The Fashionable Selby Book Signing

One of my favorite photographers, Todd Selby has a beautiful new book called The Fashionable Selby full of his portraits of  eccentric artisans, slick designers and cool shop keeps from around the world.

I got to meet Todd at a book signing in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. He was kind enough to come out into the wet drizzly early evening and snap a couple of photos with me. Notice his radical kitten shirt.

Todd  also does sweet little illustrations that are peppered throughout the book, like these paper dolls.  If you're admiring how daring I am for ripping pages out of an art book and cutting away, hold your horses, because we were given extra sheets of them at the party. Turns out cutting out paper dolls makes an excellent hung over activity (did I mention how strong the drinks were at the event?).

There are so many inspiring beautiful people featured in the book, it's hard to choose favorites. But if you were to hold a gun to my head and make me choose  I would have to say that I loved seeing the creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing's process of sketching his intricate embroidery patterns on toile.

Also I loved learning about Marilsol Saurez and her wigs and hair creations.

You can buy The Fashionable Selby here. 

Also if you have not had the chance to check out Todd's wonderful blog The Selby is in Your Place do do so immediately and prepare to be inspired and maybe a little bit jealous ;)
