Once a limited release from TASCHEN, Peter Beard’s “gesamtkunstwerk” (a German word that translates to art assembled from multiple mediums, much like collage) returns. Within the 770-page hardcover, the pioneering artist’s photography interacts with personal writing and doodle-like drawings. Edited by Nejma Beard and David Fahey, with additional text by Owen Edwards and Steven M.L. Aronson, the tome grants access to Beard’s impassioned, international perspective—one that made him a beloved collaborator to other pioneers, from Dalí and Warhol to Truman Capote, Isak Dinesen and the Rolling Stones.
