GOAT – Taschen’s hefty tribute to Muhammad Ali
January 17 is Muhammad Ali’s birthday. All fans of this boxer should make themselves acquainted with Taschen’s GOAT Greatest of All Time by Jeff Koons, which has pride of place on one of my bookselves. It’s massive, gorgeous and has plenty to read. It was originally published in 2004 and covers the boxer’s entire life from the Olympics to his retirement. See the young Cassius Clay at the Rome Olympics, see images from his two bouts with Sonny Liston and his memorable fights with Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Ken Norton and all those other fighters from a golden era of boxing.
