Taschen Mario Testino. Private View
Taschen Mario Testino. Private View

When a photographer’s fame almost eclipses that of his A-list subjects, you know you’re talking Testino. This Collector’s Edition presents a sumptuous selection of studio work and candid shots, shimmering with pure Testino style. Highlights include a beaming Gwyneth Paltrow with her Oscar, a fur-cloaked Jennifer Lopez, and the unforgettable portraits of Diana, Princess of Wales. The mere mention of Mario Testino’s name evokes a rush of adrenalin in anyone that cares, even a bit, about the worlds of fashion and celebrity. So omnipresent is he at major magazine shoots and A-list events—an insider if ever there was one—that he has become a celebrity himself. The launch of Testino’s latest book, to celebrate his inaugural exhibition in China, brings together an exciting selection of his best studio work with glamorous examples of his candid shots. A beaming Gwyneth Paltrow clutching her freshly-won Oscar, a fur-cloaked Jennifer Lopez atop a commode, and the unforgettable portraits of royalty including Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons are just a few of the hundreds of iconic pictures that are brought together, for the first time, inside the book. Testino’s best recent advertising and fashion work rounds out the selection, making this a must-have collector’s item. Limited Collector’s Edition of 1,500 signed copies, each with lenticular cover portrait of Lady Gaga and delivered in an injection-molded plastic box.

Taschen The Rolling Stones
Taschen The Rolling Stones

The kind of fame and success The Rolling Stones have achieved in their 50-years and counting career is without parallel; their most famous riffs and catchiest lyrics are indelibly engraved in our collective memory. With their bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and mesmerizing off and onstage presence, the Stones redefined the music of the 1960s and 1970s and paved the way for rock as we know it today. They also set the standard for how a rock band should look and behave. Produced in close collaboration with the band, this book charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle in over 500 pages of photographs and illustrations, many previously unseen, and gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York and London adds an equally extraordinary, more private side to their story. For Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie this is their official photographic record. Produced in collaboration with the band and signed by all four members, this SUMO sized book charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle. With one-of-a-kind archival access, it features over 500 pages of incredible images, illustrations, and a foreword written by President Bill Clinton. Art Edition of 75 copies (No. 76–150), each with the print Keith playing the piano, Copenhagen (1965) signed by photographer Bent Rej. Each book will be hand-signed by the band members of the Rolling Stones: Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie!

Taschen Neil Leifer. Guts & Glory
Taschen Neil Leifer. Guts & Glory

Neil Leifer. Guts & Glory: The Golden Age of American Football 1958-1978 For this Collector’s Edition, master sports photographer Neil Leifer sifted through over 10,000 rolls of film, selecting his absolute best shots, including hundreds of previously unseen pictures, to trace pro football’s most memorable moments. From the Miami Dolphins’ perfect 1972 season to the Minnesota Vikings’ “Purple People Eaters”—it’s all here, complemented by Jim Murray’s top football columns of the era for complete guts and glory nostalgia. In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot—Alan Ameche’s game-winning “Sudden Death” touchdown—was Leifer’s 16th birthday. This game, called “The Greatest Ever Played,” signaled football’s emergence as America’s 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 first 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 film on the sport, including hundreds of previously unpublished pictures.  Limited Collector’s Edition of 1,500 copies, numbered and signed by Neil Leifer.

TASCHEN’s first ever SUMO publication for a painter, A Bigger Book is a majestic visual survey of David Hockney’s art. In it, Hockney takes stock of more than 60 years of work, from his teenage days at art school up to his recent extensive series of portraits, iPad drawings, and Yorkshire landscapes. Never before has Hockney’s oeuvre been published in such scope, with such investment from the artist, and on such an astonishing, immersive scale. Hockney himself is present in every aspect of the publication. He collaborated closely through all production stages and conceived of this book as a purely visual survey of more than 450 works prefaced by a handwritten programmatic statement. As an artist who rarely looks back, the vast volume is as much his own personal review as it is a definitive record for art lovers all over the world. “I don’t tend to live in the past,” he comments, “Working on this book, I see quite how much I have done.” The book’s sumptuous portfolio is supplemented by an illustrated chronology of more than 600 pages, contextualizing Hockney’s art with drawings, graphic work, portrait photos, and text based on the artist’s own writings as well as contemporary reviews.

Taschen Annie Leibovitz: The Collector’s Edition
Taschen Annie Leibovitz: The Collector’s Edition

When Benedikt Taschen asked the most important portrait photographer working today to collect her pictures in a SUMO-sized book, she was intrigued and challenged. The project took several years to develop and proved to be revelatory. Annie Leibovitz drew from over 40 years of work, starting with the viscerally intimate reportage she created for Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s and extending through the more stylized portraiture of her work for Vanity Fair and Vogue. Celebrated images such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono entwined in a last embrace are printed alongside portraits that have rarely, and sometimes never before, been seen. Annie Leibovitz was able to present some of her famous group portraits in a format that proves that she is the master of the genre. Her pictures are at once intimate and iconic, wide-ranging stylistically and also uniquely hers. Annie Leibovitz is often imitated, particularly by younger photographers, but her work is somehow immediately recognizable. The bookends of the Leibovitz collection are the black-and-white photograph of Richard Nixon’s helicopter lifting off from the White House lawn after he resigned as president in 1974 and the formal color portrait of Queen Elizabeth II taken in a drawing room of Buckingham Palace in 2007. In between are portraits that make up a family album of our time: actors, dancers, comedians, musicians, artists, writers, performance artists, journalists, athletes, businesspeople. Performance and power are recurring themes. A supplementary book contains essays by Annie Leibovitz, Graydon Carter, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Paul Roth and short texts describing the subjects of each of the over 250 photographs. • Limited to a total of 10,000 signed and numbered copies, this book is available as Collector’s Edition (No. 1,001–10,000, our 5,565) and also as Art Edition (No. 1–1,000) with a fine art print, signed by Annie Leibovitz, and the full set of all four dust jackets. • Frontcover: Keith Haring, New York City, 1986 • Both editions come with a tripod book stand designed by Marc Newson.

Taschen Marilyn & Me
Taschen Marilyn & Me

“You’re already famous, now you’re going to make me famous,” photographer Lawrence Schiller said to Marilyn Monroe as they discussed the photos he was about to shoot of her. “Don’t be so cocky,” Marilyn replied, “photographers can be easily replaced.” The year was 1962, and Schiller, 25, was on assignment for Paris Matchmagazine. He already knew Marilyn — they had met on the set of Let’s Make Love — but nothing could have prepared him for the day she appeared nude during a swimming pool scene for the motion pictureSomething’s Got to Give. Marilyn & Me is an intimate story of a legend before her fall and a young photographer on his way to the top. Schiller’s original text and extraordinary photographs—over two thirds of which have never or rarely been published—take 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. Now, 50 years later, TASCHEN is publishing Lawrence Schiller’s story as a signed, numbered monograph limited to 1,962 copies, for the year of Monroe’s untimely death. Schiller’s 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 final struggle. · Collector’s Edition of 1,712 numbered copies (No. 251–1,962), all signed by the photographer. Also available in two Art Editions of 125 copies, each with an original photograph · The book and clamshell box are covered in a custom woven duchesse silk from one of the world’s most distinguished silk mills, Taroni, of Como, Italy · Printed on archival paper · Four foldouts, with one gatefold measuring a full 110 cm (44 in.) across · Translation booklet of the text available in German, French and Spanish with purchase upon request
