Selby is back with a behind-the-scenes look at the people and places that make the fashion world go round ■ ■ BY TO D D S E L BY  ■   F O R E W O R D BY S I M O N D O O N A N

T

he next installment in the bestselling “Selby” series, Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic

world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Chapters on individual artists bring

readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes, and include Selby’s signature photographs and watercolors of not only the artists and their environments, but also the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces. From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and bestkept secrets. Todd Selby is an interiors, fashion, and portrait photographer and illustrator. His photographs can regularly be seen in Vogue, British Vogue, Le Monde’s M Magazine, D Magazine, and more. He lives in Brooklyn. Simon Doonan is creative ambassador for Barneys New York and the author of The Asylum: A collage of couture reminiscences . . . and hysteria. He lives in New York City with his husband, Jonathan Adler, and Liberace, their Norwich terrier.

Brimming with concept art, preproduction designs, and character sketches, DreamWorks Animation marks the studio’s 20th anniversary and offers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access into its archives. An introduction by DreamWorks cofounder Katzenberg provides insider perspective on the studio’s most popular films, as does running commentary from artists and directors on all of DreamWorks’ 30 films to date. Ramin Zahed is the editor-in-chief of Animation Magazine and has been covering the animation and visual-effects world for more than 20 years. Previously he was a senior editor at Variety.

n her newest book, Lara Spencer teaches us how to navigate and negotiate the tricky world of flea markets.

Taking readers to her favorite haunts across the Northeast, Lara tackles nine common design dilemmas in nine different homes—including her own New York apartment—and solves them by finding and restoring flea-market finds to show that you can achieve a gorgeous space with value for your money. Mirroring the setup of her nine-part HGTV special, at the end of the process, should you wish to part with your find, she will show you the best ways to flip it and make some cash. Lara also tackles problems that many of us struggle with in our homes—too little space, too much stuff, and outof-date design—all in her witty and charming style. Lara Spencer is the author of the New York Times bestselling book I Brake for Yard Sales. She is an anchor on Good Morning America and the host of Flea Market Flip on HGTV. She lives in Connecticut and New York City.

9 781419 711749

girls in their homes and neighborhoods with their most prized possessions: their toys. From Texas to India, Malawi to China, Iceland, Morocco, and Fiji, Galimberti recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that Galimberti captures is moving, funny, and thought provoking. Gabriele Galimberti studied photography at Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence from 2000 to 2003. He then ran a professional photography laboratory and a photo gallery in Florence. His photos have appeared in international magazines including Newsweek, Le Monde, Geo, D–La Repubblica, lo Donna, Le Temps, Vanity Fair, and many others. Based in Florence, Italy, Galimberti is on the road all around the world, all year-round.
