You know, I just can't walk past a mirror without taking a self portrait.

Christo

Taschen Books is releasing a unique Art edition of Christo's work. 'Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Art Edition, No. 1-6'.  Original collages, 6 in total, of the "Over the River.." and "the Mastaba" projects, accompanied by the Art editions No. 1-6. One collage and one clamshell book $50k. Yes a hefty price tag but then it is an original by Christo. Not surprising several have already been pre-sold.




Also included with every book is a copy of "Project for Jewelry on Jeanne-Claude's Hand", an edition limited to 100 signed and numbered copies.

Taschen is also offering several other options on Christo's work. Clamshell box on its own (1,000 copies), and Clamshell box with a copy (no. 7-100) of "Project for Jewelry on Jeanne-Claude's Hand".
Really quite wonderful in my opinion.
