The Burning Man festival means different things to different attendees—an escape from the quotidian for some, a social experiment in minimal bathing for most—but what it really excels in is its large-scale art installations. Now you can relive some 16 years of amazing Burning Man sights with photographer NK Guy’s Taschen Books collection, Art of Burning Man ($60). Even if you’ve never been, you’ll gain new appreciation for the Burners’ unfettered self-expression.
