After the last two weeks in New York City to make final changes to Taschen’s Trespass dummy with the authors, and thanks to the designer Josh Baker, it’s looking better and better as we take the final steps to production.
The photo you see shows the unfinalized, drafted concept for the cover with Gordon Matta Clark’s Window Blowout from 1976. We hope that keeps you curious as much of the work in Trespass is to get past preconceived notions about the graffiti and Street Art, for fans and newcomers to the subject.
When I think about the work that goes into the organization and presentation of material to reflect a book’s contents — the way the sweeping variety of ideas and information interact — I think that’s what makes Trespass special, and unexpected. The collaborations certainly make the whole, and we couldn’t do with any less in bringing together this volume!
With 320 pages, and 32cm or 12.5in in height, it’s finally a good-sized book.
