Christo and Jeanne-Claude, a forthcoming volume from Taschen, provides detailed overview of the life and work of the duo. Working together since 1961, Christo and Jean-Claude (who passed away in 2009) created a fantastic series of large scale environmental installations. The book covers these, and sheds light on process through drawings and sketches. Additionally, their early lives are celebrated through family photography.

Taschen will release Christo and Jeanne-Claude in two editions – an art edition limited to 100 pressings and a more available set of 1000, numbered and signed by Christo.

Edited by Wolfgang Volz, who has worked as the artist’s executive photographer since 1971.
