Tank Girl is worth watching

HIGHLIGHTZONE

Benedict Taschen already ran a lively comics trade as a teenager. In 1980 he founded a publishing house in Cologne and opened a shop. Initially, he focused on selling and publishing with comics. But after a few years he found that it was more lucrative to concentrate on art books and illustrated books.

Much has happened since then. Special editions of Norman Mailer's photo reportage book MoonFire: The Epic Journey of Apollo 11 and the BILD book included real moonstones. The 33 kilo book, published in 2004, is still on offer at a price of 4,000 euros GOAT - Greatest Of All Times about Muhammad Ali. But Bags not only publishes huge books at corresponding prices, which are also suitable as objects of speculation. Almost every book by the publisher appears after a while as an affordable but also very tasty new edition.

The 40th anniversary of Bags is celebrated with the publication of 40 books at a price of 20 euros each. The hardcover volumes in the format of 15.6 x 21.7 cm offer more than 500 pages with German, English and French texts and carefully selected illustrations. These are mostly new editions of previously published, relatively high-priced books. The anniversary volumes can be ordered directly from the publisher here.

In addition to small-format editions of Peter Lindbergh's photo book On fashion appear next to the LP history Rock covers also books on the life and work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Egon Schiele and Gaudí.

There is also a comprehensive overview of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's packaging campaigns. This already takes into account the as yet unrealized wrapping of the Paris Arc de Triomphe.

But Benedict Taschen continues to feel connected to the comics. Therefore, there are also new editions by Roy Thomas ‘ The Marvel Age of Comics to and from Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse: The Ultimate Chronicle at.

The new edition of the illustrated book on Jamie Hewlett (Tank girl, Gorillaz). Thanks to a new layout and the expanded scope from 424 to 512 pages, some of the images are even larger for printing despite the smaller format. More importantly, there are almost 30 other works by Hewlett that are well worth seeing.

A new edition of The Walt Disney Film Library. The animated films 1921–1968. Unfortunately, the inexpensive new edition, which has been reduced from 620 to 510 pages, is missing some important chapters. The high-priced archive first edition remains indispensable if you want comprehensive information about Walt Disney's animated films.

An illustrated book by Noel Daniel is fairytale-like from the back and front, because if you open the book you will find the works of the Brothers Grimm and if you turn it around, you can leaf through a Hans Christian Andersen anthology.

At this point we will inform you about other books in this remarkable series, because they are also inexpensive new editions of The Star Wars Archivesand the Walt Disney Film Library published.
