As a passionate reader and a long time adorer of the surreal, I couldn’t help but wonder if there were any plans on publishing a book of the works of Remedios Varo

Hi, what is up with Byrnes-Euclid cased edition? I've bought this one through Amazon last august and it has't been shiped yet?

Could you please tell me, will I ever receive my copy? I'm obsessing over this book!

Hi there, looking at "Inez van Lamsweerde/Vinoodh Matadin Pretty Much Everything" I found out a massive difference between the limited and trade edition, there are almost 300 pages less in the trade edition. Have you lowered the number of pages randomly or is there any kind of selection? Could you say something about the difference?

Hi Luca,
The trade edition is indeed 280 pages shorter than the original edition. We selected only one of the accompanying essays to be included in this new edition. But, of course, you will still find all the wonderful photographs by Inez and Vinoodh!
Best, Jutta

I think releasing Almodovar book in the "Archives" series was premature. He is still alive and making movies and that outdates the book really fast! I think, you would be better off concentrating on great dead directors such as (in no particular order): Antonioni, Kurosawa, Bunuel, Hitchcock, Tarkovsky, Leone, Fosse, Visconti, Welles...

Dear SV, We ran a poll asking TASCHEN readers who was their favorite film director, and Pedro Almodóvar came top. Pedro was intimately involved in making the book - the book contains many texts written by him for the book. And we're very happy that Pedro will be making many more films in the future! best - paul

Don't get me wrong, I am happy that Pedro is alive and well, but it's so much easier to review a complete body of work. Besides, you cannot be objective when the subject of your book can control how information is presented in it.
3.  Paul Duncan, Editor, United Kingdom, December 01, 2013
Dear SV, I disagree, and for two reasons. First, director's (and indeed artist's is any field of expression) have a great deal of information and opinion on how and why they made they work, and this is key to any discussion of their work. Secondly, there is no such thing as an objective assessment - biographers and editors have subjective opinions that will be apparent in the biographies that they make. best - paul

Los libros editados por Taschen son inaugurales y a la vez continuación de la mejor y más ilustrada cultura de la cultural en serie, ya no solo de la era industrial sino también de la posindustrial y de supratecnologías digitales. El lujo se convierte así en una obra de arte, la obra de arte en una producción de consumo, sofisticada y tal vez de elevado precios para la media del consumidor-lector, pero de indudable calidad. En Taschen se convierte en libro el arte y el arte se integra al libro. Libro y arte son una y misma cosa, idénticos asuntos.

The books published by Taschen is opening yet then the best and most enlightened culture cultural series, and not only of the industrial era but also the post-industrial, digital supratecnologías. The luxury thus becomes a work of art, work of art in a production of consumption, sophisticated and perhaps high price for the average consumer-reader, but of unquestionable quality. In Taschen book becomes art and art is integrated into the book. Book and art are one and the same, identical issues.

A re-print of Piers Bizony´s "2001 - Filming the Future"??! Maybe in a Monolith case...
3.  Florian, TASCHEN Editor, Cologne, Germany, December 07, 2013
Dear Phil,
Piers has been compiling something much better than just a reprint… Monolith case? Mmh… stay tuned!

Are you able to tell us the approximate price range for this new 2001 title?

J'ai adoré votre édition des contes de Grimm.
Un seul regret : imprimé en Chine.
Bilan écologique de l'opération ?
Je m'informerai la prochaine fois avant d'acheter.

Bonjour Monsieur,
merci de votre commentaire critique.
Nous partageons votre souci pour l'environemment, mais pour une maison d'édition à distribution mondiale ce n'est pratiquement égal ou se trouve l'imprimerie.
Le facteur clé pour nous est la qualité, et dans le cas des frères Grimm, nous nous contentons de dire que notre partenaire Chinois selectionné et éprouvé soigneusement a produit un excellent résultat.
Bien à vous,
