Lagerfeld's Library & More from The Selby
Fashion and interiors photographer and illustrator Todd Selby is the latest blogosphere star to bring out a book of his work. The cult favorite auteur of The Selby features the eclectic homes and favorite spaces of Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Simon Doonan, Erin Wasson, Helena Christensen and more in The Selby Is In Your Place (Abrams, $35). Lagerfeld's massive library in Paris is particularly astonishing. The book consists of over thirty profiles, most of which have never been seen before, accompanied by Selby's watercolor portraits of the subjects and objects from their homes, and illustrated questionnaires along with the photographs. Cities represented include New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, and London. Like the site that spawned it, the book is an alluring "insider's view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail."
