Taschen Sale This Weekend

I had the paradigmatic blogger moral struggle about this post: do I do my duty as a Metblogger and let you all know about the Taschen sale or do I keep mum and save all the best buys for myself? In the end, my love for you, my fellow Angelenos, won out. I am letting the cat out of the bargain bag.

This weekend there is a giant sale (50-75% off) on display copies and slightly banged up books at all Taschen stores. Taschen, for those of you who are unfamiliar, publishes lovely, delicious books that are almost as much fun to hold in your hands as they are to read. Recent publications include books on David LaChapelle, big butts, Burton Holmes’ turn of the century travel photos, and Philippe Starck. I have no idea what in particular will be on sale, but it’s hard to go wrong in a Taschen store. Details after the jump.

  1. Damn, you are evil. I wish I didn’t know about this.

    If I ever get stupid rich, I’ll buy some ridiculously expensive Taschen book. I used to work in the (now gone) Book Soup in South Coast Plaza. We had the Muhammad Ali book, GOAT, behind the cash register. It was $4500.

  2. Unfortunately, the books I was most interested in ([i]Julius Shulman, Modernism Rediscovered[/i], [i]Cast Study Houses[/i], and the [i]Architecture Now![/i] series) were not on sale. But I managed to pick up a few other good architecture books. And if anyone’s a really big fan of Jean Nouvel, the BH store has an autographed copy of their ginormous [i]Jean Nouvel by Jean Nouvel, Complete Works 1970-2008[/i] on sale for $200 (down from $700). I might check out the FM store tomorrow and see if they have anything different.

    Thanks for the heads up, Travis!
