TASCHEN, located on the 1,000-sq-ft space, located at 26 Park Place in the heart of East Hampton Village, will remain open through October. The unique, standalone building compromises a playful arched brick façade with ample space to present TASCHEN’s dynamic publishing program, including SUMO-sized and limited-edition artist books and prints. The store will also host regular programming, such as artist talks, book signings and launch events. TASCHEN East Hampton will be open to the public daily from 11 AM – 7 PM.
Their event programming starts this Saturday, June 11 from 2 – 4 pm. Jessica Hundley, author of TASCHEN’s best-selling ‘Library of Esoterica’ series including Tarot, Astrology, and the newest, Witchcraft, will be in conversation with artist Lucien Shapiro, whose works are featured in the books. A reception and book signing will follow.
