Everyone at The Farmer’s Daughter is a big fan of Taschen. We sell some of their books in the lobby and the Robin Rooms. So it’s no surprise that I love wandering over to the clock tower at The Grove where the Taschen store is located and skimming through books on art, music, history, and every aesthetically pleasing thing in between. I took Kota over there after tea and carrot dogs because I knew she would love it, plus she just matched the store so well. We flipped through the pin-up books, the 36 hour series, even The Big Butt Book 3D (the Taschen employees kindly let us borrow 3D glasses), but we really fell in love with a photography book by Bettina Rheims and Serge Bramly, Rose, C’est Paris. Every single page was a new story, told in black in white, shrouded in beauty and mystery. We even found a photo where the models had very similar hair and outfits as Kota. There is one thing I can count on when I go to Taschen- even if I initially go to browse or shop, I always leave feeling inspired.
