PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We worked with Act IV on an event for TASCHEN celebrating the David Bailey Sumo.

TASCHEN’s big Sumo book of Bailey celebrates on eo the world’s most influential photographers and is the result of two years’ worth of research into his personal archives. It is a sweeping cultural history of the last 60 years and gathers some 300 subjects including Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Kate Moss, Nelson Mandela, Yves Saint Laurent, Frances Bacon, Zaha Hadid, Jack Nicholson and Margaret Thatcher – all printed big and bold, in Bailey’s signature style. The SUMO is limited to 3,000 signed copies.

Working with Act IV Juliet helped to produce an event to celebrate the launch of the book at Claridge’s, London. Over 200 people came to raise a glass to Bailey and his remarkable work.

“It’s fair to say that the evening was a joyful experience for all of our guests.”
