Historian Jim Heimann covers over 300 years of surfing in this harbound monolith.
At some 500 pages, Surfing. 1778–Today is the brainchild of regular Taschen co-conspirator Jim Heimann, a cultural anthropologist and graphics historian with a serious kink for surf history. As a single-copy visual library that spans over two centuries of wave riding, it’s extravagant in its color and comprehensive nature. With hundreds of images and essays by today’s leading surf writers, this tome spans photography, fashion, film, art, and music to chart the evolution of surfing culture.
