Looking for a gift for the artistic book worm in your life (or the bookish art lover?). Well, The Art Gallery of Ontario and luxury publisher TASCHEN have partnered to open a “shop within a shop” devoted to books from the renowned German publisher of art, architecture and design books — just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.

ShopAGO is the first store in Canada to feature an exclusively branded TASCHEN collection, dubbed “the most exquisite books on the planet” by Wallpaper Magazine. Titles in the shop cover all areas of art, art history, photography, design, architecture, pop culture, subculture and lifestyle and are available at shopAGO (317 Dundas St. W.) and online at

Some highlights from ShopAGO:
