With the print industry flailing around like a boozy reveller in a deceptively deep fountain, you might think that publishers would be keen to snare buyers with cut-price offers. Not so over at Taschen where bigger is better as exemplified by their gorgeous new Marc Newson monograph, a 610-page behemoth, the special edition of which retails at a cool £3,500 (regular edition £650).
But if you’re going to go big, then it makes sense to take on a talent as immense as Marc Newson. The Australian-born London based designer is undoubtedly one of the industry’s genuine superstars – in 2005 he was named by TIME as one of the most influential people in the world. From furniture to fashion, shops to a spaceship (I know!) it’s all here to be pored and purred over and it’s an important record of a hugely significant design figure.
