Am I to assume if I go to either the Oxford St/Picadilly store, I'll be in luck?
I saw the Renoir for the same in an indie music store in Brighton the other week but couldn't face lugging it round with me. I'd love all these.
Just a head's up to UK forum members, HMV have a random selection of Taschen books going realatively cheap in store. I picked up Michaelangelo Antonioni: The Complete Films for £2, Jean Renoir: The Complete Films for £5, Alfred Hitchcock: The Complete Films for £7 and Japanese Cinema for £5. All are hardback except for the Antonioni book, and all are of Taschen's usual excellent aesthetic quality. There were a handful more such as a Stanley Kubrick: The Complete films for £7 and "the best films of the..." series each for £7.
I have no idea. I know they had this selection in the Reading HMV and can confirm the Antonioni, the Kubrick and the Hitchcock were
in the Oxford HMV as a friend picked them up last week (which led me to visit my local store), so I'd assume
that either of the mentioned London stores should stock them too. It was a bit of a scavenger hunt - the Reading store had them scattered around all over the place. A pile of Renoir's were under the checkout area, some Hitchcock's were in the hard-back best-seller book section and the rest were piled messily underneath several display units that were showcasing novels, biographies etc. As per HMV protocol, there was no rhyme or reason to their display so I may have missed more.
