Annie’s Big Book

Earlier this year, Taschen released a book of Annie Leibovitz’s photography that is simply epic in scale.  Developed over the course of several years, Annie Leibovitz contains the photographer’s most iconic images along with rare and never-before-seen photos.  Her work spans decades and captures scenes from the worlds of entertainment, politics, business, art, and so much more.
