Editorial Reviews

Review

?Domus 1928-1999 is a 12?volume, $600 walk through the international design mag's history. Highlights from 71 years are ripped from past issues and lusciously presented. Explore each style era?from art deco to functionalism, to postwar to late modern?through of-the-moment accounts as they originally appeared, rather than just through the rear view. But context is part of the package, with introductions to each section that address the significance of the period. Whether domus is a new addiction or one you?ve been feeding for some time, if you worship at the altar of aesthetics, the groundbreaking (and backbreaking) set is required reading.? CS Magazine, Chicago

From the Publisher

TASCHEN’s twelve-volume reprint features selected highlights from the years 1928 to 1999. Reproducing the pages as they originally appeared, each volume is packed with articles that bring to light the incredible history of Modern design and architecture.

The volumes have also been thoroughly indexed, allowing the reader easy access to key articles —many of which have been translated into English for the first time.

TASCHEN’s domus series is a major publishing achievement and an important must-have for all design and architecture teaching institutions, practicing architects, designers, students, and collectors.

The greatest design magazine abridged from 1928-1999. If you're interested in design, architecture etc, sell a kidney and get it...

Format: Hardcover
Quite simply, I love you. Your art books beguile me out of whole paychecks. Just the sight of a Taschen flexicover fills me with wonder and delight. Awestruck, I turn your books over in my hands. I even smell the pages while gleefully noting the paperstock. You're a real pro, Benedikt. From comic book publisher to art world King. Your quality is deliciously heartbreaking. My friends and I have spent many an eve discussing your work with envious gleaming eyes and admiring sighs over glasses of wine. Domus beckons from your website; from bookshelves; and from museum bookstores everywhere. "Own me," it says. "Six hundred smackers," I reason. Instead, I buy "Collecting Contemporary, ($30)," a sophisticated "How To" book for the budding afficionado. It tides me over and yet... Domus.
