PHOTOGRAPHERImages by Kyungroc Kim for COOLS

If you’ve ever wondered about the power of a good coffee table book, we are here to confirm that yes; they do make a homeowner (or renter, it’s NYC after all) look invariably cooler. With subjects that span art, photography, fashion and music, TASCHEN owns the space of chic reading. Their super luxe selection of books is known for its unrivaled quality and unique, often edgy subjects.

I know what you’re thinking: such chicness is only reserved for big spenders. Not so. TASCHEN’S sale (now on through June 24) is an opportunity to snag some elevated reading at a fraction of the cost. I popped by their Soho store to check out the event (and the selection) for myself. And I was not disappointed. From Mailer, Monroe and Stern to rare collections of Helmut Newton and Egon Schiele, there is something for everyone, up to 75% off retail.

So go ahead, judge the book by its cover. And shop some of our favorite staff picks, below.
