Taschen Book summer sale!

Luxury publisher TASCHEN today announces its eagerly anticipated summer warehouse super sale. From June 25th to 28th there are 50 to 75% discounts available in all TASCHEN stores worldwide. That's a minimum of half-price on titles spanning cutting-edge design, jaw-dropping photography and unearthed historical treasures. 

The London store in Duke of York's Square, Chelsea, will feature some of the very best bargains. And in a special twist sure to fire up summer 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, architecture and beyond. The brand's mission is to publish innovative and beautifully designed art books at popular 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 warehouse summer sale takes place between June 25th and 28th 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 summer 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, Londoners can expect some great titles to be included. (High-res images from these publications are available upon request.)

The special summer 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
