And their love of a challenge isn’t limited to subject matter, either – Taschen has pushed the envelope of the physical book as well. In 1999 they published Helmut Newton’s Sumo, a book of Newton’s most famous photographs, in a limited edition of 10,000 copies worldwide, each signed and numbered by the photographer.
But the stunning part is that each book measures 20 X 27.5 inches (just under two feet by just over two feet) and weighs approximately 66 lbs. It’s so large that it comes with a small folding desk/stand to display it. Dock Gallery presents you one of the 10,000 copies of Helmut Newton’s Sumo in our gallery.
Taschen books are highly recommended, specially the editions about art. All capital cities, like Paris, Cologne, Brussels and Amsterdam have books stores of Taschen. The special Taschen-table at Dock Gallery has added Rotterdam to the list of exclusive selling points of the famous Taschen books.
