We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with TASCHEN that allows us to present a selection of their extraordinary books featuring visual artists to our worldwide art and design-loving collectors. This SUMO-sized retrospective presents the work of Annie Leibovitz and features some of the most famed actors, musicians, artists, writers, athletes, and businesspeople of our time. Choose one of four different cover photos: Keith Haring, Whoopi Goldberg, David Byrne or Patti Smith. This iconic portrait collection is presented with a Marc Newson-designed book stand and a supplementary essay compendium.
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) and also as an Art Edition (No. 1–1,000) with a fine art print, signed by Annie Leibovitz, and the full set of all four covers.
