Anton Corbijn Depeche Mode, Reuel Golden Collector’s Edition
In 1981, Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn first met Depeche Mode in London when he shot them for an NME cover; in the foreground the smirking, blurred singer Dave Gahan, the rest of the band standing behind him smiling in sharp focus. According to Corbijn, the band were, at the time, “too poppy” for his taste. Fast forward five years and Depeche Mode were transforming their sound and look, with Corbijn now serving as the band’s creative director. Since 1986, he has crafted all of their visuals including photography, videos, and set designs.SKU: 9783836571975

Helmut Newton Baby Sumo Taschen
Helmut Newton (1920–2004) always showed a healthy disdain for the easy or predictable, so it’s no surprise that the SUMO was an irresistible project. The idea of a book the size of a private exhibition, with spectacular images reproduced to state-of-the-art origination and printing standards, emerged from an experimental dialogue between photographer and publisher. With the SUMO weighing in—boxed and shrink-wrapped—at 35.4 kg (just under 80 pounds), Newton created a landmark book that stood head and shoulders above anything previously attempted, both in terms of conceptual extravagance and technical specifications.SKU: 9783836582216
