The House of Thurn und Taxis

Skira

Adventure through the princely Thurn und Taxis estate, an enchanted palace where 1,000 years of history meets a thoroughly modern family. ?For 200 years the Thurn und Taxis family have called the palace of St. Emmeram home. Regarded as one of Germany's finest examples of historicist architecture, the Regensburg residence's myriad rooms trace centuries of distinctive styles: a Romanesque-Gothic cloister built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, a neo-Renaissance marble staircase, a number of Rococo and neo-Rococo staterooms, and a Baroque library frescoed in 1737. Celebrated photographer Todd Eberle captures the confluence of high art and grand architecture within the 500-room palace to reveal the curious tale of the Thurn und Taxis family. Complete with stately portraits and scenes of life at St. Emmeram, this monograph offers a glimpse into the world and glamour of one of the most important dynasties of the European aristocracy.

Rezension
"While it's true there are explosive juxtapositions at the Regensberg Palace of St. Emmeran, there is a certain symmetry too. That precarious balance of the ancient & modern is held in the hands of Gloria, Countess von Schoenburg-Glauchau, known in the 1980's as Princess TNT. . . With over 500 rooms & still a private residence, Schloss St. Emmeran has been Gloria von Thurn und Taxis' life's work. . . Glorious, the book lives up to the grandeur that is the world of Princess TNT ."
- LITTLE AUGURY BLOG
What makes Schloss St. Emmeram so memorable is its glorious architecture, which includes examples of the Romanesque-Gothic, Rococo, and Baroque styles. But what many laud is Thurn und Taxis' contemporary art collection, which provides a striking-to-some contrast to the palace's regal architecture. . . The photos of the myriad rooms of St. Emmeram are gorgeous, making this book a dazzling read ."
- THE PEAK OF CHIC BLOG
"[ The House of Thurn und Taxis ] is a beautiful look into the palace of Schloss St. Emmeram, the family's home for more than 200 years. The interiors are just as amazing as the history . . . this one is at the top of my list ."
- HABITUALLY CHIC BLOG
"Stunningly captured by photographer Todd Eberle, [ The House of Thurn und Taxis is] a 500-room wonderland of elegance and eccentricity , where Baroque excess meets oompah Victoriana meets Jeff Koons sculptures."
-ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
"The term 'pop-punk princess' has been applied to many young female singers, but at the apex of her eccentricity in the 1980s, Princess Gloria of Thurn und Taxis was probably most literally deserving of the label. . . Through stunning photographs by Todd Eberle, House of Thurn und Taxis tours the jaw-dropping collection of contemporary art and significant antiques that Gloria has maintained at the family palace, St. Emmeram, in southeastern Germany."
