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

Those traveling internationally can opt to have their purchases shipped to their home (shipping fees apply).
