Luxury publisher TASCHEN has announced today its warehouse super sale. From January 22nd to 25th there are 50 to 75% discounts available in all TASCHEN stores worldwide. That a minimum of half-price on titles spanning cutting-edge design, photography and unearthed historical treasures.
The London store in Duke of York’s Square, Chelsea, is set to feature some of the best bargains. And in a special twist sure to fire up New Year imaginations, the publisher is launching the #TASCHENsalefie promotion on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The most “liked” photo using this hashtag will win $5,000 of TASCHEN books, with the five most “liked” images thereafter receiving $1,000 of TASCHEN books.
TASCHEN was founded in Cologne in 1980 by Benedikt Taschen. It initially focused on comic books but soon grew to become a world-wide force in making lesser-seen art available to mainstream bookstores; across photography, painting, design, history, film and architecture. The brand’s mission is to publish innovative art books at reasonable prices, although it has sold some of the most expensive books in history. Famously TASCHEN published the $15,000, 75lbs, 700-page Greatest Of All Time – a tribute to Mohammad Ali. Der Spiegel called this “the biggest, heaviest, most radiant thing ever printed in the history of civilisation”.
TASCHEN opened its first store in London in 2007 and moved to its present home in Duke of York’s Square in October 2008. Designed by Philippe Stark the store also features a Gallery downstairs showcasing the Limited Edition Art Prints and Collector’s Edition books that the company is well known for. Since opening the store has held book signings with Sir Paul Smith, Pedro Almodovar, Marc Newson and Sebastiao Salgado.
Nolan Browne, Manager of the London TASCHEN Store said: “2015 is a huge year for TASCHEN as we celebrate our 35-year history. The TASCHEN super sale takes place between January 22nd & 25th and is an opportunity for new customers to come down to our store, meet the team and pick up an incredible bargain. This is one of London’s very best January sales, we passionately believe in giving everyone the opportunity to own one of these beautiful art books. Anyone interested should get down here early because the stock in store is different to online and it’s sure to be extremely busy!”
The store cannot reveal which books or the prices before the sale begins but with books on Her Majesty and The Age of Innocence over recent years, Londoners can expect some great titles to be included. (High-res images from these publications are available upon request.)
The special January sale is taking place at TASCHEN’s stores globally (London, Amsterdam, Beverly Hills, Brussels, Cologne, Hamburg, Hollywood, Madrid, Miami, Milan, New York and Paris). For more information log on to: www.taschen.com
