Annie's Classic Portraits

The epic collection of Annie Leibovitz’s work, now available with a signed and numbered ChromaLuxe metal print

For over 50 years, Annie Leibovitz has been creating a body of work that is unequaled in breadth and influence. From the viscerally immediate reportage made for Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s and extending through the more stylized portraiture of her work for Vanity Fair and Vogue, her pictures make up what is essentially a family album of our time.

In 2014, in close collaboration with Annie, TASCHEN published a SUMO edition of her work: over 200 photographs, many of them famous (the naked John Lennon entwined in a last embrace with Yoko Ono, Patti Smith on fire) and some rarely, if ever, seen before. In 2022, to accommodate a wider audience, this volume was recreated as an unlimited XXL edition.

The XXL volume is now available as an Art Edition in four different versions, each accompanied by a signed, numbered and framed dye-sublimation ChromaLuxe aluminum print. David Byrne, Los Angeles, 1986 is included in an edition of 275 copies.

In 1986, David Byrne wrote, directed and starred in his only feature film, True Stories. It was a quirky view of life in small-town rural Texas. Several of his collaborators on the project were from the downtown New York performing-arts world. Music was an integral element in the film and much of it was supplied by Byrne’s band, the Talking Heads. The conceit was that the town was celebrating the 150th anniversary of Texas becoming independent from Mexico: “a celebration of specialness.” One of the celebratory events was a fashion show in a shopping mall. Adelle Lutz, Byrne’s girlfriend at the time and later wife, designed the clothes. Her theme was “Urban Camouflage,” a whimsical nod to the historical relationship between surrealism and fashion: AstroTurf lawnwear, brick-patterned suits, a dress in the form of a wedding cake, and Byrne in her “Ivy Jacket with Wood Slacks.”

Art Edition “David Byrne” (No. 1–275). Hardcover volume in a slipcase, accompanied by the portrait David Byrne, Los Angeles, 1986.

Also available: the Art Editions “Keith Haring” (No. 1–1,000); “Whoopi Goldberg” (No. 1–450); and “Patti Smith” (No. 1–275). ChromaLuxe prints are numbered and signed by Annie Leibovitz. Total copies of the four Art Editions: 2,000
