"As Simon Doonan puts it in his introduction, Todd Selby's new book Fashionable Selby is 'heady nectar' indeed...The book is a rich source of envy, fascination and inspiration..." Harper's Bazaar March 2014 "Selby's photographic montages, annotations and illustrations offer a glimpse into the creative spaces of the world's most fashionable: from Dries Van Noten's studios in Antwerp to the London home of Vogue's fashion director, Lucinda Chambers." British Vogue March 2014

The table of contents, which is done in freehand illustration style, also takes the book's eclectic, hyper-busy M.O. to the point where it is very difficult to read.
Overall, the book takes its jumbled, bohemian, quirky aesthetic--which normally I would really quite like--to such an extreme that it becomes nearly illegible and therefore alienating. It's as if Selby wants to tantalize but ultimately exclude readers, consigning them to remain "outsiders" who can never really glimpse the arcane, esoteric worlds he (just barely) represents. This is probably the point, actually--to remind us of the exclusivity of the fashion world by excluding us even at the level of looking and reading. If the book's aim is to convey the fashion world as a world shrouded in mystery, in this it admirably suceeds. It just doesn't inspire the requisite awe in me.
The two heavier, card stock pages at the front make it very awkward and difficult to skim through the book in a leisurely way, as one might wish with an eye-candy-ish, oversized "coffee-table" style book such as this. I believe these card stock pages are designed to be ripped out--they appear perforated near the gutter--but I didn't attempt to do so, since I knew I would be returning the book.
On the good side, this is a large, attractive hardcover book with a colorful, eye-catching, texturally pleasing matte paper-over-board cover and high-quality paper and color reproductions. This is the sort of book you see featured on the tables at stores like Anthropologie. A lot of those books are very satisfying; this one, not so much.
I am a photographer, illustrator, and art historian and have had a long career in publishing. I love books about artists, artisans, designers, and craftspeople who make unusual, quirky, creative things. So I wanted to--and fully expected to--love this book. As it is, I'm kind of amazed at all the accolades.
Its great to see people from all over the world profiled in such a creative and exploratory way. The photography seamlessly bonds in a very sensitive way both subject and creator. Exploring both person , home, studio and work I have found this book to be my favourite this year without a doubt. I love the personal approach to descriptions and interviews. This for me is fascinating and gels completely what the book is about. The book is a great visual feast. Excellent.
Must for fashionistas everywhere,great job great boo, thanks Mr Selby your awesomo
