Annie Leibovitz's latest book launch

Spanning a 40+ year career

Annie Leibovitz has had a career that most photographers can only dream of, capturing moments with more modern-day icons than we can count on the hands of the entire ELLE team. You know, like the Queen, the Obamas, John Lennon, Lady Gaga… And all of Hollywood.

So it comes as no surprise that Taschen asked Leibovitz to choose 250+ images from her matchless back-catalogue to be printed in a sumo-sized book, entitled simply Annie Leibovitz.

The scale is such that the book comes with its own beautifully designed stand. This isn't one for the shelf – left open at any page, it becomes a work of art in the room.

Coming soon to Taschen, Annie Leibovitz will cost £1750 for a Collector's Edition, from a run of only 10,000.
