Books as a Work-of-Art

This past Sunday Morning on the CBS program of the same name, a segment aired about a company that publishes very, very expensive books ranging from just under $50 to thousands of dollars.

What! Well, that caught my attention.

Turns out there’s this publishing company - Taschen Books - owned by Benedikt Taschen and he has about a dozen stores around the world - AND he only sells the books that he publishes. Again, very, very expensive books.

Here’s the intro to the program:

Here’s the link:


Why bother watching it? Well, you might just become inspired.

Some folks make money no matter what the economy is doing! Sounds as if this one of the "exclusive" clubs where only the very priviledged get to participate!
