There’s a new book out by the Photographer Todd Selby – Fashionable Selby –  opening the door to the sort of voyeurism that really tickles my fancy: Designers at work..

It’s thinking you have that little bit of knowledge to know what they’re really like and what makes them tick..the reality behind the curtain.  Even though you know in your mind, you’re still seeing what they want you to see….but it helps that each profile is accompanied by Selby’s watercolour portraits and illustrated questionnaires, revealing answers to personal questions.

It sounds delicious non?

    I will be looking for this book! Every photo you offered shows and extraordinary amount of light. Bright working spaces — something to keep in mind when designing my work space. XO

    I covet Dries Van Noten’s life. Have you seen his country house and gorgeous garden outside Antwerp? I will have to settle for having him in my life in the form of embroideries and prints. xo

    Oui, it sounds delicious ! Watching designers in their own studio is a fantastic way of celebrating their creative process and their inspirations ! xxxxx

      I think it was the addition of the q&a with illustrations that underlined this book for me..makes it more than just an interior design book, more than a photography book..there’s something personal as well… xxx
