Founded in 1980 by Benedikt Taschen, TASCHEN started by publishing comic books but later evolved with a series of pocket-sized art books. TASCHEN’s origins democratized the serious art world with books that were conveniently inexpensive art collections that fit as easily into your bag as your bookshelf.
