This monumental publication first published in TASCHEN’s limited collector’s editions is now finally available in a popular hardcover edition!
"This is not a book. This is a monument on paper, the most megalomaniacal book in the history of civilization, the biggest, heaviest, most radiant thing ever printed - Ali's last victory." Der Spiegel, Hamburg
Universally acclaimed as the greatest sportsman of the modern era, someone who transformed not just his sport but the cultural status of athletes everywhere, Muhammad Ali still towers over the "sweet science" of boxing, more than three decades after announcing his retirement. Acknowledged as one of the most remarkable personalities of our time and undoubtedly the most popular sporting personality ever, his status as the finest heavyweight champion to grace a ring is beyond all doubt.
To honour this living legend, TASCHEN created an epic book, as powerful and vibrant as the man himself, a phenomenal artifact that reflects the scale of Ali's many achievements: GREATEST OF ALL TIME - A TRIBUTE TO MUHAMMAD ALI is a book with the power, courage, depth, creativity and dazzling energy of its extraordinary subject.
Containing thousands of images, photography, art and memorabilia from over 100 photographers and artists, 2 gatefold sequences, original essays as well as the best interviews and writing of the last five decades round off the picture of the Champ, this monumental publication is finally available in an affordable, unlimited edition.
Today, seven years after the publication of GOAT, we are proud to publish this affordable edition at last so that Ali’s genius can be shared with the widest possible audience. Smaller in size but not in impact, this new version brings the people’s champ to the people.
"Un livre enorme. Hors categorie. Carre comme un ring de boxe. Epais mais affute. Juste a son poids de forme. 35 kg!" - Le Figaro Litteraire, on GOAT Collector's Edition "Full of stunning, never seen before photographs and articles, GOAT will fairly take your breath away with its sheer beauty and size. The book is a must-have collector's item." - In Press, Manila"
