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.
