TASCHEN, founded as a small comic shop in Cologne/Germany in 1980, is today renowned as the world’s leading publisher of illustrated books across art, architecture, design, fashion, film, travel, pop culture, and sexy subjects.

TASCHEN is committed to both diversity and excellence, treating each topic with the same respect, and producing, designing, and packaging each book beautifully and uniquely. The TASCHEN program ranges from the game-changing Basic Art Series, the most popular art book collection ever published, to luxurious Collector’s and Art Editions with such cultural luminaries as Annie Leibovitz, Naomi Campbell, David Bowie, and Gisele Bündchen.

As a global publishing house, TASCHEN branded stores now operate in 11 cities around the world, while the new TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles hosts rotating exhibitions coordinated with the publishing program.
