More About the Author

Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator. His project The Selby offers an insider's view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail. The Selby began in June 2008 as a website, www.theselby.com, where Todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby's website became so influential --with up to 100,000 unique visitors daily--that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.

These joint projects have included a large ad campaign and web project with Nike, collaborations with Louis Vuitton and Hennessy, a solo show at colette, international ad campaigns, work for Casa Brutus, The New York Times T Magazine, Le Monde M Magazine and the London Observer. Todd's first book, The Selby is In Your Place (April 2010) focuses on creative people such as authors, musicians, artists and designers in their homes and the second called Edible Selby (October 2012) focuses on the kitchens, gardens, homes and restaurants of the most dynamic figures in the culinary world. The third book in the 'Selby' series, Fashionable Selby, will be released in March 2014 and will explore the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today's most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more.

Anyone who watch Bravo, HGTV or The Food Channel, and who had the delight of reading Edible Selby, will understand why I think this will be the basic for a hit TV show. It's an entertaining and unique cookbook for foodies and style fans. From the very first page of beautifully shot photographs and stylish hand written messages, you see a great deal of love went into this production that travelled around the world. Even it's pullout stickers and colorful table of contents will identify this cookbook is like no other. It's a travel and pop culture feast too.

Todd Selby is on his way to building "The Selby" into the next superstar brand. A must read and proudly display at home book, and perfect for gifting.

I got my copy of Edible Selby a few weeks ago and I'm definitely getting it for all my food-obsessed friends for Christmas. I've loved The Selby's work for years and it's great to see him collect all these different food people together in one place. The dishes look amazing and the photography is gorgeous. The magnets are a fun extra, and I can't wait to try out the recipes.

I cant begin to tell you how excited I was to finally receive my copy of Todd Selby's latest episode Edible Selby. The book is wonderfully illustrated and rich in content. Todd seems to have a way of capturing the truth in people, and this book is no exception. From all of the amazing people in their spectacular environments, to the mouth watering food that habituates their kitchens and dinner tables, this book is a fantasy that promises to keep on giving. I cant wait to try out the recipes, and the fridge magnets (illustrated by Todd himself) are such a great touch. I highly recommend this piece of stunning literature, and the only question left to say is where are you going next Todd? We are all eagerly awaiting your next endeavor...

Loved this book for its delightful idiosyncrasies! Photographs of food makers of all stripes aside hand-written interviews by Selby made me rush to my kitchen to whip up the salted caramel apple pie from the Four & Twenty Blackbirds sketched recipe. The author captures with grace, the stories of food makers in hidden places, bustling cities, and backyard beaches. The underlying focus of the book is more about foodways and culture than recipes, leading the reader to open h/her mind to the myriad ways creatively prepared food is important to our planet and its diverse peoples. This storybook is a visual trip and from opening the cover to reading to the end took me through one entire night!

Over the years of watching Todd Selby's work grow and mature it has been an honor to have a small window into his world. His pictures in "The Edible Selby" show people, places and the sharing of culture through food like they have not been seen before. Most of these places he captures I will never have the chance to visit but this book makes me feel like I have. Get it now, one for yourself and a few more to pass around. This book is the perfect holiday gift for a loved one or coworker.

A fantastic read for those who seriously love food, and all the designer-types who crave visual stimulation. All pages are filled with The Selby's watercolor illustrations, handwritten questionnaires, and signature recipes from the talented people he documents.
Truly a fantastic book I will come back to time and again for illustration, food, and photography inspiration. Thank you Selby!

What a fantastic book! It's so wonderfully shot and designed, and the people chosen to be in it are compelling and very interesting. I want to go to all of these places!!
It's a great follow on from his previous book but still staying within the same realm. It's a hard thing to do but I feel that book has really pulled it off.
