“TASCHEN is trail-blazing. It has revolutionised the illustrated-book market: in fact, I’d 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 collector’s edition catalogue, covering over two decades of the limited publications that have helped to make TASCHEN what it is today. From our first collector’s 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

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 significantly 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 Design by Andy Disl & Anna-Tina Kessler Text by Alison Castle Directed and produced by Benedikt Taschen © 2013 TASCHEN Printed in Italy

COllectOR’s EDitiOns 1991–today
All titles chronologically: pages 6–29 All titles alphabetically: pages 30–321

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 Artist’s 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.”

Today’s value

“ TASCHEN books are almost designed to be collectible. It’s very common for a TASCHEN book to gain value almost instantly.”
—Richard David, Abebooks, the world’s most popular platform for antiquarian books

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 price—from $10 to $10,000—we 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 benefit of seeing their asset appreciate; our collector’s editions have been known to have their value multiply, in some cases reaching ten times their original price.

Capturing the perfect wave
Tapping into the archives of America’s most important surf photographer of the ’60s and ’70s

LeRoy Grannis. Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s

–– Collector’s edition limited to 1,000 copies, numbered and signed by LeRoy Grannis –– Ed. Jim Heimann / Steve Barilotti / Hardcover in slipcase, 39.6 x 33 cm (15.6 x 13 in.), 278 pages

$ 1,500 | € 1,000 | £ 900


At a time when surfing is more popular than ever, it’s fitting to look back at the years that brought the sport into the mainstream. Developed by Hawaiian islanders over five centuries ago, surfing began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s, taking America— and the world—by storm. Surfing 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 Grannis’s personal archives, showcases an impressive selection of surf photographs—from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore. An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change

film 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 Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era—a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best. The photographer: LeRoy Grannis’s initial foray into surfing began at age 14 with a six-foot slab of pine, but it wasn’t until the age of 42 that he picked up a camera and made a career out of it. Under doctor’s 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 Surfing 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 magazine’s globe-roaming editor at large, photojournalist Steve Barilotti has made it his business to document the sport, art, and lore of surfing. 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 surfing’s boomer golden age through the perceptive lens of Grannis, . . . ‘greatest ever’ in the world of surfing photography.”
— The Bulletin, Sydney

Abu Dhabi, Performing Arts Center, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE, 2008– © Zaha Hadid Architects

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 firmly established among the élite 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 Hadid’s career – including not only buildings but also furniture and interior designs – with in-depth texts, spectacular photos, and her own drawings. Also included is a special section with translucent vellum paper allowing multiple layers of designs to be viewed at once or separately.

–– Limited to 1,000 copies, numbered and signed by both Naomi Harris and Richard Prince

Richard Prince discovered Naomi Harris in TASCHEN’s 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 protégé. 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 I’m looking at is mostly you ‘outside’ the picture looking at what you’re photographing … half-naked, all naked, taking these photos of next-door neighbors having sex …” He refers to Harris’s secret for winning the confidence 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 Harris’s America Swings as “something that’s gloriously alternative, that isn’t rentable, that can’t be downloaded, that’s uninhibited and

filled 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 York’s 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.

“ These people are definitely having better sex than the rest of us.”
