TASCHEN WISHLIST AND NEW RELEASES

my little "collection"
source: pic taken by me

Like most of you (I guess) I like reading and gazing at beautiful pictures/photography. Obviously, coffee-table books satisfy those passions of mine perfectly and I started to collect them a while ago. The topics of my choice are (of course) fashion, art, architecture and the like. All the coffee-table books I possess so far are from TASCHEN because I get good value for my money. Of course, there are other publishers which sell good illustrated books for a small price like Phaidon and Dumont which are on my other wishlists:) A few weeks ago, I received the new brochure from TASCHEN which reminds me of all the books I still want to get from TASCHEN.


Here are some upcoming titles:

- "Soul i-D" an "All-star contributions from the best creative minds of our time. The best of i-D's special projects including contributions from artists and designers such as David LaChapelle, John Galliano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller, and Terry Richardson. Soul i-D is a 600-page visual anthology of ideas and images featuring personal insights and contributions from some of the most creative names in contemporary fashion, music, art, and design." (source: http://www.taschen.com) - "Illustration Now"
- "Art Now Vol.2" (I have the 1st Volume and it's very good!)
- "Eugéne Atget"
- "Paris"


New titles:
- "Fashion Now 2"
- "Jeff Koons" (unfortunately not in my price range becauseits a limited and signed edition)

Besides those mentioned above my wishlist contains:

- "Dadaism"

- "Realism"

- "Surrealism"

- "Dalí"

- "Duchamp"

- "Magritte"

- "Hopper"

- "What great paintings say"
- "Film Noir"

- "Jeanloup Sieff"

- "Pierre & Gilles"

- "Fashion History"

- "Doisneau"
- "Helmut Newton: A Gun For Hire"

and some of their travel and city guids...


Which coffee-table books do you have or like to have? I'm thankful for any recommendations!



Wie (wahrscheinlich) die meisten von euch, lese ich gern und schau mir gern Bilder/Fotos an. Beides vereint findet man in Bildbänden und deshalb hab ich irgendwann eine kleine Leidenschaft für diese entwickelt. Meine bevorzugtenThemen sind natürlich Mode, Kunst Architektur etc. Die Bildbände, die ich bisher besitze sind vom TASCHEN Verlag, weil dort das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis meiner Meinung nach stimmt und die Themenauswahl mir sehr entgegen kommt. Natürlich gibt es noch andere Verlage wie Dumont oder Phaidon, bei denen das auch so ist, aber die stehen auf einer anderen Wunschliste:) Vor kurzem landete der neue Katalog von TASCHEN in meinem Briefkasten und das erinnerte mich an meine lange TASCHEN-Bücherwunschliste.

Dies sind ein paar der bald erscheinenden Titel:
- "Soul i-D" an "All-star contributions from the best creative minds of our time.
The best of i-D's special projects including contributions from artists and designers such as David LaChapelle, John Galliano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller, and Terry Richardson. Soul i-D is a 600-page visual anthology of ideas and images featuring personal insights and contributions from some of the most creative names in contemporary fashion, music, art, and design." (source: http://www.taschen.com) - "Illustration Now"
- "Art Now Vol.2" (Ich hab Band 1 und der ist ziemlich toll!)

- "Eugéne Atget"
- "Paris"


Gerade erschienene Titel:

- "Fashion Now 2"

- "Jeff Koons" (unfortunately not in my price range becauseits a limited and signed edition)


Abgesehen von den eben genannten Titeln möchste ich noch folgende:

- "Dadaism"

- "Realism"
- "Surrealism"

- "Dalí"

- "Duchamp"

- "Magritte"

- "Hopper"
- "What great paintings say"

- "Film Noir"

- "Jeanloup Sieff"

- "Pierre & Gilles"

- "Fashion History"

- "Doisneau"

- "Helmut Newton: A Gun For Hire"

und ein paar der Reise- und Städteführer...


Welche Bildbände habt ihr oder stehen auf eurer Wunschliste? Irgendwelche Tipps und Empfehlungen?

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
justification appeared to be on the net the
simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not
know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also
defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
