Though TASCHEN is the most famous art publisher in the world, in 2009 I had the idea and the courage to write them a small message about my art concept, archetypal expressionism.
I proposed them, in the future, if my art and my concept, will be accepted by the most prestigious art circles, a book on archetypal art, the 3rd Paradigm, and the archetypal expressionism.
I had the privilege to receive a kind answer from them, maybe a prove
this concept could be successful in the following years:

Dear Constantin Severin,
Thank you very much for your e-mail of September 7th, 2009 and the link.
Although your proposal sounds interesting, we regret to inform you that we cannot really insert your idea and work into our editorial program. At present we have already planned our publications for the next few years and, unfortunately, we do not have any free capacities in our editorial department to look after new book projects.
We wish you all the best for your further publication plans and hope that you will find a suitable publisher soon.
Thank you very much for your suggestion and your interest in our publishing house.

In the same period I received a similar answer from GAGOSIAN, the most important art gallery in the world. Now I’m a little more optimistic that maybe in 10 years, if my concept and art will be promoted by major art galleries and art experts, TASCHEN will dedicate a book to archetypal expressionism.
