- Jeff Koons has created a photo-litho for the "Collector's Edition," to be seen at http: //www.taschen.goat.com
- Over 3,000 images - photographs, art and memorabilia, much of it published for the first time - from over 150 photographers and artists. Original essays and the best interviews and writings on the Champ of the last five decades, from hundreds of writers, totaling nearly 600,000 words.
- XXL Format: 792 pages, including two gatefold sequences measuring 200 cm x 50 cm (80" x 20") and nine gold-metallic double-page spreads printed in silkscreen, opening each chapter. Measuring 50 cm x 50 cm (20" x 20"), GOAT tips the scales at 34 kgs (75 lbs).
- Each copy comes in a silk-covered box illustrated with Neil Leifer's iconic 1966 photo, "Ali vs Williams."
- Bound by the official bindery for the Vatican, in pink leather, the color of Ali's first Cadillac. The bindery specializing in the most elaborate and oversized editions of the Koran and the Bible enforces the strictest standards of quality control and only several hundred copies can be assembled per week.
- Utilizing state-of-the-art digital technology, no expense has been spared to restore the original photographic materials to the highest possible standards. The results of this effort create unparalleled intensity and range in the colors, and exquisite tone and density within the duotone images.

Meet the Author

Benedikt Taschen began seriously building his personal collection in 1985, through his involvement in the contemporary art world. His collection is limited to a small number of artists by whom Taschen owns a great number of pieces. This concentration both traces the development of the work of a few over time and allows us to explore their scope and vision in greater depth. Among the best-represented artists of the collection are Germans Albert Oehlen and Martin Kippenberger, with more than a hundred works each, and the American artists Jeff Koons and Mike Kelley

    Priceless

    So what if GOAT is $15,000. Everyone must read this book. Not only do you get the satisfaction of reading about someone so motivating as Muhammad Ali but you also receive priceless memorabilia.

    WHEN I SAW THIS BOOK I IMMEDIATELY SOLD MY BEST FRIEND TO AN ARA

    WHEN I SAW THIS BOOK I IMMEDIATELY SOLD MY BEST FRIEND TO AN ARAB PRINCE. THEN I REALIZED I HADNT TAKEN ANY MONEY FROM THEM SO SOLD MY GIRLFRIEND AND REMEMBERED TO KEEP THE RECEIT. NOW THAT OWN GOAT I UNDERSTAND THAT MY TWO BELOVED FRIENDS/FIANCES WERE WORTHLESS COMPARED TO THE LANGUID DIVERSITUDE THAT WAS GOAT. I READ IT AND AS THE GENIE TOLD ME I WAS GRANTED A SINGLE WISH, WHICH I USED TO GET A SECOND COPY OF GOAT (WITHOUT ANY ADDITION WISHES AS IT WAS SLIGHTLY USED). ALL IN ALL, YOU CANNOT GET YOU MONEY'S WORTH FOR ANYTHING LIKE YOU CAN FOR GOAT. THANK YOU BANRES AND NOBLE.
