Taschen, doing what it does best.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hotel Book: Europe: Great Escapes (Jumbo) (Hardcover)
Taschen, doing what it does best: high quality print, design and visually stunning imagery, supported by brief, slightly quirky (multilingual) text. All this for two-thirds of the price of a normal coffee table book and only marginally more than the HIP Hotels series - which it is clearly emulating. The text isn't as in-depth as the HH series, but it is more objective in tone. However, with images and production as sumptuous as this, who needs copy?
My one criticism - the rather uninspiring cover image; it doesn't do the book justice. Also a few more outlandish locations would have been good. Still, this is a very rewarding book and I eagerly await the rest of the series. (Am just hoping my coffee can take it).
