Taschen Shows an Underappreciated Art Some Love

Illustration may be the magazine world’s redheaded stepchild (and photography, its beloved sibling), but the good people at Taschen have devoted their good taste and even better paper to the art. Editor Julius Wiedemann has put together this collection of work by artists, some familiar, some new, from around the world, producing a book that far exceeds most humdrum illustration compendiums. With a luscious cover by the collective Area 3, it’s perfect for even the finest coffee table.
