On the evening of December 12, TASCHEN Store Beverly Hills celebrated the West Coast launch of National Geographic. Around the world in 125 years limited edition set with photographers Frans Lanting, Jodi Cobb, and TASCHEN book designer Andy Disl. Our honorary speakers regaled an adoring crowd with their experiences as National Geographic photographers, as well as what went into the making of this highly celebrated three-volume tome. Following their address, Lanting (with professional partner and wife, Chris Eckstrom,) joined Cobb and Disl to sign a seemingly unending slew of books.


Selected Quotations from International Media

“If browsing is considered an art form, the TASCHEN store is a masterpiece.” — Dwell, San Francisco, United States
"An opium den of a bookstore, an irresistible emporium for all things excessive and escapist. TASCHEN’s selection appeals to the vicarious, the voracious, and the voyeuristic." — LA Weekly, Los Angeles, United States
