  • “More an art installation than a coffee-table tome.”

    — Sotheby’s In Residence, Dubai
  • “If a library were a game of Happy Families, this book would be the wild joker… And because it is more a sculpture than a book, it comes with its own little table. Annie Leibovitz is something like the photographer’s triumph.”

    — Die Welt, Berlin
  • “Intimate and sublime.”

    — Madame Figaro, Paris
  • “A limited edition and weighty affair, it’s a beautiful object in itself…a design statement in your living room.”

    — The Daily Telegraph (Luxury Supplement), London
  • “Precise composition, perfect framing, subtle colors and celebrated actors… A meticulously assembled volume.”

    — Efe Agency, Madrid
  • “Cool attitude: an American aesthetic… Annie Leibovitz displays almost to excess the commercial identity of cool in this Sumo volume, which weighs a good twenty kilos. The work itself is of magnificent craftsmanship and follows a clear economic logic. Since the book market is increasingly constrained, TASCHEN is producing more expensive collectors’ editions printed in small runs and guaranteed to gain in value from day one. The 500 large-format (50 x 70 cm) pages only intensify the intrinsic qualities of Leibovitzs’ cool: a taste for stagey settings, for power, glamour, success, flamboyance and the intimate and private laid before the public.”

    — L’Hebdo, Lausanne
  • “A fantastic portrait of our time.”

    — Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich
  • “Leibovitz has just published an extraordinary new book of her photographs from TASCHEN… I guarantee that it will sell out quickly from New York’s Upper East Side to Beverly Hills to Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco… The pictures are sumptuous, iconic, and historic.”

    — www.showbiz411.com, Los Angeles
  • “This book will make her immortal: Annie Leibovitz has made a selection of her best works for publication – in the mighty SUMO format… The volume, published by TASCHEN, is more than a book, it is a universe, with its very own perspective.”

    — Berliner Morgenpost, Berlin
  • “Printed in Germany, bound in Italy, the book’s international production fits its contents, which are nothing less than 40 years’ worth of classic and iconic photography… reproduced with breathtaking clarity, texture, and vividness, the colors and subjects practically leaping off the page.”
