Taschen. It's not just porn, you know. It's not just fantastic women in fetish spikes... It is also dogs and gnomes and Gaudi; it is Swedish interiors; it is car crashes and Tiki and the complete paintings of Van Gogh.
Here at Jarrold we're delighted to be embarking on three months of partnership with Taschen to highlight the breadth and depth of its publishing. We'll be turning over the 'beautiful books' wall in the Jarrold book department entirely to a broad and eclectic selection of Taschen books.
You can buy Taschen books from £10 upwards, but we're particularly excited to have as part of our selection a display copy of one of Taschen's massive 'Sumo' titles: David Hockney, A Bigger Book. This huge and glorious £2,250 behemoth is rarely seen outside a handful of London stores, but from Monday 5 March it will be on display in Jarrold.
Hockney is one of the most important and influential British artists of the twentieth (and now the twenty-first) century, his work instantly recognisable to many. Taschen's book was produced in close collaboration with Hockney and each copy is signed by the artist, as well as coming complete with a striking Marc Newson-designed book stand.
We look forward to showing you the Taschen range in Jarrold - and don't forget that, to reward early viewing and purchasing, we're giving double book loyalty card points on all the Taschen products we sell - whether from stock, or ordered in especially for you, up to and including Sunday 11 March.
