TASCHEN, founded as a small comic shop in Cologne in 1980, is today renowned around the world for publishing ambitious and accessible illustrated books on art, architecture, design, fashion, film, travel, pop culture and sexy subjects.
Since our adventure began over 35 years ago, we have always been committed to diversity, innovation, and excellence. Whatever the subject and whatever the price—from $10 to $10,000—we strive to treat every topic with the same respect, and to produce, design, and package each of our books beautifully and uniquely.
TASCHEN branded stores now operate in twelve cities around the world, retailing the full range of TASCHEN publications. From our game-changing Basic Art Series to collector's editions such as the David Hockney SUMO and the authorized illustrated history of the Rolling Stones, we aim to offer something for everyone in an eclectic, inclusive universe of lifelong cultural companions.
