A Note on Our Expert: Angelika Taschen
Angelika Taschen got her doctorate in art history from the University of Heidelberg in 1986. She has edited for Taschen since 1987, publishing numerous titles on architecture, photography, design, and contemporary art. “Now everybody is interested in design, but 20 years ago this was something very elitist, and not many people were into it,” explains Taschen. “I did this Bauhaus book [Best of Bauhaus: An In-Depth Study of the Seminal Movement in Art and Architecture] about furniture design in the 20th century, which is a great book—we still reprint it.” She conceived Taschen’s Interiors series in 1993 and the Country Houses series in 1999.
