This isn't out yet (but already sold out it seems, at 750 euros a pop) but the book is already on display in most Taschen stores.
I've had a chance to check the 4 volumes and volume 2 is to me one of the best examples I've ever come across of exciting content with extremely off-putting presentation. Brought to you by the studio that had already done the Napoleon one whose layout I wasn't a fan of (so I guess we're all being consistent) because of things like this :
Now for the sake of paying homage to the monolith they decided to go with this narrow book consisting start to finish of gate-fold spreads, and I can't remember ever hating that much going through a book.
The content itself is amazing though but I think this flat example shown on the Taschen website
is far more engaging than 500 pages or so of folded images.
Are you a hater? Is QBN a review site for critics now?
Yeah looks like a crappy layout I guess, but really nicely put together. Oh well. You know someone here was ranting on how 2001 was boring and overrated. Go figure.
I have this one too, beautifully though some will argue about using Avant Garde on the cover of a book dedicated to a Futura Extra Bold lover.
Huge yeah but part of their collection of books that they anticipate people will want to put on display at their place.
