About Taschen

If you look hard enough, you might find a few books on Tuscan villas and Norman Rockwell prints in Taschen’s dizzying roster of art books, but you’re more likely to stumble onto <i>Christo and Jeanne-Claude</i> and <i>Design for Obama. Posters for Change: A Grassroots Anthology</i>. Founder Benedikt Taschen got his start selling comic books as a teenager, and while comics still make up part of Taschen’s business, the company has gained a global reputation for offering everything from travel guides, to pop culture, photography, and architecture tomes.

Past Sales Featuring Taschen

Sale Ended October 18, 2010


Taschen creates books for people who not only love reading about design and architecture, but love books that are, in themselves, design pieces. Taschen’s tomes deal with an enormous variety of sub-genres under the umbrella of all- things-cultural. If you want to start with the basics, go for their broader, overview titles like Architecture in the 20th Century, or their pictorial biographies like Jeff Koons. Beyond that, the list of topics is as wide as your interests, from vintage T-shirts to Diego Rivera’s murals.
