    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Staff Pick

What began as a web site (www.theselby.com) devoted to pictures of photographer/illustrator Todd Selby's friends in their homes quickly exploded into a full-time project that took him on a whirlwind tour of interesting people's homes the world over. In The Selby Is in Your Place, Selby showcases some of his favorite visits in a raucously artistic collection sure to inspire oohs and ahhs and more than a little house envy.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some of the most important people in fashionand#8212;Chanel, Alaand#239;a, Yves Saint Laurent, Pucci, Kenzo, and Missoniand#8212;are known for their public image and their iconic designs. But what kind of world have they cultivated behind closed doors? From France to Italy, from England to Morocco, come along on a private visit to the remarkable homes of couturiers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities. Photographer Ivan Terestchenko shows the dand#233;cor, works of art, and the personal collections of these legendary designers. Some interiors, such as Chaneland#8217;s apartment at 31 rue Cambon, are mythic, while others like those of Giorgio Armaniand#8217;s chand#226;let or Vanessa Seward, Azzaroand#8217;s head designer, are completely unconventional. From minimal (Nicole Farhi) to exotic (Franca Sozanni), to a deceptively simple Frenchand#160;apartment (Loulou de La Falaise), this book explores the spaces and places created by some of fashionand#8217;s biggest names.

Praise for "Beyond Chic"

"Photographer Ivan Terestchenko traveled the globe--from Ottavio Missoni's Venetian Manse to Christian Louboutin's adobe home in Luxor, Egypt--to capture the more than 200 images in this lush and inspiring bit of voyeurism." — Details

"Photographer Ivan Terestchenko is known for his work photographing the homes of some of fashion's most notable names. Their iconic designs are well known, but what kind of style do they have behind closed doors? Take a peek into some seriously fashionable houses." -MarthaStewart.com

"Manolo Blahnik's house is like a pair of his shoes: elegant, well-proportioned and far more comfortable than it might appear. And it is appearances that are often at stake in Mr. Terestchenko's 19 beautiful photo essays on the homes of designers as varied as Azzedine Alaia, Vittorio Missoni, and Reed Krakoff." - Wall Street Journal

"Terestchenko opens doors to the homes of an extended collection of notable names in fashion....Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home invites readers into the private homes of these very public tastemakers and a lustrous list of equally-inspiring courteriers, stylists, muses, and fashion personalities." -Veranda

"Terestchenko draws parallels between the aesthetics of renowned fashion companies and their creators' interior stylings. The visual study is more than just a discussion about decor." -Lonny

"Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home by Ivan Terestchenko may just be the most beautiful book of the past few years." -From the Right Bank to the Left Coast

"People love to see the homes of fashion designers. In Beyond Chic: Great Fashion Designers at Home...Ivan Terestchenko takes readers into the private spaces of the late designers Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, as well as Azzedine Alaia and Vaness Seward, to name just a few." -Habitually Chic

"A fascinating look into the private residences of some of fashion's most influential designers, tastemakers, and stylists from photographer Ivan Terestchenko. This volume of eye candy spans both the globe and a wide array of dand#233;cor styles, highlighting the diversity of the residents and their corresponding brands." --Domainehome.com

Synopsis:

Photographer Todd Selby is back, this time focusing his lens on the kitchens, gardens, homes, and restaurants of more than 40 of the most creative and dynamic figures working in the culinary world today. He takes us behind the scenes with Noma chef Renandeacute; Redzepi in Copenhagen; to Tokyo to have a slice with pizza maker Susumu Kakinuma; and up a hilltop to dine at an inn without an innkeeper in Valdobbiadene. Each profile is accompanied by watercolor illustrations and a handwritten questionnaire, which includes a signature recipe. Reveling in the pleasures of a taco at the beach, foraging for wild herbs, and the art of the perfectly cured olive, Selby captures the food we love to eat and the people who passionately grow, cook, pour, and serve these incredible edibles every day.

Praise for Edible Selby:

andldquo;Todd Selby has turned his curious eye to the kitchens of some of the worldandrsquo;s most imaginative cooks, artisans, and foragers. Far too often, food and the people who produce it are hidden behind closed doors or lost in an industrial food system, so itandrsquo;s heartening to see this book champion those who have nothing to hide. With Toddandrsquo;s trademark good humor and disarmingly quirky style, Edible Selby is a pure celebration of the creativity and authenticity of the wonderful individuals who are bringing real food to the table.andrdquo;

- Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant

andldquo;Todd Selbyandrsquo;s foray into the world of food is every bit as intriguing as his eccentric take on the world of interiors. Long live Signor Selby!andrdquo;

- Simon Doonan, Barneys New York creative ambassador

andldquo;Edible Selby captures the energy and excitement of today's food world. This book is pure Selby.andrdquo;

- Thomas Keller, The French Laundry

andldquo;Books On My Gifts Listandhellip;Photographer Todd Selbyandrsquo;s scrapbook reportage on passionate cooks and famous chefs around the world. Messy, magnificent, inspiring.andrdquo;

andmdash;Food and Wine magazine

andldquo;Exploring the world for food, thatandrsquo;s what Edible Selby is all aboutandhellip;and hopefully, you get really hungry when you read it.andrdquo;

andmdash;New York Daily News

andldquo;Photographer Todd Selby has an uncanny eye for the beauty of the unconventional kitchen; in his second book, he features cooks, chefs, and other culinary creative types in their workspacesandmdash;complete with recipes and witty hand-drawn illustrations.andrdquo;

andmdash;Saveur

andldquo;This is a book to read on the couch and leave there. Next youandrsquo;ll want to go to the kitchen and get crazy and make a mess. You will let your hair down, and the meal will be infused with life.andrdquo;
