Known for producing some of the nicest art and design books published today, Taschen made a big move with the introduction of their Bibliotheca Universalis collection. Substantial in every way except size, these compact hardcover volumes are a “go to” for creative professionals and anyone who appreciates beautiful book design. This set of three focuses on two design essentials: objects and styles. Design of the 20th Century features prominent designers and their masterpieces; Scandinavian Design showcases brands and designers such as Finland’s Marimekko and Sweden’s Volvo; and 1000 Lights is a celebration of lightbulbs and fixtures from their development through today.
