Announcing a new TASCHEN bookshop


We now have our very own (cartoon) TASCHEN store in Springfield, thanks to “The Simpsons”!

On the latest episode of “The Simpsons,” “The Day The Earth Stood Cool” a shiny new TASCHEN store opens in the Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield. The premise of the episode is that Homer wants a younger, hipper image so he starts hanging out with his “cool” new neighbors from Portland, Oregon. The “cool” Portlandians have a vision of turning Springfield into a hipster paradise where the Quickie Mart turns into a Whole Foods, the tire factory turns into an American Apparel, and the comic book shop turns into—what else?—a TASCHEN Store!
