The New York Times Explorer. Beaches, Islands&Coasts

Производитель: "TASCHEN"

Whether it`s a languid day on the postcard-perfect bays of the Maldives, a swim to the tiny monastery island in Italy`s Lago d`Orta, or a chocolate tour of the Caribbean, dive in and share the discoveries of Beaches, Islands&Coasts. Part of TASCHEN`s Explorer series with The New York Times, this book tells the stories of 25 dream trips for curious minds, where the water is always only a pebble`s throw away. Motor past pink sands and bougainvillea in Bermuda with Andrew McCarthy, walk the rugged trail where Wales meets the sea with Dominique Browning, or skip Tuscany`s countryside in favor of it`s inviting coastline with Frank Bruni. The Times writers are your guides, and the wealth of color photographs that accompany their writing capture the soul-nourishing magic of places where the water rolls up to meet the land. The Explorer series takes travel beyond the obvious with adventures in exotic places and new perspectives in familiar ones, all based on the distinguished travel journalism in The New York Times. Each journey features a first person narrative and postcard perfect photography that capture the unique personality of the destination as well as practical information to help get you on your way. Edited by Barbara Ireland, whose 36 Hours travel series has been a TASCHEN best seller, the Explorer series launches with Beaches, Islands&Coasts and Mountains, Deserts&Plains. Upcoming volumes include Urban Adventures and Road, Rail&Trail.

Taschen

Taschen is an art book publisher founded in 1980 by Benedikt Taschen in Cologne, Germany. It began as "Taschen Comics" publishing Benedikt's extensive comic collection. Taschen has been a noteworthy force in making lesser-seen art available to mainstream bookstores, including some fetishistic imagery, queer art, historical erotica, pornography and adult magazines (including multiple books with "Playboy" magazine). Taschen has helped bring this art into broader public view, by publishing these potentially controversial volumes alongside its more mainstream books of comics reprints, art photography, painting, design, fashion, advertising history, film, and architecture.

Taschen's publications are available in a variety of sizes, from large tomes detailing the complete works of Leonardo Da Vinci, to surprisingly uncommon middle-sized books, to their "Icons" series of small, flexicover volumes which encapsulate themes of everything from old ads of Las Vegas, Nevada to male nudes. The company has also produced calendars, address books, and postcards of popular subjects.

The company's stated mission has been to publish innovative, beautifully designed art books at popular prices. The Icons series, for example, has several new volumes published a year, and retailing for about $10 are inexpensive for published collections of art. Another popular series is their 'basic Art' series, which has around 50 volumes, each about a separate artist, ranging from artists such as Michelangelo to more contemporary artists such as Norman Rockwell.

Taschen has published the second most expensive book in publishing history, the $12,500, 75 pound, 700 page "GOAT (Greatest of All Time)", a tribute to Muhammad Ali which "Der Spiegel" called "the biggest, heaviest, most radiant thing ever printed in the history of civilization." They have also published the $1500 Helmut Newton retrospective "Sumo" and a $2500 limited edition "Araki" volume.

Dedicated flagship Taschen bookstores are located in Berlin, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris, and New York City.
