Actually borrowed this book from the library before I bought it online. Love the concept explored in the book and extensive content surrounding the transportation of artwork.

Format: Paperback
Although there are many books about taxes, they are all either stiflingly boring or overly technical-never fun to read or remotely entertaining. "Taxing Art" by designer Beta Tank is not only a page-turner, it is also extremely thought-provoking and insightful! The book discusses the German tax system and the way it differentiates between art and design, in particular, the way the strict laws inhibit creativity. Beta Tank created a series of seemingly ordinary objects that test the boundaries by having the ability to be classified as both art and design, depending on the official's decision. However, instead of merely reading tax-related facts, the reader is invited to join Beta Tank on his (and his objects') world-wide journey, during which he managed to obtain several different classifications for the same objects. This book is excellent on many levels: it is well written, interesting, contains beautiful objects, and the writer's arguments are completely backed up. Definitely worth reading and keeping an eye out for this up and coming designer!
