Can't Get Enough of Taschen Books

My ideal home would have a walk-in closet for all my treasured ‘loved ones’ and a bright, yet cozy library filled with my other ‘loved ones’, books.  As I grow older and wiser, I find myself divesting of nonsense-ical material things.  But I will admit to my Achilles heel for uniquely, beautiful fashion pieces as well as the occasional hardcover or coffee table book.  I am a nerdy fashionistah.  Living in truth.

Egypt Style: Good enough for pharoahs. Yella habibi!

Upon perusing the local bookstore, the ones I am most drawn to are 9/10 published by TASCHEN.  Why you ask?  Well, the company always has a knack for the most appealing subject matters and the images are strikingly visual.  It’s as though they have taken you there – from a safari in Africa, to a museum in Berlin to the private studio of an iconic photographer.   

Oh you have a sexy Coffee Table: Contemporary Fashion

For the travel and lifestyle buff, there is a series of illustrated books showing various cool cafes, gourmet restaurants and tourist spots from London, Paris to Japan selected by the Taschen editors.  There are also new titles which highlight yoga escapes or meditaranean adventures.  Makes you want to pack your bags for an adventure, doesn’t it?
Fashionistahs can pick up books from famed fashion photographers Sante D’Orazio (aka Kate Moss’ ex) and Mario Testino who shot a book entirely on Rio. Look no further for architecture, fine arts or design, as the list is too long to recount.  If you are looking for a cool holiday present for a cultured bon vivant, find more appealing titles at
