Got this for a steal at the close-out racks at Borders, an unbelievable comp of two Taschen Dali books. I don't want to sound cliched but if there's only one Dali book to buy, this is the one. It begins from his student sketches to his cubism period to his surrealist classics and has just about every piece he's ever created, even the infamous Mae West portrait. Lots of pics of the insane great master, too! Bet you didn't know he was the influence behind Caesar Romero's interpretation of The Joke ...more
Two volumes of unequaled reference in this format.

Taschen has produced another fine work for both the connoisseur and the scholar to add to the reference shelf.

Dali's life story without his own unique auto-biographical twists is still an astonishing tale.

If you are a student of 20th Century Art, a collector, an educator/librarian, or have any interest casual or professional in Salvador Dali, this is a must addition to the shelves.

My husband gave me this book as a birthday present. I loved the sheer weight of it and the fact that it was a hardcover. I thought it was a good representation of his work. If I had a coffee table I'd put it there. Its wonderful to flip through.
I love Dali. Great book with lots of images of his work. Not as good as the museum in St Pete, but has lots of good info.

One of the profoundly over-rated painters of the twentieth century.
