Hi,
I just founfd the price of "The Making of 2001" has risen from 500€ to 750. Is this right? Could you please explain the rise in price?

Dear Sergio,
thank you for message.
The price augmentation is indeed due to a decline in stocks, a process that is common to all our limited edition books (and any art or collectible business), and benefits all those who have made their decision early: once we're sold out, our books often climb to even much higher prices.
All preorders made through taschen.com will of course be fulfilled, we're extremely happy how many devoted Kubrick fans have taken the opportunity to secure a copy at the entry price.
Thank you for your consideration, best wishes,
Marie

But without having had the chance to even see it it in an actual store, this procedure seems rather daring and unfair.....

Also very interesting to see the tight-fisted distribution of this title. It doesn't seem to be available to ANY third-party vendors.
4.  Florian, TASCHEN Editor, Cologne, Deutschland, 30. Juli 2014
Dear collector,
please note that this is common practice on all our limited titles (only distributed through TASCHEN's own channels) – we will make all efforts to communicate this even more clearly in the future!
Best wishes,
Floran

Frankly, I can't remember a time when the price of a Taschen book increased during the pre-order period. Afterwards, yes, but never before. Looks like a shameless money grab to me.

Taschen should get their story straight. Florian says that Collector's Editions are never distributed to websites like B&N and amazon, but come on: anyone with a computer can find your in-print limited editions all over webstores and at times available at deep discounts (America Swings is on amazon right now at 47% off the list price, Rose C'est Paris at 15%, Christopher Wool at 5% off, and so on). Debra, in another post, explains that B&N did have some copies and they just sold out.

People were trying to buy the book at a discount, and you said no. You have every right to demand full price from your expensive books, but your history with discounts sends your loyal collectors a different kind of message.

Have just received three books that I purchased in the sale and have been left speechless as usual. Amazingly shot and so inspiring. I don't suppose you have any plans to do a book or series on dance (Cedar Lake or Pina Bausch for example)?

mi piacerebbe un'edizione Taschen dell'opera del matematico Luca Pacioli "De Divina Proportione" contenente anche diverse raffigurazioni di poliedri disegnati da Leonardo da Vinci: esistono già alcune edizioni di questo lavoro ed un fac-simile molto ben realizzato ma putroppo in vendita ad un prezzo piuttosto alto e quindi destinato ad un pubblico di nicchia: spero in una grande diffusione di quest'opera della fine del lontano 1400 pur sempre affascinate e con il valore aggiunto dei disegni geometrici di Leonardo! grazie e buon lavoro

Gentile L. Mencarelli, La ringrazio per il suo messaggio. Conosciamo l'opera di Pacioli e tempo fa avevamo discusso una possibile reedizione. Ma le edizioni esistenti, come lei scrive, sono veramente ben fatte e perciò non abbiamo realizzato questo progetto. Ma non si sa mai forse nel futuro ritorneremo. Cordiali saluti, Petra Lamers-Schütze

Fantastic quality books.
Just don't try to buy as a gift for someone in another country.
Oh for the ability to telephone and talk to someone.

Lieber Stefan,
vielen Dank für die freundliche Nachricht, das hoffen wir sehr! Es sieht ganz gut aus, allzu viele Exemplare der limitierten Ausgabe sind bereits nicht mehr verfügbar.
Beste Grüße,

Bonjour Y,
c'est toujours prévu pour nos livres – par contre pour le Helmut Newton SUMO ça durait dix ans, alors en ce cas il vous faudra du patience!
Bien à vous, Florian

Now that you've published some information about the content of the upcoming "The Charlie Chaplin Archives" I'm a bit disappointed that there won't be a DVD as was the case with the Ingmar Bergman book. I would have been particularly interested in the on-set documentation for "A Countess from Hong Kong" that Chaplin's wife made as part of her home movies. Only very short glimpses of that have been used so far in two documentaries...

AHA! TASCHEN.com feiert also Leni Riefenstahls 100. Geburtstag! Feiert Ihr denn auch andere Nationalsozialistische Geburtstage? Heß? Goebels? Mengele? In den vergangenen Jahren sind zahlreiche Biografien und andere Publikationen zu Riefenstahl erschienen. Die meisten Biografen weisen auf ihre Verbindungen zum Nationalsozialismus hin und heben hervor, dass Riefenstahls Interessen sich sowohl in ideologischer als auch in praktischer Hinsicht mit denen des Dritten Reiches in vielen Punkten trafen. Think about it!

Lieber Max Muster,
vielen Dank für Ihre kritische Zuschrift. Wir sind uns bewusst, dass eine Publikation über Riefenstahls künstlerisches Schaffen – selbst wenn es unter eine zeitlich unbelastete Periode fiel, wie Ihre Arbeiten zu den Nuba – nie unproblematisch sein kann oder gänzlich entkontextualisiert von ihrer politischen Vergangenheit. Wir greifen Ihren Hinweis daher dankbar auf und werden die Ankündigung (unser Buch datiert ja von knapp nach der Jahrtausendwende) entsprechend überarbeiten.
Mit besten Grüßen,
Marie

I asked this question by email and have been told that due to a further printing delay, nothing will be delivered in Europe before 14th July.
This is quite a frustrating delay, now over a month after the launch event. I kind of wish I had decided to collect mine at the event and taken the hit on struggling home with it.
The other frustration is that the customer has to constantly ask for updates.
For a £450 purchase I expect somewhat better service.

I would like to share Andrew's frustrations and all those who have pre-ordered(or not)the 2001 book by saying that it has been taking a very long time...
3.  Marie, TASCHEN Internet Department, Deutschland, 07. Juli 2014
Dear Romeu, Andrew and Mark,
We realize you must be eager to receive your copy of this exquisite book. Please accept our apologize for the delay, which was caused by the intricate production process of this limited collector’s edition.
Furthermore, quality control is immensely important to us, as we look forward to delivering a product of the highest quality.
To inquire about your individual orders, please send a message to our colleagues in customer service at contact-uk@taschen.com and contact-us@taschen.com
Best wishes,
Marie

Firstly, let me say that Taschen's quality is second to none. However, I am disappointed that when there is a delay they do not communicate. My credit card was charged in May (after a direct order through Taschen), credited back at the beginning of July,(for no credible reason), then recharged (leading me to incur transaction and exchange costs). It is now the end of July, and Taschen still has not notified me of what is happening. I attended the 2001 book launch and wished that I had collected at the time. I just get fobbed off when I enquire about the current situation. Please Taschen, do not take your customers for granted. Your products are superb, but customer service requires improvement. I am just trying to be helpful.
