The Big Picture Book

The Rizzoli publishing house in New York released the stunning illustrated book about the Princely house in 2015. Princess Gloria had started work on the book two years earlier, sending New York photographer Todd Eberle through the castle to take impressive and unique photos that make this picture book so distinctive.

Contributors include prestigious authors, in addition to Princess Gloria, who provides some very personal insight into the story of her life since her marriage to Prince Johannes: these include Jeff Koons, Sir John Richardson, Leon Talley, Martin Mosebach, Count Alexander von Schönburg and Princess Elisabeth of Thurn and Taxis. They all talk about their experiences of visiting St. Emmeram Palace.

Todd Eberle’s eye-catching photos show all the facets of the princely residence of St. Emmeram: from the Middle Ages to the 21st century, from the library to the museums and the private rooms of the princely family... A princely house has probably never been this open.

‘The House of Thurn und Taxis’, hard cover, 240 p. or ‘Thurn und Taxis, The House’, Paperback, 240 p.
