Calder, and Andy Warhol.

In Autumn 1998, after the trees around Fondation Beyeler and in the Berower Park had shed their leaves, Christo and JeanneClaude wrapped 162 treessome up to 25 meters highwith 55,000 m2 of polyester fabric and 23.1 km of rope. For wrapping they used the type of veil that is traditionally used in Japan to protect trees against the winter snow and frost. The effect of the wind on the translucent fabric and the rope created an ever-changing variety of shapes, surfaces, and colors. Many years of research had gone into reaching this stage, at which point Christo and Jeanne-Claude had worked on trees for over 30 years. In 1966, they wrapped a 10-meter high tree in a personal exhibition in the Stedelijk van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven. In the same year they worked on a wrapped trees project for Forest Park in Saint Louis, Missouri, and in 1968 for the Museum of Modern Art in New

York. In 1969 Two Wrapped Trees were exhibited in Sydney. In the same year an ambitious project to wrap 330 trees along the Champs Elyses failed to gain authorisation from the Prefect of Paris. This project in the park of the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, Basel, Switzerland (until January 24, 1999) was thus the largest Wrapped Trees to be realized at that time. This volume traces the conception to the realization via preparatory drawings, collages, and plans as well as photographs of the Wrapped Trees. The artists: Christo & Jeanne-Claude have worked in collaboration since 1961, and lived in New York City since 1964.

February 2005 marked the ephemeral installation of a monumental work of art by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in New York Citys Central Park. First conceived in 1979 and rejected by New York City government in 1981, the project was approved by Mayor Michael Bloombergs administration in 2003. The work of art consisted of 7503 16-foot-high vinyl gates with saffroncolored fabric panels on twenty-three miles of the Parks walkways. Seen from the buildings surrounding the Park, The Gates looked like a saffron owing river, while those walking through them experienced the ambience of a uid golden ceiling. Financed entirely by Christo and JeanneClaude through their C.V.J. Corporation, The Gates were assembled and installed by thousands of paid workers. Completed on February 12, 2005, The Gates remained in place for sixteen days, after which they were removed and the materials recycled. The work of art was free for all visitors, who continued to use Central Park during the

whole process. This historic event provided a memorable and joyous experience for New Yorkers and visitors. This special collectors volume documents the entire project from conception to realization. Designed by Christo and JeanneClaude, with texts by Jonathan Henery and photographs by exclusive photographer Wolfgang Volz, this limited-edition volume is the ultimate book object for fans and collectors who want a lasting and unique souvenir of this remarkable work of art.

The work of the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude transcends borders, resists categorizing, and embraces contradiction. This is the only large-format book that includes all of Christo and Jeanne-Claudes works, from 1958 to spectacular urban and rural temporary works of art such as The

Gates in Central Park, the Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin, and Running Fence in California, as well as the full spectrum of Christos early art works that formed the basis for the ambitious large-scale projects that both artists produced together. Part biography, part critical analysis, part cata-

logue, the book traces both the lives and the works of an artist-couple who established a category all their own: a category somewhere between conceptual art, urban planning, architecture, politics, engineering and art.

Claxtons jazz odyssey


Tracking jazz across the USA in the 60s

Frans Lanting, Bill Claxton, and Julius Shulman celebrate at the Chemosphere House, Hollywood, 1999.

In 1959 and 1960, photographer William Claxton and noted German musicologist Joachim Berendt traveled the United States hot on the trail of jazz music. The result of their collaboration was an amazing collection of photographs and recordings of legendary artists as well as unknown street musicians. The book Jazzlife, the original fruit of their labors, has become a collectors item that is highly treasured among jazz and photography fans. In 2003, TASCHEN began reassembling this important collection of materialalong with many neverbefore-seen color images from those trips. They are brought together in this updated volume, which includes a foreword by Claxton tracing his travels with Berendt and his love affair with jazz music in general. Utilizing the benets of todays digital technology, a restored audio CD from

Joachim Berendts original recordings has been produced and is included in this package. Jazz fans will be delighted to be able to take a jazz-trip through time, both seeing and hearing the music as Claxton and Berendt originally experienced it. The photographer: William Claxton holds a special place in the history of American particularly jazzphotography. Since his early careershooting for LIFE, Paris Match, and Vogue, among other magazines - Claxton worked with and became friends with many Hollywood luminaries and jazz musicians, most notably Steve McQueen and Chet Baker (whom Claxton rst photographed in 1952 when Baker was young and still unknown). Claxton, whose jazz imagery has graced the covers of countless albums and magazine covers for over ve decades, is considered the preeminent pho-

tographer of jazz music. TASCHEN has also published Claxtons Jazz seen and Steve McQueen. The author: Joachim E. Berendt was a founding member of South West German Radio (Sdwestfunk) and produced more than 250 records, including many issued on the MPS-SABA label. In 1953, he rst published The Jazzbuch, which became the most successful history book on jazz worldwide. His collection of records, books and jazz documents became the basis for the Jazzinstitut Darmstadt before he died in an accident in 2000.

 Crumbs personal selection of his most secret fantasies, freshly colored just for TASCHEN

Robert Crumbs Sex Obsessions


Hardcover in slipcase + print, 20.3 x 27.4 cm (8 x 10.8 in.), 258 pages This signed limited edition of 1,000 copies is a work of art in itself, with every part of the bookfront and back covers, spine, and introductory pagescreated for this project by Robert Crumb. Each book also comes with an art print selected by Mr. Crumb: see illustration on opposite page.

$ 1,000 | 750 | 650

They have little to do with the standard procreative urge, Mr. Crumb admits. He has also said he nds nothing more boring than someone elses sexual obsessions, and yet through his long career the worlds most famous underground cartoonist has felt compelled to include his own sex fantasies in his art. He explains it as a compulsive catharsis, while fans call R. Crumbs erotic fantasies the Master at his best. Now Crumb has selected his most intimately revealing comic strips and single page drawings to create a 258 page encyclopedic trip through his sexual psyche. All images were created between

1980 and 2006, and all strips are handcolored for a lush vibrancy never seen in his comic books. In total the book features 14 complete stories, including My Troubles With Women, If I Were a King, A Bitchin Bod and How To Have Fun With a Strong Girl, as well as 60 single page drawings. The artist admits its a little scary to see his most fevered obsessions collected end to end like this, but fans will nd Robert Crumbs Sex Obsessions a fascinating peek inside an often tortured, always brilliantly talented mind, as well as an unparalleled collectors item.

The artist: Robert Crumb began his career in the late 1960s with Snatch, Zap and other underground comics. His characters Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural and The Snoid became instant icons, but it was the compulsive exploration of his sex fantasies with stronglegged, big-assed women in his work that made him most notorious. Subject of the award-winning feature lm Crumb, he now lives in the south of France with artist wife Aline Kominsky-Crumb.

[Crumb is] the Brueghel of the second half of the 20th century.
Robert Hughes, essayist and art critic

Personally Selected from Original Drawings

Robert Crumb has been called a genius, an insightful social commentator, a wicked humorist, and just plain wicked. His insistence on spilling his eccentric personal fantasies onto the page has won him adoring fans and vicious critics, though few deny that his talent equals that of the art stars of the 20th Century. One of three artistically inclined brothers, Robert escaped the family curse of mental illness through decades of self-prescribed art therapy. From 1964 until 2011 his obsessive daily drawing lled hundreds of sketchbooks. Now aged 67, Crumb has found a measure of peace, a cautious optimism, with his wife Aline, daughter Sophie, and two grandchildren in a small French village. Accordingly, his artistic output has slowed, while the value of anything he puts his hand to increases. He no longer needs to ll sketchbooks, which makes this six-book boxed set such a treasure. This is the rst collection of Robert Crumb sketches to be printed from the original art since the hardbound, slip cased, seven volume series issued by the German publisher Zweitausendeins The editor: Dian Hanson was born in Seattle in 1951. For 25 years she produced various mens magazines, including Puritan, Juggs and Leg Show, before becoming TASCHENs sexy book editor in 2001. Her many books for TASCHEN include Vanessa del Rio: Fifty Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior, Tom of Finland XXL, and The Big Butt Book. She lives in Los Angeles.

between 1981 and 1997. Unlike the Zweitausendeins edition, which included every doodle Crumb ever made, our new edition has been personally edited by the notoriously picky artist to include only what he considers his nest work. Most important, this set included 600 late period drawings never published in any previous sketchbook collection. Robert Crumb requested TASCHEN publish the books representing the second half of his career specically to showcase these new sketches. Knowing the demand for new Crumb material we could hardly refuse, and agreed not to release the sixvolume boxed set representing work created between 1964 and 1981 until next year. Limited to 1000 copies, this boxed set includes an art print titled The Little Guy That Lives Inside my Brain (1986), handcolored, numbered, and signed by the artist, while the rst of the six volumes bears an embossed studio stamp. Signed, original, never before published: these words describe an instant collectible sure to increase in value. The artist: Robert Crumb was born in Philadelphia in 1943 and encouraged by his older brother Charles to draw comics in childhood. He credits his mid-60s LSD use with turning him to the underground style that made his fame, best illustrated in the comics Zap, Snatch, Big Ass, Weirdo, and Hup. He has released scores of books, including TASCHENs Sex Obsessions (2007), and is the subject of the biographical lm Crumb (1994). He lives in France with his wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb.

$ 1,000 | 750 | 650

It was no more than eight years after the surrender of the German Nazi government when Josef H. Darchinger set out on his photographic journey through the West of a divided Germany. The bombs of World War II had reduced the countrys major cities to deserts of rubble. Yet his pictures show scarcely any signs of the downfall of a civilization. Not that the photographer was manipulating the evidence: he simply recorded what he saw. At the time, a New York travel agency was advertising the last opportunity to go and visit the remaining bomb sites. Darchingers pictures, in color and black-and-white, show a country in a fever of reconstruction. The economic boom was so incredible that the whole world spoke of an economic miracle. The people who achieved it, in contrast, look down-to-earth, unassuming, conscientious and diligent. And increasingly, they look like strangers in the world they have created. The photographs portray a country caught

between the opposite poles of technological modernism and cultural restoration, between affluence and penury, between German Gemtlichkeit and the constant threat of the Cold War. They show the winners and losers of the economic miracle, people from all social classes, at home, at work, in their very limited free time and as consumers. But they also show a country that looks, in retrospect, like a lm from the middle of the last century. The photographer: Josef Heinrich Darchinger started working as a freelance photojournalist in 1952. Darchingers photographs began to regularly appear in reputable German print media starting in the mid-1960s. In his years as a photographer for Der Spiegel and Die Zeit, Darchinger had a formative inuence on the magazines national news coverage of Bonn. He also presented his work at exhibitions and in collections of photographic portraitsfor

instance of Helmut Schmidt, Willy Brandt, Richard von Weizscker, or of Heinrich Bll. The author: Klaus Honnef is professor of photography theory at the Kassel Art Academy. He was one of the organizers of documenta 5 and documenta 6 in Kassel, and has been the curator of more than 500 exhibitions in Germany and abroad. He has written numerous books, including TASCHENs Contemporary Art (1988), Andy Warhol (1989), and Pop Art (2004). The editor: After nishing his studies in English and German literature, Frank Darchinger began his career as a photojournalist, while also assisting his father, Josef Heinrich Darchinger, with the classifying and updating of his legendarily vast and efficient photographic archive. Today Frank Darchinger works as a freelance photographer in Bonn.

Before Elvis there was nothing


John Lennon

This edition brings together Alfred Wertheimers most remarkable Elvis shots from 1956, along with a selection from his historic pictures of the star in 1958 as he was being shipped off to an army base in Germany. Each chapter is illustrated with an original poster created for this book by Hatch Show Print of Nashville, one of the oldest letterpress print shops in America, using much of the same type that was used for the Elvis posters they produced over 50 years ago.

When Elvis came to town on tour in 1956, chances are the concert posters were made by legendary Hatch Show Print, one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in America. In business since 1879, Hatch reects the history of American advertising and entertainment. Around the turn of the twentieth century, the shop printed posters for vaudeville and minstrel shows, circuses and carnivals, and entertainers on world tour. From the 1920s

through the early 1950s, second-generation owner and manager Will T. Hatch created many of the powerful woodblock images that helped dene the look of country music, including those used on posters for Minnie Pearl, Ernest Tubb, and Bill Monroe. Rock-and-roll impresarios relied on the shops posters to advertise musiciansincluding Elvison tour in the 50s. For this collectors edition, TASCHEN could think of no better collaborator to join

us in celebrating Alfred Wertheimers photographs of Elviss seminal year than Hatch Show Print, which created an original poster to open each chapter. Now owned and operated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Hatch was there when Elvis broke onto the national stage, and the shop continues to create posters with an irresistible vintage appeal while carrying on the mission of preservation through production.

The Esther Scroll of 1746


A facsimile edition, limited to only 1,746 copies, of the exquisitely illuminated Hanover Scroll
The use of scrolls dates back to ancient times, and one of the best known examples in history is the Esther scroll, or Hebrew megillah, which is devoted solely to the story of Queen Esther and is read on the feast of Purim. An uninhibitedly joyful festival, Purim celebrates the salvation of the Jews in the Persian empire of the 5th century under the rule of King Xerxes I. The word Purim is derived from the Hebrew pur, meaning lot, and refers to the fact that the Persian minister Haman determined by lot the time that all Jews should be destroyed. This circumstance, related in the Hebrew Bibles Book of Esther, is publicly read out from the megillah in the synagogue at Purim. TASCHENs facsimile of the Esther scroll is a major achievement in publishing history. It is produced from a very ne and rare example of the scroll held by the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Library in Hanover, dated 1746 and measuring 6.5 meters long; this particular megillah is unique not only in terms of its lavish illuminations but also because it contains a contemporary German version of the story of Esther. For many centuries, the creator of the Hanover scroll was unknown. Piecing together information from various sources, and performing his own stylistic analysis of this and other works of art from the period, author Falk Wiesemann recently made an enthralling discovery: the artist of the Hanover scroll was Wolf Leib Katz Poppers, a Jewish scribe and illustrator from Hildesheim.

Richly illustrated, continuous text, 6.5 m (over 21 ft) long, unfurls to the left from a leather-bound cylinder in a handcrafted walnut veneer display case Commentary volume contains the introduction, the biblical text of the Book of Esther and a fold-out sheet with an overview of all the illustrations Facsimile edition, limited to only 1,746 copies Commentary volume by Falk Wiesemann Cloth-bound and gilt-edged, 33.5 x 22 cm (13.2 x 8.6 in.), 189 pages

The edition of 100 copies was printed by hand on 100%-cotton archival-quality Rives BFK paper, using an American French Tool etching press. Each print is numbered, and signed by the artist.

Wingate Studio is located in an old dairy barn adjacent to the Pettengill family farmhouse in the rural Connecticut River valley of southwestern New Hampshire.

The prints of Limed Blossoms were made on an American French Tool etching press, using traditional intaglio printing techniques.

Walton Ford and master printer Peter Pettengill discuss the possibilities for the color plates based on the watercolor study, Wingate Studio, January 2007.

The artist: Walton Ford grew up in Westchester County, New York, in a family of gifted storytellers. As a child he was an amateur naturalistcollecting animals, hiking, shing, and devoting much of his free time to examining and drawing the dioramas and specimens at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He completed his studies in lmmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1982, but soon adapted his talent for storytelling to painting. His life-sized watercolors, which at rst glance appear to be in the vein of 19th-century natural-history painters like John J. Audubon or Edward Lear, are actually complexly layered fantasies depicting wild animals in unnatural settings and situations, and cite textual sources ranging from the letters of Benjamin Franklin to the journals of Leonardo da

Vinci. Ford lived in New York City for most of the 1980s and 90shome base for personally and professionally inuential travels to countries including Italy, India, and Mexicoand for some years supported himself as a wood renisher, carpenter, metalworker, and illustrator, while developing his craft and audience. His work has been exhibited widely since 1987 at private galleries and public institutions including The Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York, and the Michael Cohn Gallery in Los Angeles. He has been awarded a John Simon Guggenheim fellowship and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others.

Contributor: The introduction was written by Bill Buford, who was the ction editor of the New Yorker for eight years, where he rst came upon Walton Fords work to illustrate some of the stories he published. He is now a New Yorker staff writer. He was also the founding editor of Granta and has written two books.

Tapping into the archives of Americas most important surf photographer of the 60s and 70s

At a time when surng is more popular than ever, its tting to look back at the years that brought the sport into the mainstream. Developed by Hawaiian islanders over ve centuries ago, surng began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s, taking America and the worldby storm. Surng became not just a sport, but a way of life, and the culture that surrounded it was admired and exported across the globe. One of the key image-makers from that period is LeRoy Grannis, a surfer since 1931, who began photographing the scene in California and Hawaii in the longboard Gidget era of the early 1960s. This collection, drawn from Granniss personal archives, showcases an impressive selection of surf photographsfrom the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahus famed North Shore. An innovator in the eld, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change

lm in the water and stay closer to the action than other photographers of the time. Equally notable is his work covering an emerging surf lifestyle, from surfer stomps and hoards of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacic Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an eraa time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surng was at its bronzed best. The photographer: LeRoy Granniss initial foray into surng began at age 14 with a six-foot slab of pine, but it wasnt until the age of 42 that he picked up a camera and made a career out of it. Under doctors orders to take up a hobby, Grannis built a darkroom in his garage and began shooting surfers at Hermosa Beach, selling prints for a buck apiece. His photos soon started appearing in many of the burgeoning surf

magazines, and Photo: Grannis quickly became a hallmark of the California surf scene of the 1960s. Grannis is considered one of the most important documentarians of the sport, and was inducted into the Surng Hall of Fame in 1966. The editor: Jim Heimann is Executive Editor for TASCHEN America in Los Angeles and the author of numerous books on architecture, popular culture, and Hollywood history. The author: Over the past decade working as Surfer magazines globe-roaming editor at large, photojournalist Steve Barilotti has made it his business to document the sport, art, and lore of surng. His writing has also appeared in The Perfect Day and the books of renowned surf photographers Art Brewer and Ted Grambeau. Between trips, Steve lives in San Diego, California.

 A spectacular colossus of a book, almost a metre wide when opened to its full landscape form, it offers a windows into surfings boomer golden age through the perceptive lens of Grannis,...greatest ever in the world of surfing photography.

Zaha Hadid is a wildly controversial architect, who for many years built almost nothing, despite her designs winning prizes and critical acclaim. Some even said her work was unbuildable. Yet over the past decade she has completed numerous structures including the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati (which the New York Times called the most important new building in America since the Cold War), the Phaeno Science Center in

Wolfsburg, Germany, and the Central Building of the new BMW Assembly Plant in Leipzig, also in Germany. Today, Hadid is rmly established among the lite of world architecture, her audacious and futuristic designs having catapulted her to international fame. Born in Baghdad and educated in London, where her practice is based, Hadid has designed radical architecture for over 30 years and is now the subject of this mas-

sive TASCHEN monograph. Covering her complete works to date, and all of her recent work from Dubai to Guangzhou, this XL tome demonstrates the progression of Hadids career including not only buildings but also furniture and interior designs with in-depth texts, spectacular photos, and her own drawings.

Richard Prince discovered Naomi Harris in TASCHENs The New Erotic Photography and was so intrigued by her photos of American swingers that he tracked down the 34-year-old New Yorker, determined to make her his protg. When he discovered TASCHEN had signed her to do America Swings he asked to do an interview with her, where he reveals part of what makes her work so unique: When I look at one of your swinger photos what Im looking at is mostly you outside the picture looking at what youre photographing half-naked, all naked, taking these photos of next-door neighbors having sex He refers to Harriss secret for winning the condence of her subjects: To penetrate the world of middle class mate-swapping she had to join them, often working in just shoes and a tool

belt to hold her camera gear. Her extreme technique worked so well that in 48 months she was able to photograph 38 parties, crisscrossing the country from Mahwah, New Jersey, to Pleasanton, California; from Big Lake, Minnesota, to Washington, Texas. Her subjects are not the usual perfected androids who populate contemporary erotica, but ordinary people with extraordinary sex lives, including multi-orgasmic schoolteachers, polyamorous nurses, bi-sexual senior citizens and the Mandingos, a group of African-American men who service white wives. Stunningly photographed and surprisingly sexy, Richard Prince describes Harriss America Swings as something thats gloriously alternative, that isnt rentable, that cant be downloaded, thats uninhibited and

lled with a sense of strange joy. Almost like a J.G. Ballard theme park for sex. The photographer: Naomi Harris was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1973. She received her photographic training at New Yorks International Center of Photography. She has been published in Fortune, Flaunt, Life, and Heeb magazines, and likes to knit, sing karaoke, and frequent nude beaches. She lives in New York City. The author: Richard Prince, painter, photographer and collagist was born in 1949 in the Panama Canal Zone. He is known as a critic of and commentator on American consumer culture and as a master of appropriated art. He currently lives and works in upstate New York.

In his distinguished career as a Hollywood studio photographer, Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Kathleen Ruston, later Edda van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston, best known as Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. It was a humdrum commission for the portraitist

often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still, but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. She took my hand like... well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal mens hearts, he recalls. As Hepburns career soared following her Oscar-winning US debut in Roman Holiday, Willoughby became a trusted friend, framing her working and home life.

His historic, perfectionist, tender photographs seek out the many facets of Hepburns beauty and elegance, as she progresses from her debut to her career high of My Fair Lady in 1963. Willoughbys studies, showing her on set, preparing for a scene, interacting with actors and directors, and returning to her private life, comprise one of photographys great platonic love affairs and an unrivaled record of one of the 20th centurys touchstone beauties.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser: born Friedrich Stowasser, he lived and died as Friedensreich (meaning realm of peace) Hundertwassera name he chose for himself. Architect, ecologist, painter, designer, writer, innovator his list of talents goes on and on. Hundertwasser reinvented the art of living as an artist 24 hours a day. The lifework of this prolic creator is brought together for the rst time in this limited edition of 10,000 copies. Hundertwasser began to number and catalogue his work in 1954 and had completed the task for his entire uvre, including short histories to accompany each work, before his untimely death in February 2000. He worked closely with TASCHEN on this project, designing the layout and the book itself: with rounded

edges and a cover with colored velvet on black linen, the Catalogue Raisonn is an exquisite work of art. Volume I contains a text by Wieland Schmied, a celebrated art historian and a longtime personal friend of Hundertwasser, with selected paintings, architectural works, projects, and manifestos. Volume II comprises Hundertwassers entire painted uvre, adhering to his precise numbering and information system, his architecture as well as everything else he ever produced, from postage stamps to license plates, architecture, and applied art. This is a testament to Hundertwassers work the way he wanted it. Because the books detailed concept, design, and text were completed by the artist before his

death, this book now speaks for him, breathing life into his work. The author: Wieland Schmied is an art critic and essayist. He was director of the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hanover, where he organized the rst big Hundertwasser retrospective, in 1964, with an accompanying catalogue raisonn. From 1974 to 1975 Wieland Schmied was chief curator at the Nationalgalerie in Berlin, from 1978 to 1986 the director of the German Artist Exchange Program (DAAD), Berlin, and afterwards director of the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. He was President of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, between 1995 and 2004.

Good artists are never on holiday, was Martin Kippenbergers maxim, and he demanded the same total commitment from those who worked with him. He was one of the most controversial and innovative artists of the 1980s and 90s. To him, sculpture, painting, photography, books, posters, and even invitation cards were all equally valid forms of his artistic practice. He constantly played off one media against another in an output as prolic as it was varied. Kippenberger produced his very rst major monograph with TASCHEN in 1991. Following this close collaboration evolved the idea of an artist book, limited to 57 copies, each presented with an ashtray artwork cast in epoxy resin (Kippenberger rhymes with Kippenbecher in German, colloquial for ashtray).

An in-depth study of Koons entire uvre to date

 I think we live in a great time. Its about gesture; the medium is not the message, the message is in the gesture.
Jeff Koons

UT O D L SO

From kinky to kitsch to conceptual, Jeff Koons art is anything but conformist. Since he stirred up the art world establishment in the 1980s with his unapologetic basketball sculptures and stainless steel toy blow-ups, Koons has been known as a bit of a bad boya reputation he conrmed in the early 1990s via works depicting him having sex with then-wife Cicciolina, the Italian porn star-cum-politician. But at the same time he charmed the art world with Puppy, a 40-foot tall oral terrier that now resides at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Koons exploitation of the banal, in the aggrandizement and/or embodiment of kitsch and pop imagery, has become his trademark; detractors may delight in their nay-saying, but Koons work commands millions at auction and his position at the forefront of contemporary art is indisputable. This exhaustive monograph begins with a biographical essay by Interview magazine editor-in-chief Ingrid Sischy, who tells the personal story of a dedicated artist unwilling to compromise his work even in torrid times. An essay by Eckhard Schneider sees

Koons from a European perspective. Arranged in chronological chapters by work groups, the main body of the book features art historian and critic Katy Siegels detailed analyses alongside hundreds of large-format images, tracing Koons career from 1979 to today. Fans of Jeff Koons work will nd in this publication not only a sumptuous book-object, but also the most comprehensive study of the artists work ever published. The editor: Book designer and editor Hans Werner Holzwarth studied photog raphy and communication design, then co-led his own company for corporate design. Since 1992 Holzwarth has focused on book design, collaborating with Larry Clark, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Boris Mikhailov, Issey Miyake, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, Juergen Teller, Jeff Wall, John Waters, Christopher Wool, and many others.

The Greatest Movie Never Made


Ten books in one tell the fascinating tale of Kubricks unlmed masterpiece

 This is something so fantastic... the ultimate obsessive book on Kubrick. Documentation, the script, his notes, landscape photos, costumes, you name it and its all in this incredible book. I saw parts of it at the TASCHEN office, and its superb. Really superb.
Booksoup.com, Los Angeles

Release party at the TASCHEN Store in Paris with Alison Castle, Christiane Kubrick, Jan Harlan, and (standing) Michael Amzalag from M/M (Paris).

For 40 years, Kubrick fans and lm buffs have wondered about the directors mysterious unmade lm on Napoleon Bonaparte. Slated for production immediately following the release of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Kubricks Napoleon was to be at once a character study and a sweeping epic, replete with grandiose battle scenes featuring thousands of extras. To write his original screenplay, Kubrick embarked on two years of intensive research; with the help of dozens of assistants and an Oxford Napoleon specialist, he amassed an unparalleled trove of research and preproduction material, including approximately 15,000 location scouting photographs and 17,000 slides of Napoleonic imagery. No stone was left unturned in Kubricks nearly-obsessive quest to uncover every piece of information history had to offer about Napoleon. But alas, Kubricks movie was not destined to be: the lm studios, rst M.G.M. and then United Artists, decided such an undertaking was too risky at a time when historical epics were out of fashion. TASCHENs sumptuous, limited-edition tribute to this unmade masterpiece makes Kubricks valiant work on Napoleon available to fans for the rst time. Herein, readers can peruse a selection of Kubricks corre-

spondence, various costume studies, location scouting photographs, research material, script drafts, and more, each category of material in its own book. Kubricks nal draft is reproduced in facsimile while the other texts are tidily kenneled into one volume where they dare not interfere with the visual material. All of these books are tucked inside of or shall we say hiding in? a carved-out reproduction of a Napoleon history book. The text book features the complete original treatment, essays examining the screenplay in historical and dramatic contexts, an essay by Jean Tulard on Napoleon in cinema, and a transcript of interviews Kubrick conducted with Oxford professor Felix Markham. The culmination of years of research and preparation, this unique publication offers readers a chance to experience the creative process of one of cinemas greatest talents as well as a fascinating exploration of the enigmatic gure that was Napoleon Bonaparte. *Includes exclusive access to searchable/ downloadable online research database: Kubricks complete picture le of nearly 17,000 Napoleonic images*

Jurrasic Moment

Whos the greatest star of star photography? Its the inimitable David LaChapelle, the photographer whose singular style is perfectly unmistakable. He has photographed personalities as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Madonna , Amanda Lepore, Eminem, Philip Johnson, Lance Armstrong, Pamela Anderson, Lil Kim, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Taylor, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hillary Clinton, Muhammad Ali, and Britney Spears, to name just a few. Once called the Fellini of photography, LaChapelle has worked for the most prestigious international publications and has been the subject of exhibitions in both commercial galleries and leading public institutions around the world. Celebrating the visionary LaChapelles truly extraordinary photography, this 688page, XL-sized book is packed cover-tocover with vibrant full-bleed images; the best of his entire career to date. Bursting at the seams with spectacle and drama, and saturated with colors that only LaChapelle can realize, this limited edition pays tribute to the most daring and ambitious photogra-

pher in the history of portraiture. Not yet out of high school, LaChapelle was offered his rst professional job by Andy Warhol to shoot for Interview magazine. His photography has been showcased in numerous galleries and museums, including Staley-Wise; Tony Shafrazi Gallery and Deitch Projects in New York; the Fahey-Klein Gallery in California; Goss Gallery in Dallas; and internationally at Artmosphere in Vienna; Camerawork in Germany; Reex Amsterdam; Maruani & Noirhomme in Belgium; Sozzani and Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Italy; and at the Barbican Museum in London, to this day the most attended show in the museums history. His unfettered images of celebrity and contemporary pop culture have appeared on and between the covers of magazines such as Italian Vogue, French Vogue, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and i-D. In recent years LaChapelle has expanded his work to include music videos, live theatrical events and documentary lm-making. His directing credits include music videos for artists such as Christina Aguilera, Moby, Jennifer Lopez, Britney

Spears, The Vines and No Doubt. Its My Life with Gwen Stefani won the award for Best Pop Video at the MTV Music Video Awards and LaChapelle himself garnered the MPVAs Director of the Year award in 2004. His stage work includes Elton Johns The Red Piano, the Caesars Palace spectacular he designed and directed, and which was the top-selling show in Las Vegas for 2004. His burgeoning interest in lm saw him make the short documentary Krumped, an award-winner at Sundance from which he developed RIZE, the feature lm acquired for worldwide distribution by Lions Gate Films. The lm was released in the U.S. and internationally in the summer of 2005 to huge critical acclaim, and was chosen to open the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Ranked among the top ten most important people in photography by American Photo magazine, LaChapelles work continues to be inspired by everything from art history to pornography, creating both a record and mirror of all facets of popular culture today.

As a disco-dancing, punk-loving teenager in Amsterdam, Inez van Lamsweerde launched herself into a career in fashion with some zeal. Now 46 and the industrys most powerful imagemaker, she is responsible for defining what fashion looks like, season after season. Her vast back catalogue reflects not just one style but a total fashion photography universe, so seamlessly can she slip between the high-production commercial shoots, intimate portraits and informal street snaps that describe each style epoch. Working together from New York City, van Lamsweerde and her husband, Vinoodh Matadin, not only share the longest photographers credit in the business but also its most prestigious advertising clients and magazine assignments. Inez is a passionate leader of a small army of loyal collaborators and has the mesmeric ability to extract the extraordinary and unique from everybody around her. And while her images are wildly diverse in discipline and form, they always have a sense of disturbance that places them well beyond the merely beautiful and glamorous.

The golden age of Americas favorite pastime

Professional baseball of the 1960s and 70s decades belongs to Neil Leifer, the premier sports photographer of his generation. In 1960, at age 17, Neil had the human drive to match his new Nikon motor drive and he was on his way. With gumption and an eye for the decisive moment, the baby-faced kid from Manhattans lower east side was soon selling his photos to Sports Illustrated. This superb collection of images reects the total access Neil had to the players on the ball eld, in the dugout, and in the locker room. All the pathos, elation, disappointment, and celebration are etched upon the faces of the players and their mercurial fans. From the 1960 World Series between the Yankees and the Piratesdecided in the 9th inning of the 7th game by a Bill Mazeroski home runto the 1977 Series between the Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Neil Leifer never stopped shooting. He was up in the nosebleed section of the grandstands in Yankee Stadium, in the rafters of the Astrodome in Houston, or a helicopter high above. Who won the games wasnt importantonly how the game was played. The

blood, sweat, and grace. Its all about the game, and Leifers photographs create a topographical map to the very heart and soul of baseball. Featuring over 300 photos, the book is divided into four chapters: The Game; the Heroeslike Roberto Clemente, Mickey Mantle, and pitcher Sandy Koufax; the Rivalry (infamously, between the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox and the Giants and Dodgers); and the World Series championship. The photographer: Native New Yorker Neil Leifer began photographing sports events as a teenager. He has shot over 150 covers for Sports Illustrated, published 13 books, and held the position of staff photographer for Time magazine. His images of Ali also played prominently in TASCHENs GOAT. The writers: Writer/director Ron Shelton played second base in the Baltimore farm system for ve years before making lms including Bull Durham, White Men Cant Jump, Cobb, and Our Lady of the Ballpark.

Between 2002 and 2010, Gabriel Schechter combined his childhood obsession with baseball and Masters degree in English as Research Associate at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He is the author of three books, including Victory Faust: The Rube Who Saved McGraws Giants. The editor: Eric Kroll edited several titles for TASCHEN including Natacha Merritts Digital Diaries and The Wonderful World of Bill Ward. His photography was the subject of TASCHENs Fetish Girls and Beauty Parade.

The best of Neil Leifer
The most memorable moments since the birth of pro football in America In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shotAlan Ameches game-winning Sudden Death touchdownwas Leifers 16th birthday. This game, called The Greatest Ever Played, signaled footballs emergence as Americas new national pastime; formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight while football surpassed pro baseball and college football in national television ratings. Starting then, on any given Sunday Leifer was most likely shooting a football game somewhere in America. His 1961 photo of legendary Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle dropping back to pass landed Leifer his rst cover for Sports Illustrated and cemented his close connection to the sport. While best known for his iconic photograph of Muhammad Ali towering over a fallen Sonny Liston, and for the enormous diversity of subjects he covered in and out of the sports world, it is his football pictures Leifer considers his best. This collection represents the best of his best, culled from over 10,000 rolls of lm on the sport, including hundreds of previously unpublished pictures. Its impossible to conceive of Peyton Manning hovering over an impromptu wood re on the sidelines during a blizzard, but Leifer captured Tittles Giants doing exactly that during the coldest game in his living memory (the 1962 Championship in New York, a game far colder than the famous Ice Bowl). From Vince Lombardis Green Bay Packers dynasty to the Miami Dolphins perfect season in 1972 to the Minnesota Vikings terrifying Front Fourthe Purple People Eaterstheyre all here; and so is Bobby Layne, a holdout from the pre-face mask leatherhead days. Following an introduction assembled from the best football columns of the era by famed sports columnist Jim Murray, this collection is divided into four chapters: On Any Sunday is Leifers homage to the game. The Legends includes heroes like Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Frank Gifford, and Mean Joe Greene. The Bosses delves into the victories on and off the eld of immortal coaches Vince Lombardi, John Madden, Tom Landry, Weeb Ewbank, and others. Finally, The Big Game traces major championship games from 1958 through Super Bowl XII. The indepth captions put the images into their historical context, making the book highly accessible and informative. Presented in a custom slipcase and limited to a total of 1,700 copies signed by the photographer, this XL edition is a companion to Neil Leifers instant sell-out success, Ballet in the Dirt: The Golden Age of Baseball, published by TASCHEN in 2007. The photographer: Native New Yorker Neil Leifer began photographing sports events as a teenager. He has shot over 150 covers for Sports Illustrated, published 13 books of his photographs, and held the position of staff photographer for Time magazine. His Muhammad Ali boxing images played prominently in TASCHENs GOATGreatest Of All Time. The authors: Jim Murray was a Hartford, Connecticut, native, and 1943 Trinity College graduate. He worked at the New Haven Register and Los Angeles HeraldExaminer, and was TIME Inc.s Hollywood correspondent, a founding father of Sports Illustrated, and sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times for 37 years. Murray was inducted into Cooperstowns Baseball Hall of Fame writers wing in 1988 and won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 1990. He died in 1998.

The Epic Journey of Apollo 11


To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing, TASCHEN has paired Norman Mailers seminal text with spectacular photographyfrom the archives of NASA, LIFE magazine, and many other sources to create a unique tribute to the dening scientic mission of our time. It has been called the single most historic event of the 20th century: On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins met John F. Kennedy s call for a manned Moon landing by the end of the 1960s. A decade of tests and training, a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, a budget of $24 billion, and the most powerful rocket ever launched all combined in an unprecedented event watched by millions of people the world over. And no one captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Norman Mailer, was hired by LIFE in 1969 to cover the Moon shot. His three-part feature was the longest nonction piece the magazine had ever published. He enhanced and extended his reportage with deeper reection in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, excerpted here for the rst time. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun, to the crucial NASA support staff, to the three astronautsMailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of the best photographs and maps from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. Many of them previously unpublished, these images document the development of the agency and the mission, life from inside the command module and out on the Moons surface, and the worlds jubilant reaction to the missions success. This new edition includes an original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by leading Apollo 11 experts which explain the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log, post-ight interviews with the astronauts, and publications of the day. Limited to 1969 copies, each copy includes a Plexiglasframed, ready-to-hang, archival-quality photographic print, produced using the revolutionary new Skia printing technique, numbered, and signed, by Buzz Aldrin. BIOGRAPHIES Norman Mailer was one of the 20thcenturys greatest and most inuential writers, as well as one of Americas most renowned and controversial literary gures. The best-selling author of a dozen novels and 20 works of nonction, he also wrote stage plays, screenplays, television miniseries, hundreds of essays, two books of poetry, and a collection of short stories. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he lived in Brooklyn, New York, and Provincetown, Massachusetts. Buzz Aldrin made history as one of the rst men to walk on the Moon. A graduate of West Point, he earned his Sc.D. in Astronautics from M.I.T. before joining NASA, and piloting the Gemini XII and Apollo 11 missions. He is the founder of the ShareSpace Foundation and author of several books. Colum McCann is the author of seven books, including Let the Great World Spin. He has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, GQ, The Times, and La Repblica.

Norman Mailer. MoonFire. The Epic Journey of Apollo 11

A Moby-Dick of space...the gift of a genius. New York Magazine, New York

The Lunar Rock Edition by

A piece of the moon: one of the rarest substances on Earth

Meteorites from the moon are exceptionally rare. There are only 58 lunar meteorites known and their total combined weight is less than 30 kilograms, making them millions of times rarer than gem-grade diamonds. However, most of the lunar meteorites reside in museum collections and research institutions, leaving only 10 kilograms or so available to collectors worldwide. Since acquiring an Apollo Moon rock is impossible, the only realistic way

to own a piece of the Moon is to acquire a lunar meteorite. In order for a piece of moon rock to get to the Earth, it must be blasted off the lunar surface with enough velocity (approximately 5,400 miles per hour) to escape the moons gravity. Less than one in a trillion meteors that enter the Earths atmosphere reaches the surface, which explains the incredible rarity of extra-terrestrial rocks on our planet.

Each of the 12 Lunar Rock Editions comes with an authentic and documented specimen of lunar rock, all ranging in weight, size and coloration. Copy no. 1,969 includes a complete Lunar Meteorite weighing in at 348 grams. One of the largest lunar meteorites ever found on Earth, this is an extremely rare item as nearly all meteorites have been cut into smaller portions for sale or study.

The Lunar Rock Edition by Marc Newson is limited to 12 copies only (edition no. 19581969). The design concept is inspired by the Apollo 11 LEM (lunar excursion module). Each book is contained in a LEM-inspired case whose surface is an actual 3D topography of the Moon made from a single piece of aluminum (size: 523 x 596 x 347 mm, weight: 22 kilograms), and is accompanied by a separately packaged piece of lunar rock.

Marc Newson is one of the most accomplished and inuential designers of our time. He has worked across a wide range of disciplines to create everything from chairs, household objects, a concept car to restaurants, interiors of private and commercial jets and a spaceplane, designed for EADS Astrium, the fulllment of a lifelong personal ambition.

American Beauty
Norman Mailers poignant and provocative text and Bert Sterns historic Last Sitting photographs evoke the spirit of Americas greatest female icon
Opposite: Monroe and Stern, June 1962 Right: Crucix 2, 1962. Marilyn Monroe always required nal approval before posing for photographersStern was no exception. She would cross out her rejects with a marker, scratch them with a hair pin or even cut them in half. Stern caused a sensation when he published several of the photographs she had nixed in the Autumn issue of Eros magazine a few months after her death. Photos Bert Stern

Now TASCHEN has paired Mailers original text with Bert Sterns photographs from the legendary Last Sittingwidely considered the most intimate ever taken of Monroeto create a tting tribute to the woman who, at the time of her death in 1962, was the worlds most famous, a symbol of glamour and eroticism for an entire generation. But though she was feted and adored by her public, her private life was that of a little girl lost, desperate to nd love and security. Mailers Marilyn is beautiful, tragic, and complex. As Mailer reects upon her lifefrom her bleak childhood through to the mysterious circumstances of her deathshe emerges as a symbol of the bizarre decade during which she reigned as Hollywoods greatest female star. This book, conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailers collaborator on ve works, combines the authors masterful text with Sterns penetrating images of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the BelAir Hotel, Marilyn had never allowed such unfettered access, nor had she looked so breathtakingly beautiful. Six weeks later,

mysteriously, she was dead. In this bold synthesis of literary classic and legendary portrait sitting, Mailer and Stern lift the veils of confusion surrounding Monroe the woman, the star, the sex symboland offer profound insight into an iconic gure whose true personality remains an enigma even today. The author: Norman Mailer (19232007) was one of the 20th centurys greatest and most inuential writers, as well as one of Americas most renowned and controversial literary gures. The best-selling author of a dozen novels and 20 works of nonction, he also wrote stage plays, screenplays, television miniseries, hundreds of essays, two books of poetry, and a collection of short stories. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he lived in Brooklyn, New York, and Provincetown, Massachusetts. The photographer: Bert Stern (1929 2013) was one of Americas greatest portrait photographers, who during the 1960s produced 200 pages annually for Vogue, as well as many of the most important print and

television advertising campaigns. He is best known for his revolutionary print ads for Smirnoff and his portrait sitting with Marilyn Monroe just six weeks before her death. Stern lived and worked in New York City until his death in June 2013. The contributing authors: Lawrence Schiller is a prize-winning photojournalist, a producer and director of 16 motion pictures, and a best-selling author. He collaborated with Norman Mailer, a friend for three decades, on ve books and three screenplays. J. Michael Lennon is Emeritus Professor of English at Wilkes University and the author of the forthcoming authorized biography of Norman Mailer, with whom he was close friends for 35 years.

In the flesh
Just months before her death, Marilyn Monroe gave a young photographer his big break, and this is his story

Marilyn & Me is an intimate story of a legend before her fall and a young photographer on his way to the top. Lawrence Schillers original text and extraordinary photographstwo-thirds of which have never been published beforetake us back to that time, and to the surprising connection that allowed Marilyn to bond with a kid from Brooklyn, a kid with a lot of ambition but very little experience. His is a story that has never been told before, and he tells it with tact, humor, and compassion. The result is a real and unexpected portrait that captures the star in the midst of her nal struggle.

In 1966, during a brief stint as a receptionist for Town and Country magazine, Linda Eastman snagged a press pass to a very exclusive promotional event for the Rolling Stones aboard a yacht on the Hudson River; her fresh, candid photographs of the band were far superior to the formal shots made by the bands official photographer, and she was instantly on the way to making a name for herself as a top rock n roll photographer. In May 1968, with her portrait of Eric Clapton, she entered the record books as the rst female photographer to have her work featured on the cover of Rolling Stone. During her tenure as the leading photographer of the late 1960s musical scene, she captured many of rocks most important musicians on lm, including Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, The Doors, and the Grateful Dead. In 1967, Linda went to London to document the Swinging Sixties, where she met Paul McCartney at the Bag O Nails club and subsequently photographed The Beatles during a launch event for the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Paul and Linda fell in love, and were married on March 12, 1969. For the next three decades, until her untimely death, she devoted herself to her family, vegetarianism, animal rights, and photography. From her early rock n roll portraits, through the nal years of The Beatles, via touring with Wings to raising four children with Paul, Linda captured her whole world on lm. Her shots range from spontaneous family pictures to studio sessions with Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, as well as artists Willem de Kooning and Gilbert and George. Always unassuming and fresh, her work displays a warmth and a feeling for the precise moment that captures the essence of any subject. Whether photographing her children, celebrities, animals, or a eeting moment of everyday life, she did so without pretension or artice. This retrospective volumeselected from her archive of over 200,000 imagesis produced in close collaboration with Paul McCartney and their children. As such, it is a moving personal journal and a lasting testament to Lindas talent.

The photographer: Linda McCartney (ne Eastman) was born in New York in 1941. She took a photo course with Hazel Archer and studied art history at the University of Arizona before settling in New York City, where she began her photo career shooting rock portraits. Outside of her photography, which has been exhibited in over 50 galleries worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York, and the International Center of Photography, New York, Linda McCartney is known for her passionate animal-rights activism and her staunch vegetarianism. She wrote cookbooks and founded her own brand of frozen vegetarian meals, all the while raising a family, continuing to take photographs, and participating as a Wings band member alongside Paul McCartney. She died of breast cancer in 1998 at the age of 56. The contributing authors: Annie Leibovitz has been a working photographer for 40 years. She was the chief photographer for Rolling Stone and then the rst contributing photographer for the revived Vanity Fair. In addition to her editorial work at Vanity Fair, and later at Vogue, she created several award-winning advertising campaigns. She was designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. Martin Harrison is a historian of art and photography and an exhibition curator. He worked with Linda McCartney on Roadworks (1996), Light from Within (2001), and her exhibitions at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford and the International Center of Photography in New York. He has published widely on photography and, most recently, on the paintings of Francis Bacon. The editor: Alison Castle received a BA in philosophy from Columbia University and an MA in photography and lm from New York University (NYU/ International Center of Photography masters program). She is the editor of titles on photography, lm, and design, including Some Like it Hot and The Stanley Kubrick Archives.

SUMO: A Landmark Revisited


Helmut always demonstrated a healthy disdain for easy or predictable solutions. SUMO a bold and, certainly within the traditions of photography, an unprecedented publishing venture was an irresistible project. The idea of a spectacular compendium of images, reproduced to exceptional page size and to state-of-the-art origination and printing standards, emerged from an open, exploratory dialogue between photographer and publisher. Helmut liked to probe possibilities, ever eager to rethink the ways in which he could develop and extend the all-important interface between his work and his audience. The magazine page had been the constant on which he had built his career; from the mid-1970s, books and exhibitions offered further opportunities, allowing him to exploit more extended picture sequences and signicant changes of print scale. Here, with the physically commanding SUMO, weighing in boxed and shrink-wrapped at 35.4 kilos, Helmut created, at the close of the 20th century, a landmark book that would stand head and shoulders above anything that had been attempted conceptually or technically before. SUMO, complete with its bespoke lectern, set an ambitious new standard a book with the dimension of a private exhibition. SUMO might also be interpreted as a triumph of another order, with a very particular political and cultural signicance that made it a singularly emotive and gratifying achievement. For here was a forceful statement, implicit rather than baldly stated and all the stronger for that conrming the authority of an unusually gifted individuals perspective and emphatically marking his determination to engage an audience on his terms in short, a statement about freedom of expression. Helmut ranks among the foremost gurative artists of his era. A social commentator of exceptional insight, his was a distinct and surprising sensibility perverse, with a sharp and insistent curiosity, perfectly leavened by wry humour. Helmuts talent was uniquely personal and he had the ability to turn into a valuable creative resource everything that he experienced, including the turmoil of those formative years in which brutal and traumatic political realities disrupted all that had been agreeable and stable in his life. An atrst reluctant exile, he adapted imaginatively to his itinerant destiny. Helmut developed a nely calibrated sensitivity to the atmosphere of place and to everything he observed notably to the subtleties of social codes and rituals and to the visual language of seduction and of style. He took inspiration from his nostalgic fondness for the evocative symbols of old Europe, the Europe of his youth; and he embraced with fascination the vulgar New Babylons of the U. S., particularly Los Angeles. As he matured, he learned to use that matchless eye and twisted perception to create a body of work that is to its age as signicant a document as are, for instance, the satirical caricatures of William Hogarth to the excesses of 18th-century Britain, the drawings of Honor Daumier to the social nuances of French life in the mid-19th century or the savage visual dissections of George Grosz to the decadence of that very Berlin into which Helmut was born. Helmut truly found his form once he settled in Paris. There, he dened for himself a creative role within a chic high Bohemia, the milieu of interlinked friends and professional associates in the worlds of fashion, the media and the arts that was the stimulating crucible for his work. In his rue Aubriot studio in the 1970s, he stored his Kodachrome transparencies in small cabinets labelled Fashion, Erotic subjects and Portraits mondains; but of course his genius was to wilfully blur these distinctions, building a multilayered social portrait in which subtle allusions and telling undercurrents lent every picture intrigue and reverberation. Helmut travelled widely, but always carried with him the precious and poignant memories of his native Germany; and these feelings drew him back with increasing regularity to the country and culture that had shaped him. There was an irresistible logic in the fact that the four issues of Helmut Newtons Illustrated that he produced between 1985 and 1995 should take their inspiration from then-new photo-illustrated journals that had inspired him in the 1930s. Germany could boast a long and signicant tradition in the story of publishing, since the owering of printing in the pioneering era of Johannes Gutenberg; and Helmut had, at rst hand, witnessed its tragic corollary with the repression and the book burning of the Nazis. This observation calls to mind Helmuts cool-headed response some years ago to the report that a lecture he had been invited to deliver to a university audience would be disrupted by a group of students planning to throw raw meat at this speaker,
Milan, May 1999: Huge piles of printing sheets waiting to be bound at Legatoria LEM, an italian bookbindery for oversized books, including rare bibles for the Vatican. Over 350 tons of paper were needed at the printer in Verona over a period of three months.

whose work they were only prepared to perceive through the prism of their own rigid prejudices. Helmuts judicious opening remarks situated him immediately as one who was lucky to have escaped the increasingly vicious purges of the late 1930s and who had surely earned the right to freedom of artistic expression and the right, as a working photographer, to challenge and to provoke. The student anger was defused and by the end of his talk all were ready to offer up their resounding applause for an artist with the courage and tenacity to pursue his creative instinct to the full and who, through his witty, sophisticated and confrontational images, was determined to throw down the gauntlet against the mediocre, the safe and the supercial. SUMO, appropriately published in Germany, has made its memorable statement as a piece of photo-book history. Its size and consequent costliness, however, inevitably limited its diffusion. This new edition is the fullment of an ambition conceived some years ago by Helmut.

Recipient of the 2008 Pritzker Prize, Jean Nouvel is without any doubt Frances most original and important contemporary architect. From 1967 to 1970, he was an assistant of the inuential architects Claude Parent and Paul Virilio, then creating his own office in Paris. His rst widely acclaimed project was the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris (198187, with Architecture Studio). Since then he has completed the Lyon Opera House (1986 93), the Euralille Shopping Center, Lille (199194), and the Fondation Cartier, Paris (199194). His major completed projects since 2000 include the Culture and Convention Center in Lucerne, Switzerland (19982000), the spectacular Agbar Tower on Barcelonas Diagonal Avenue (2001 03), the extension of the Reina Soa

Museum, (Madrid, 19992005), the Quai Branly Museum on the Seine in Paris (200106), and the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Apart from receiving the 2008 Pritzker Prize, Jean Nouvel won the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architecture) Gold Medal in 2001. Jean Nouvel worked for ve years with author Philip Jodidio on this prodigiously illustrated TASCHEN monograph, a book that will nally give the full measure of the architects talent. Two 400-page hardcover volumes give the most complete overview to date of Jean Nouvels career, including works in progress, such as the new Louvre in Abu Dhabi, the Philharmonie de Paris, and the extension of the MoMA in New York. The books graphic design and images were conceived and selected by the archi-

tect; in addition, the transparent printed dust jackets mimic the architects own tendency to play with contrasts and overlaid patterns. One can truly say that this publication is Nouvel by Nouvel, inside and out. The author: Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard University, and was editor-in-chief of the leading French art journal Connaissance des Arts for over two decades. He has published numerous articles and books on contemporary architecture, including TASCHENs Architecture Now! series, Building a New Millennium, and monographs on Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Norman Foster, Richard Meier, Renzo Piano, and lvaro Siza.

Smart and often wryly funny, Albert Oehlens paintings play the medium for all its worth and then some. After realizing that the so-called death of painting freed him to explore the number of aspects through which one could expand painting, Oehlen started work on a wide variety of gurative and non-objective offerings, in what he has called his post-non-gurative art. The artist continuously challenges himself, setting up rules that force him to overcome convention and his own routine in order to arrive at a satisfying image. During his career he has chosen to paint in primary colors only or in gray, to integrate mirrors into his canvases, or to start on computer paintings when the rst PCs became available. In his most recent work Oehlen expands painting through the use of advertising posters whose in-your-face aesthetics he transforms with subtle brushwork. Never without a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor, his work seems to wink at us, daring us to change the way we perceive an image. This XL monograph covers the entire scope of Oehlens uvre: Roberto Ohrt discusses the early years, when Oehlen came into his own alongside Kippenberger, Bttner, and others, part of a scene that broke rules in art and rock music. Klaus Kertess examines the years from 1988 onwards, when Oehlen saw himself more self-consciously as a painter and started his rst abstract works, then continued to probe the limits of the medium. Martin Prinzhorn and John Corbett take a close look at aspects of Oehlens iconography, and Oehlen discusses his computer paintings in a conversation with Corbett. An exhaustive biography and bibliography round out this comprehensive study.

Neo Rauch Hans Werner Holzwarth (Ed.), Wolfgang Bscher, Harald Kunde, Gary Tinterow Hardcover in clamshell box, 33 x 44 cm (13 x 17.3 in.), 476 pages

Bursting with radiant and unsettling juxtapositions, Neo Rauchs paintings are wormholes into worlds of startling psychological power and cultural collisions. His scenes involve the viewer in a history that is at once mythic, intimate, and present. Through a deep consideration of philosophy, art history, literature, and his own dreamscape, Rauchs paintings depict the precipices of progress and the struggles of communication. Electried by their rich palettes, Rauchs fragmented landscapes and timeless characters dance between pop and baroque, social and psychological, graphic and painterly. Born in Leipzig in 1960, Rauch learned his trade behind the Iron Curtain. His inuences and interests were shaped by personal hardship and the tumultuous changes in East Germany after

the Wall fell. In the late 1980s, having nished his studies at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig under Arnold Rink and Bernhard Heisig, he explored diverse approaches to painting in dialogue with works he encountered by Francis Bacon, the New Wild Painters, and the preRenaissance painters he saw during his travels in Italy. By 1993, he had arrived at the unique style of intertwining guration and abstraction that characterizes his uvre and has brought him international attention and respect. Only a book of truly epic scale could begin to unpack the emotional, historical, and formal density of Rauchs canvases. Comprising over 450 pages, including more than 250 large-scale reproductions, this monograph is the most inclusive collection of his work to date. It

offers a generous range of writings that illuminate the personal, symbolic, and formal complexities of Rauchs world. Wolfgang Bschers open and sensitive account of a walk through Rauchs neighborhood reveals the painters compassion and modesty. Harald Kunde tracks Rauchs stylistic development through its main semantic threads and historical inuences. Gary Tinterow draws from his work on Rauchs exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum to offer the reader a guide to the symbols that form the painters extensive mythology. These essays complement Rauchs work with nuanced insights while allowing the images room to speak on their own. Within this atlas, readers will discover the rich density and enigmatic openness of Rauchs paintings.

OUT D L O S

Femme fatale Olga Rodionova is a wellknown beauty who moves in Moscows fashion and jet set circles. When her adoring husband, a powerful Russian oligarch, sought to have special portraits made of his wife, he asked none other than Bettina Rheimsan unusual request for a photographer of Rheimss stature. Rheims was captivated by Olgas unique aura and felt excited by the challenge of nding aesthetic ways of doing the portraits so that they didnt feel like run of the mill pornography. The rst shoot took place in Rheimss country home and Olgas husband was so pleased with the images that he suggested

they produce a book with Olga as the star. A second shoot followed, in black and white with a sado-masochistic dcor and other men and women playing slightly perverse sex games with Olga. A third, Marie-Antoinette-inspired shoot took place entirely in the studio. Rheims succeeded in nding a variety of ways to depict one subject with a continuous freshness and intrigue; The Book of Olga represents the most delectable fruits of her success. With over one hundred images, as well as an introduction by French author Catherine Millet, this unique book is both a love song and an artistic statement.

The photographer: Bettina Rheims devoted herself wholly to photography in 1978. In the past three decades she has produced many major series of works for books and exhibitions. In 2007 she was awarded the Lgion dHonneur for her artistic achievement. The contributing author: Catherine Millet is editor-in-chief and co-founder of Art Press. She is also a curator and the author of many books, including La vie sexuelle de Catherine M. (2001).

Bettina Rheims and Serge Bramlys Rose, cest Paris is both a photographic monograph and a feature-length lm on DVD. This extraordinary work of art, in two different but interlocking and complementary formats, dees easy categorization. For in this multi-layered opus of poetic symbolism, photographer Bettina Rheims and writer Serge Bramly evoke the City of Light in a completely novel way: this is a Paris of surrealist visions, confused identities, artistic phantoms, unseen manipulation, obsession, fetish, and seething desire. Equal parts erotica, fashion shoot, art monograph, metaphysical mystery, social

and cultural archaeology of the French capital, and neo-noir arthouse lmRose, cest Paris is the steamy tale of twin sisters, known only as B and Rose, and a third principalthe city itself. An abduction leads to a detective story that unfolds in the streets, cafs, cabarets, museums, abandoned factories, and grand hotels of Paris. What happened to the missing sister? Was there a plot? Was she really kidnapped? Is she alive or dead? Is it in fact a case of mistaken identity? Rheims and Bramly create a series of extraordinary tableaux suggesting all these possibilities and many more, featuring a host of celebrity gures including Naomi

Campbell, Michelle Yeoh, Monica Bellucci, Charlotte Rampling, Valrie Lemercier, Ins Sastre, Anna Mouglalis, Audrey Marnay, Anthony Delon, Rona Hartner, Jean-Pierre Kalfon, Azzedine Alaa, Louise Bourgoin, and Hlna Noguerra. Fetishistically boxed up in a retro attach case are souvenirs of this curious tale: a rose, a mask, an Eiffel Towel statuette (perhaps a murder weapon?), a booklet, a DVD, and of course the photo book itself. Invoke your inner detective: set the case before you, ip open the rusty latches, and devour the evidence.

Rydens old masterly technique draws you in with its glazed-donut sheen. The Huffington Post, New York

Mark Rydens carnival of curiosities


Blending themes of pop culture with techniques reminiscent of the old masters, Mark Ryden has created a singular style that blurs the traditional boundaries between high and low art. His work rst garnered attention in the 1990s, when he ushered in a new genre of painting, Pop Surrealism, dragging a host of followers in his wake. He has trumped the initial surrealist strategies by choosing subject matter loaded with cultural connotation. Rydens vocabulary ranges from cryptic to cute, treading a ne line between nostalgic clich and disturbing archetype. Seduced by his innitely detailed and meticulously glazed surfaces, the viewer is confronted with the juxtaposition of the childhood innocence and the mysterious recesses of the soul. A subtle disquiet inhabits his paintings; the work is achingly beautiful as it hints at darker psychic stuff beneath the surface of cultural kitsch. In Rydens world cherubic girls rub elbows with strange and mysterious gures. Ornately carved frames lend the paintings a baroque exuberance that adds gravity to their enigmatic themes. Complex in its arcane and idiosyncratic subject matter, Rydens work can leave no viewer unmoved. Pinxit, whose title refers to the Latin term meaning painted by, is organized by the themes of Rydens major exhibitionsThe Meat Show, Bunnies & Bees, The Tree Show, and so onand includes collected essays by Yoshitomo Nara, Carlo McCormick, and others, and a new essay by culture critic Kristine McKenna. Rydens paintings and drawings are reproduced using the nest techniques available in this oversize edition, which includes two vertical and ve horizontal fold-outs that open up to a staggering 150 cm (59 inches) across. Many books have been published on Mark Ryden before, but none like this large-format monograph, released in a boxed Collectors Edition of 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by the artist; and also available in an Art Edition of only 50 copies, which come with an eight-color serigraph, Eye of Eternity. This sweeping retrospective brings together nearly two decades worth of Mark Rydens paintings and works on paper, broadening the horizons of his uncanny universe and bringing it to the world, one big page at a time.

The man who launched the Golden Age of album cover design

Alex Steinweiss. Inventor of the Modern Album Cover

Columbia Masterworks was the name of the label that Steinweiss designed for numerous covers. And such is this book, a masterwork. Jazzpodium, Berlin

Visualizing Music
The man who created the Album Cover
You know about design. You can cite all kinds of graphic artists. But you probably dont know about Alex Steinweiss, and you should. He invented the album cover as we know it, creating a new graphic art form. In 1940, as Columbia Records young new art director, he pitched a novel idea: Why not replace the standard plain-brown wrapper with an eye-catching illustration? The company took a chance, and within months record sales increased by over 800%. His covers for Columbiacombining bold typography with modern, elegant illustrationstook the industry by storm and revolutionized the way records were sold. For over three decades, Steinweiss made thousands of original artworks for classical, jazz, and pop record covers for Columbia, Decca, London, and Everest; as well as logos, labels, advertising material, even his own typeface, the Steinweiss Scrawl. He launched the golden age of album cover design and inuenced generations of designers to follow. Less well knownbut included hereare his posters for the U.S. Navy; packaging and label design for liquor companies; lm title sequences; as well as his ne art. Includes an essay by design historian Steven Heller; Steinweiss personal recollections from an epic career; and extensive ephemera from the Steinweiss archive, most of it never before published. The artist: The father of record design, Alex Steinweiss singlehandedly invented the album cover in 1940, at the tender age of 23. He went on to make thousands of classical, jazz, and pop covers for Columbia, London, Decca, and Everest and his modern designs graced the packaging, logos, and covers of dozens of distilleries, lm studios, and magazines. His work earnt him an AIGA Medal and the Art Directors Hall of Fame lifetime achievement award. The Alex Awards for Excellence in album cover art were named in honor of Steinweiss. The authors: Steven Heller, co-chair of the School of Visual Arts MFA Designer as Author Program, writes the Visuals column for The New York Times Book Review, and is the author of 120 books on design, illustration, and satiric art. Kevin Reagan is a triple Grammy Award-winning art director/ designer, also honored by the AIGA, Print, and Communication Arts. As former art director of Geffen, MCA, and Maverick, he designed packages for Madonna, Beck, Sonic Youth, and many others.

 The most important part in doing album cover art is that the music have a story. Firebirdis all story with many images...something to hold on to.

The summer of Summers


The Police on tour photographed by guitarist Andy Summers
Limited to 1,500 copies, each numbered and signed by the artist. Packaged in a slipcase. Contains over 600 photographs personally selected f rom the photographers archive of over 25,000 thousand negatives (198083). Most photos are previously unpublished, and many of them have never even been printed prior to this project.

Ill be watching you. Inside the Police, 198083 Andy Summers / Hardcover in slipcase, 27 x 34 cm (10.6 x 13.4 in.), 378 pages $ 1,000 | 750 | 650

In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking black and white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the bands guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, its truethe man responsible for the guitar lick from Every Breath You Take was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift for composition and mood that allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police better than anyone else could have. This book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded the band working and partyingthe proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and rollincluding rehearsals and recording sessions with band-mates Sting and Stewart Copeland; life on the road with other groups including The Go-Gos, XTC, and The B-52s; and exclusive back-stage

and on-stage footage from concerts including Plaza de Toros (Barcelona, 1980), Budokan (Tokyo, 1981), Wembley Stadium (London, 1981), and Shea Stadium (New York, 1983). He also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passers-by in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Containing over 600 photos and lled with diary-style entries, Ill Be Watching You is a sumptuous volume beating with musical energy, nostalgia, and atmospheric beauty. A must for photo buffs and Police fans alike. The artist: While Andy Summers is best known as the guitarist of The Police (1977 86), he has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career with contemporary instrumental music that, like his work with Sting and Stewart Copeland, draws on his love of jazz, world, classical music, and his fascination with creating sonic textures. His post-Police years have produced more than two dozen solo albums, soundtracks, and collaborations, plus hundreds of inter-

national concerts, and induction to both the Guitar Player Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Summerss parallel passion for photography has led him to document subjects ranging from rural communities throughout Southeast Asia to timeless noir-style street scenes in cities around the world. His photographs have been shown in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Paris and London, and his books include Throb (1983), the Ralph Gibson collaboration Light Strings: Impressions of the Guitar (2004), and the memoir One Train Later (2006).

Eames, as well as those of his close friend, Richard Neutra, was rst brought to light by Shulmans photography. The clarity of his work demanded that architectural photography had to be considered as an independent art form. Each Shulman image unites perception and understanding for the buildings and their place in the landscape. The precise compositions reveal not just the architectural ideas behind a buildings surface, but also the visions and hopes of an entire age. A sense of humanity is always present in his work, even when the human gure is absent from the actual photographs. Today, a great many of the buildings documented by Shulman have disappeared or been crudely converted, but the thirst for his pioneering images is stronger than ever before.

American photographer Julius Shulmans images of Californian architecture have burned themselves into the retina of the 20th century. A book on modern architecture without Shulman is inconceivable.

Shooting Taxi Driver


By Martin Scorsese
This is the summer of 2010, and Im in London shooting a movie. Thirty-ve years ago, I was in New York shooting a very different kind of movie, during a very different era. And it was a very different New York. The city is clean and becalmed nowa nice place to visit with your kids, do some shopping, see the sights. Thirty-ve years ago, it wasnt. The city was in dire straits, right on the edge of bankruptcy, and severe cuts had been made in sanitation, police service, and the subwaysin fact, the famous issue of the Daily News with the headline Ford to City: Drop Dead came out when we were editing. For many who lived in the ve boroughs, it was a desperate time, and you could feel it out there, day and night. For us, everything in Paul Schraders brilliant scriptthe loneliness, the paranoia, the feeling of barren, dirty streets lled with angry peoplewas magnied. New York had become a nightmare version of itself, and we lived and breathed it, walked and drove through it, let our story become infected and overwhelmed by it, just like Travis Bickle. I made Taxi Driver with some old friends and collaboratorsRobert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Jodie Fosterand new ones like Schrader, Cybill Shepherd, Albert Brooks, and the DP, Michael Chapman. Thirty-ve years later, New York has changed; weve all changed. And some of the people who made Bernard Herrmann, who passed away in his sleep hours after recording the nal notes of our score ... Peter Boyle, a remarkable actor ... Julia Phillips, one of the producers ... Joe Spinell, who had only recently started to act in movies and who had himself gotten a hack license to make ends meet ... my old dear friend Vic Argo ... and Gene Palma, the strange street drummer with the slicked hair. Every last one of them was crucial, in one way or another, to the texture of this movie, a movie that none of the studios had wanted to touch. I put everything of myself into Taxi Driver. Many of us did. We wouldnt have had it any other way.
Taxi Driver possible are gone now. The great

The Taxi Driver screenplay seemed very close to me. It was as if I wrote it, thats how strongly I feel about it.

No one expected TASCHENs re-edition of The Curse of Lono to end up being Hunter S. Thompsons swan song, and his sudden death the month before its release makes the event a bittersweet one. The Curse of Lono is to Hawaii what Fear and Loathing was to Las Vegas: the crazy tales of a journalists coverage of a news event that ends up being a wild ride to the dark side of Americana. Originally published in 1983, Curse features all of the zany, hallucinogenic wordplay and feral artwork for which the Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman duo became known and loved. This curious book, considered an oddity among Hunters oeuvre, has been long out of print, prompting collectors to search high and low for an original copy. Resurrected by TASCHEN in a bigger size with splendid,

full-color illustrations, this very special edition is limited to 1000 copies, numbered and hand-signed by Steadman and Thompson. The author: Legendary author Hunter S. Thompson (19372005) developed a style of writing about American life and politics that was so acerbic and over-the-top, it earned its own nickname: gonzo journalism. His magazine articles and booksof which he penned nearly a dozen, including Hells Angels, The Rum Diary, Songs for the Doomed, The Great Shark Hunt, and the monumental Fear and Loathing in Las Vegasinuenced a generation of writers and established his voice as an essential part of Americas socio-political fabric. Portrayed on the silver screen by Bill

Murray (Where the Buffalo Roam, 1980) and Johnny Depp (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 1998), Thompson was a wild character whose persona was inseparable from his often semi-autobiographical writing. True to his image, he once said, I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but theyve always worked for me. The illustrator: Ralph Steadman is best known for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson. He is also a printmaker (his prints include a series of etchings on writers from William Shakespeare to William Burroughs). His own books include the lives of Sigmund Freud and Leonardo da Vinci and The Big I Am, the story of God.

The Tillmans portfolio


Life as Wolfgang sees it

Limited to 500 numbered copies, signed by Wolfgang Tillmans

Over a period of more than two decades, Wolfgang Tillmans has explored the medium of photo-imaging with greater range than any other artist of his generation. From snapshots of his friends to abstract images made in a darkroom without a camera or works made with a photocopier, he has pushed the photographic process to its outer limits in myriad ways. For this project, Tillmans turned away from the self-reexive exploration of the photography medium that had occupied him for several years by focusing his lens on the outside worldfrom London and Nottingham to Tierra del Fuego, Tasmania, Saudi Arabia, and Papua New Guinea. He describes this new phase simply as trying out what the camera can do for me, what I can do for it. The result is a powerful and singular view of life today in diverse parts of the world, seen from many angles. Says Tillmans, My travels are aimless as such, not looking for predetermined results, but hoping to nd subject matter that in some way or other speaks about the time Im in.

This Art Edition consists of 72 photos printed on 24 folded sheets, delivered in a signed and numbered portfolio. Tillmansselected photographs from the book edition and recontextualised them on 24 large format folded sheets, each sheet becoming a large picture object with front, centerfold, and back. On some, the front and back form a whole picture when unfolded. The artist also chose some details which he enlarged to the full potential of information and detail available. Says Tillmans, This is the rst time Im doing an oversized publication; in this case, the sheets are not boundinstead they stay light and it is almost like handling actual prints of mine. This Art Edition includes some of the content of the corresponding book, as well as some new photographs not featured in the book.

Olga is back! After a rst foray with Bettina Rheims for the 2008 limited-edition smash hit The Book of Olga, now she teams up with Ellen von Unwerth for The Story of Olga, a photographic narrative tracing the journey of a young widow, Olga, who after the death of her wealthy, elderly husband, is overtaken by an insatiable lust. She sear-ches for love only to nd it in the arms of an unlikely source, far from the

riches and extravagance to which she is accustomed. It is Olgas quest that makes this fairy tale highly untraditional: she is a heroine who is not afraid of her lust, and it is her sensuality that leads her to the happy ending she so desires. Set in a glorious chteau, replete with all the trappings of wealth and glamor, this collaboration between Ellen von Unwerth and Olga Rodionova brings to

life the enviable luxury of both fairy tales and modern desire. The rst Olga book sold out in record timehurry if you dont want to miss this chance to call Olga yours!

Fashions most beloved upholder of rened decadence and the most exciting couturier in business is known around the globe simply by his rst name. Only a few years after opening his fashion house in Rome in 1959, Valentino was already at the height of success, counting Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy, and Audrey Hepburn among his devotees. Over forty years later, not much has changedhes still dressing the top celebrities, from Gwyneth Paltrow to J.Lo, though now his business is a major economic force in Italy and his fashion house is among the most famous in the world. Valentino has always designed clothes for glamorous and sophisticated women, never

wavering from his signature style even when grunge, deconstruction, and other passing fads were all the rage. Though his couture division almost never makes a prot (his ready-to-wear lines are what fuel the business), his heart is most solidly devoted to the magnicent haute couture gowns that earned him his reputation as fashions most talented dressmaker. This luxurious limited-edition publication renders homage to Valentinos illustrious career via a copious selection of images from his archives, including drawings, magazine shoots, advertisements, portraits of Valentino, and documentary photographs; presented chronologically, the visual mate-

rial is accompanied by a vast array of newspaper and magazine articles about Valentino throughout the years. Text also includes Vanity Fair writer Matt Tyrnauers interviews with twenty of Valentinos closest collaborators and friends as well as an appreciation of Valentino by International Herald Tribunes fashion writer Suzy Menkes. All of these elements add up to an in-depth look at the man, his lifestyle, and his geniusa book more comprehensive and stunning than one could hardly dare to dream of. After all, what could be a more tting tribute to the work of Valentino than a book as beautiful and luxurious as one of his gowns?

she was there for the sex more than the money. Fans, awed by her ferocious onscreen sexuality, made her a top box office draw and Americas rst Latina star. Retired since 1986, Vanessa del Rio remains a sexual icon who cuts across all ethnic boundaries. What her fans dont know is that her real life was, and is, as wild as anything she did on lm. In this sumptuous over-sized volume, TASCHEN celebrates a remarkably candid, condent and exuberantly sexual woman.

If you arent already convinced, this book will end all doubt that there could ever be another woman like Vanessa del Rio.

Back in 1974, the sexual revolution was in full swing and the adult entertainment business was on the verge of becoming Big Business. Deep Throat had created Americas rst porn star in 1972, but by 1974 Linda Lovelace was already retired and the industry was seeking the next big thing. Vanessa del Rio should have been that thing, except in 1974 there were no ethnic sex stars. Undeterred, Vanessa took any role theyd give her, because, amazingly,

 Wool started his career with drip paintings, and he has progressed into ever more complex strategies of abstraction and the articulation of ephemeral concepts. Hes done all this after the nominal end of abstract expressionism, the perceived end of abstract art, and the declared end of painting. Quite a coup, and hes getting away with it beautifully.

 Wools paintings seem like an indescribable urban cool, a tense fusion of intellect and emotion, control and chaos.
Katrina M. Brown

In-your-face, brutally pleasing, achingly simple, deceptively frank, the work of Christopher Wool is so very New York. Though he owes a debt to abstract expressionism and pop art, he completely transcends even demolishesthese genres. Whether its a text-based painting or an abstract spray-painted piece, his work is immediately engaging. Wool questions painting, like many other artists in his generation, but he doesnt provide any easy answers. The text on one of his word paintings, The harder you look the harder you look, provides an excellent example of how he states the obvious whilst provoking us to think deeper about what seems obvious. Christopher Wool became known in the mid-1980s with all-over paintings, produced with the rubber rollers commonly used to simulate decorative wall-paper patterns on walls. By 1988 he had hit stride with his dry, dead-pan word paintings (Trbl, Riot, Sell the house, sell the car, sell the kids), while continuing to explore the possibilities of painting. Working with a

mostly black-and-white palette, he starts from abstract lines drawn with a spray gun or layered stock images, overpainting silkscreen and wiping out images with a widening variety of media, producing paintings and drawings in a process that can involve photography, silkscreen, and recently the computer. Exploring Wools work in close to 450 pages, this monograph is staggering in its scope and depth. All work phases are covered in large-scale reproductions and accompanied by installation photos, many taken by Wool himself. Editor Hans Werner Holzwarth has previously collaborated on several catalogs and artists books with Wool. Essays and analyses by scholars and writers close to the artist make this book a great read as well as a denitive study of the story so far. The authors: Eric Banks, former senior editor of Artforum, is a writer based in New York. Ann Goldstein is Senior Curator at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Richard Hell, writer and musician,

is the author of the novels Go Now and Godlike, and of the collection Hot and Cold. Jim Lewis is the author of three novels most recently, The King is Deadand numerous essays on the visual arts. Glenn OBrien is a New York based writer, currently featured as The Style Guy for GQ. Anne Pontgnie is an independent curator and art critic who lives in Brussels. The editor: Book designer and editor Hans Werner Holzwarth started out as a typographer and communication designer, then co-led his own company for corporate design. Since 1992, Holzwarth has focused on book design, collaborating with Darren Almond, Glenn Brown, Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Marepe, Boris Mikhailov, Issey Miyake, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, John Waters, Christopher Wool, and many others. For TASCHEN he also edited Jeff Koons and designed TASCHEN Collection and Martin Kippenberger.

My How SUMO came into the world


and how everyone can prot
Alas, we cannot take credit for inventing the folio book, or as we like to call it, the XXL book (commonly referred to as the SUMO). But thank the heavens (and Helmut Newton) we were able to make a modern success story by reintroducing this rare species, that has been known among bibliophiles well over 500 years. This new direction may seem to clash with our roots and our company credo: to democratize great books and make them affordable and accessible all over the world at unbeatable prices. Worry not, dear friendsread on for an explanation of how we start out with XXL books and end up with affordable books. a.d.
Archivio fotografico Musei Vaticani. Per gentile concessione dei Musei Vaticani, Roma

Big, bold, bright!

1511 a.d.
Almost all the TaSCHEN books are things of beauty as well as fine reading. My favorite so far is the large, fantastically illustrated 75 Years of DC Comics by Paul Levitz, which is both an eyefilling credit to its subject and to its quality-oriented publisher.

1999

Michelangelo, Libyan Sibyl

Since the TASCHEN adventure began in the early 1980s, it has been our goal to make the greatest books in the world. Whatever the subject and whatever the retail pricefrom $10 to $10,000we strive to produce, design, and package each of our books beautifully, with a great deal of care and attention to detail. The collectors who buy an XXL limited edition book early on will have, in addition to a rare and exceptional book, the added benefit of seeing their asset appreciate; our XXL books have been known to have their value tripled, quadrupled, or even quintupled and even more within a short lapse of time. A few examples: Helmut Newtons SUMO, whose market value went from $1,500 in 1999 to $15,000 today, Peter Beard, which went from $1,800 to $7,000 within few years, and Jeff Koons, which shot up from $1,000 to $4,500 within a few months.

Small, smart, smashing!


While the production of these books requires a no-limit budget policy, they make their Helmut Newton, proud owners feel good SUMO, (see page 210) about their investments and their astute buying policy. They also allow us to let book lovers with less extravagant budgets benefit from the generous and lavish production cost that went into making the XXL book. Once the limited edition is sold out, we offer a smaller, condensed, yet equally well-produced edition with a much gentler price tag. Its a win-win situation, and we all live happily ever after.

2008 a.d.
TaSCHEN for me takes book publishing to another level today. It integrates high quality in their printing and production and context in the themes of their publications. They have a strong sense of the now and what is happening. My book of choice is Kate Moss by Mario Testino.

Well, as a hard-core romantic I have TASCHEN books scattered all about my homes. They are both a pleasure to read and very decorative. And I love them all. Still, I must confess that my love of the LaChapelles might be the biggest.

Peter Beard, (see page 54)

How SUMO came into the world

TASCHEN projects are like thousand-dollar fanzines: obsessive, Quote Graphis, New York exhaustive, and compulsively readable. Graphis, New York

I never tire of ipping through this book with its exquisitely detailed drawings of palm trees in countless shades of green. Nature is a great source of inspiration to me and I feel like Im diving into the tropics and the world of that passionate botanist. The large format of this beautifully designed book does justice to its subject.

All suspicions of Stanley Kubricks genius are confirmed when leafing through the book of his unmade movie Napoleon. Its funny, frustrating, and as big and heavy as the film could have been. And I love the book!!!!

I love the The Stanley Kubrick Archives book. Kubrick has always been a huge influence on me and my work, particularly 2001 (we used screenshots from the final scene of that film as reflections in early renderings of my pieces). The book is really well-designed and thought out, organized like a reference book, which is how I suppose Kubrick himself probably would have done it.

GOAT is my favorite book. I think it is the most extra vagant and exaggerated design book. It is a physical book to honor the genius of a boxer, Muhammad Ali.

GOAT! My life motto Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!

To browse a book published by TASCHEN is like walking in a garden full of surprises. It takes time to absorb every fragrance, every landscape, every owerso dont rush while reading it! It stimulates and provokes all our sensesnot in a very conventional way, but in the same way a work of art lights up your imagination.

Impossible to know what is more mirac u lous: Mondrian as a creative math teacher in 1847 or TASCHEN publishing Euclid on geometry in 2010, but this is a profoundly exciting book to (re)appear at this point in the blurry age of the web: lucidity made manifest in language that still dazzles in its clarity 160 years after its initial publication

There are many ways to tell the classic fairy tales, and theyre not always so nice. TASCHENs edition of the Brothers Grimmbold and beautiful and true to the originalcomes along at a good time for my three young children. It is so much fun to read this book out loud. The design is thoughtful. Its not too big and not too small. And, as my oldest daughter said, its pretty too.
Everything around me inspires me. Documentary lms instead of block-busters. Anything published by TASCHEN and ea markets. Annie Lennox, featured in The Observer

My favorite TASCHEN book is

Of all the thousands of iconic books produced by TASCHEN, their greatest accomplishment is photographer Helmut Newtons SUmo. The sheer size and scale was an achievement in itself as it is the largest and most expensive book of the 20th century. In order to produce such a book, one needs vision and courage, not to mention the technical side of manufacturing and marketing.

If I had to pick a favorite TASCHEN book, it would be Tadao Andos Art Edition. Since there are only 300 of them existing in the world, my runnerup would be anything else by Tadao Ando in the catalogue. Ive been an obsessive admirer of Tadao Andos art and architecture for decades, and the TaSCHEN monographs dedicated to his work are remarkable.

Looking at Linda McCartney, Life in Photographs, its no wonder passion rhymes with TaSCHEN. I have been hooked for years and I am just getting started.

My favorite among the numerous books by TaSCHEN is the facsimile edition of A Chronicle of the Crusades. It makes me co-owner of one of the most beautifully illuminated codices of the late Middle Ages. But what makes TaSCHEN so stunning: they seem to cover everything from Helmut Newton to the Circus and Caravaggio.

I love The Book of Symbols. Its a mystic encyclopedia that takes you on a journey throughout time and teaches you new ways to see the world.

This beautiful, exuberant book is to all art book collections what palms are to all other trees in exotic forests. These exquisite, intimate drawings of palm trees make this one of my favorites in the TASCHEN collection.

I love the TaSCHEN Anatomy bookevery day it helps me find parts of my body I didnt know existed.

OK, Im thinking how do they do it? My latest TaSCHEN book, Menu Design in America by that amazing Jim Heimann, is just another reason I cant wait to get my hands on their next gorgeous book.

My favorite TASCHEN book is

The Big Book of Pussy is the most shocking and beautiful and scary TASCHEN book ever published. Putting it out on your coffee table will demand a startled reaction from even your most blas visitor.

My favorite Book is GOAT! It represents Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali in every way, giving us great insight into what we have never seen before of one the most amazing boxers in history, as well as peacemaker and hostage-deal breaker!

How do I choose my favorite? I love my Diego Rivera, my Peter Beard, my Edward Lear. The Parrots but I keep returning to my little chunky TASCHEN edition of The Description of Egyptmy copy is really beat up. Its an orientalist visual ravishment.

There are all kinds of publishers. In general, they publish books. Normal! Benedikt Taschen creates book-objects; always very beautiful. Normal: Its his dream. This time we move beyond the norm, we enter into magic. A book, a publisher: We still dont know which dreamed the other.

Rauch is so rare that this book is the only opportunity to go deeply on his crazy soul and the pages are so big that you can cut one, hang it on the wall of your imaginary museum and believe it is yours.

WOW!! I love this new Quaintance book. Its very beautiful. Bravo!

Turning the black fabric cover, I found rows of equations and diagrams of primitive geometry continuing across every page of the fivecentimeter-thick volume. It is a serious text of mathematics as its title suggests, but to me it is more beautiful than any of the art books that had been on display in that store. What I had found in its pages was definitive proof of the existence of a precious power held by humans that we call Reason.

My two favorites at the moment are Cosmic Communist Constructions with its post-sputnik megalomania, while hidden within the architectures DNA, almost unconsciously, is a remnant of Socialist purposeglorious, excessive, and tragicand Caravaggio, for some of the same reasons.

My favorite TASCHEN book is

The name TASCHEN signies beauty, culture and modernity. Quote Graphis, New York Each of their books is an object of desire and a world event. Madame Figaro, Paris

The Christo and Jeanne-Claude monograph, with the most engaging images by Wolfgang Volz, vividly documents their process and the profoundly intuitive, provocative nature of their work, where integrity and materiality play a critical role.

Dennis Hoppers photos represent everyday moments of the American culture, theyre almost like a journal. And theyre taken by one of its protagonists, which means a unique point of view. Hopper was very talented and intuitive.

The most detailed celebration of a person in photos and writing Ive ever read.

My favorite book is Funk & Soul Covers. It contains more stimuli than I could make use of in 20 years. That said, I dont really need stimulation if at all, then for purchasing records.

Every page of Modernist Cuisine has a surprise in store. Im a decent family chef myself, but the Ingredients and Preparations volume makes me feel like a stoneage person. Science serving pleasure, deep knowledge illustrated with glamorous photography its a Renaissance combination! This is not a cookbook, but a piece of art.

I think my favorite TASCHEN book is still the complete paintings of van Gogh which I always thought was an absolute bargain at $50.

G.O.A.T. The Greatest Of All Time. My Main Man Muhammad Ali.

Ive called Los Angeles home for more than four decades, and still I manage to discover more of it every time I open this TASCHEN book. It captures everything I love about my home Muscle Beach, palm trees, the Hollywood hills and even manages to show off some of the things I hate the fantastic map of the old, extensive public transit system that was dismantled and discarded reminds me of just how shortsighted my starstruck home can be. Benedikt Taschen did the impossible. He took a city obsessed with the hottest, newest things and managed to create a lasting and beautiful memory.

Without a doubt, MoonFire. If Norman Mailers extraordinary narrative about the Apollo 11 mission doesnt turn you on to space exploration, I dont know what will. Second, the photos are an incredible time capsule back to 1969. And third, I met my husband on the project. See, books really do bring people together!

Never mind Instagram, the iPhone, or digital photography, the Polaroid is the original instant art form that thanks to this book will never fade away.

The perfect combination of form and content is the most delightful thing about bookmaking and is wonderfully realized here. Llia and Sebastio Salgado raise the bar very high with the quality of their books, and with the massive GENESIS everything that came before has been outdone.

POpULaR CULTURE aND VINTaGE BOOK EDITOR

For me, its the wild and wonderful Renaissance manuscript, The Book of Miracles. Its incredibly exciting to see that these kinds of rare books are still being discovered. The artists mind is on re in these dramatic celestial images and doomsday renderings, and each is laced with a giddy delight in the hysteria of it all.

ART aND CLaSSICS EDITOR

Miraculous signs! Previously in a private collection, this spectacular Renaissance manuscript is made public for the rst time in a facsimile edition. The Book of Miracles illustrates myths, prophecies, and reports of calamitous events from over two millennia, in dramatic images that captivate the viewer with their expressive power and astonishing modernity.

bauhaus was my introduction to TASCHEN. I bought it at Tower Records in high school when it came out in 1991. Almost 25 years later it still stands the test of time.

One of my favorites is Racinets Complete Costume History. The illustrations are beautiful, as are the reproductions, and I can never get enough of looking at how people dressed at different periods throughout history.

I knew my age was creeping up on me when some 20 years ago my children started telling me I looked and acted like this guy on televisionHomer Simpson. Having no idea what they were referring to, I checked out this Simpson character and fell in love! This bumbling idiot was me! And he went on to become one of the greatest achievements in modern pop culture. A few years later I had the opportunity to meet Homers genius creator, Matt Groening, and to my surprise I discovered he had incorporated my new Hollywood Hills residence, the Chemosphere House, into a 1996 episode of the Simpsons (A Fish Called Selma aired on March 24, 1996). To my even greater surprise, Matt gave me a framed cel of the Chemosphere for my birthday which was promptly hung inside the real Chemosphere house. But that wonderful gift was eclipsed when I saw that a real TASCHEN store had opened in Springeld. WOO HOO! I felt like we had been knighted in pop culture!
