If you've already booked your summer getaways and are looking for what you'll be flipping through while lazing away on that dreamy hammock, or simply need to step up your coffee table book game, Taschen has your answer. From Thursday, June 23rd to Sunday, June 26th, the progressive book publisher is set to host its semi-annual art book sale at its two standalone stores in Beverly Hills (on Beverly Drive) and in Hollywood (at the Original Farmer's Market).
Taschen tells us that discounts will range from 50-75% off, and titles to expect include Polaroids by Andy Warhol (reg. $99.99, sale $49.99), The Rise of David Bowie, 1972–1973 by Mick Rock (reg. $69.99, sale $34.99), and even the cult-favorite Sumo by Helmut Newtown (reg. $150, sale $70).
We should note that the majority of these sale books are slightly damaged and were used for display, but that only gives them character, right?
