, in some cases reaching ten times their original price. Leading examples include: Helmut Newton SUMO

While the production of these books command a no-limit budget policy, they make their proud owners feel good about their investments and their astute buying policy. They also allow us to let book lovers with less extravagant budgets benefit from the generous and lavish production cost that went into making the XXL book. Once the limited edition is sold out, we offer a smaller, condensed, yet equally well-produced edition with a much gentler price tag. It’s a win-win situation, and we all live happily ever after.
“TASCHEN books are almost designed to be collectible. It’s very common for a TASCHEN book to gain value almost instantly.” — Richard David, Abebooks, the world’s most popular platform for antiquarian books
