Fairmont Pacific Rim announces the unveiling of the TASCHEN Library, located on the hotel’s second level. This artistic collaboration is one of only two retail locations in Canada completely dedicated to TASCHEN. The new library at Fairmont Pacific Rim offers a full catalogue of TASCHEN titles, with over 275 books available, ranging from TASCHEN’s approachable artist monographs to their prestigious limited and signed Collector’s Editions.

With floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, guests can browse and shop TASCHEN’s diverse portfolio of eye-catching books that celebrate innovation and cultural creativity, including best-selling titles covering pop culture, fashion, music, contemporary art, photography, travel, and gastronomy.

Artistic partnerships

“The addition of the TASCHEN Library highlights the hotel’s commitment to artistic partnerships in all forms while introducing another world-class brand to Vancouver,” comments Jens Moesker, Regional Vice President and General Manager, Fairmont Pacific Rim. “We are thrilled to share TASCHEN’s passion for creativity and innovation and look forward to welcoming hotel guests.” The TASCHEN Library will be open daily from 10:00am-6:30pm (12:00pm-5:00pm on weekends) with a team of retail experts on-hand to guide guests through the library and find the perfect coffee table book or souvenir to bring home. Those traveling internationally can opt to have their purchases shipped to their home (shipping fees apply).
