…full of young studs. I don’t really know why, but from just this superb drawing I get the impression these two probably are. But even more impressive, if possible, is Taschen’s collection of books. Taschen have traditionally specialised in lavish editions of art and architecture. They are slighlly sinfully better known for their books of erotica. The books themselves are a joy to read, largely due to the care taken with photographs and typesetting, and the precision quality of the printing.

They don’t go quite as gloriously far in the production process as The Folio Society, however.
