“I don’t want a taschen-book, I want a book by TASCHEN!”
Some ideas simply don’t fly: i.e. Cologne Bachelors (2), a photo guide to the city’s single men, was meant to be the first in a series featuring bachelors and bachelorettes from cities all over the world. This one was a Rohrkrepierer (lonely loser). And editor Angelika Muthesius, the future wife of Benedikt, was hired especially to catch all these bachelors.
A poster features Benedikt’s daughter, Marlene (1), announcing “I don’t want a taschen-book, I want a book by TASCHEN!” (You see, “TASCHEN” means “pocket” in German.)
The TASCHEN-mobilehits Germany (3, 4)—if you can’t get the books to the booksellers, bring the booksellers to the books (and keep them locked in the van until they seal their order—whatever is proposed!). Sleeping beauty M. C. Escher (5) has been lying low since the ’70s until we acquired the rights.
