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.

Ever tag along with a friend who tells you that this guy he knows is having a party? Then when you get there you sit transfixed at all the cool "stuff" this friend of a friend has in his space, cuz it turns out this person is incredibly creative? Thats what this book feels like. Todd Selby is taking you along and dropping in a few of his friends and you stand transfixed.

I recently flipped throught the book at a local BN and I was amazed. The book is just the right size, card stock and the picture and layout is near perfection. I got insipred w every page and I could not put it down. As soon as I got home I ordered it (much cheaper at amazon. than local retailer)! Congrats Selby. Fantasic job. I just hope you continue and I look for.ward to a second book.

I had heard about the website ([...]) and the photographer and was waiting to see this book. What I saw was far better than I could imagine. The detail and attention to the little things make this a real page turner. I highly suggest adding this to your coffee table.

5 Stars for Selby's photography. It truly IS a beautiful book. And, I enjoy flipping through my copy often.
0 Stars for the Introduction by "Leslie."

I'm disappointed in myself for not noticing this the first time I read the intro. Leslie claims (and Selby allows) in the book's first line of text that "If there's one thing that unites us in New York City, it's not love." Whoa! I'm not sure this is a place I'd like to hang out. She goes on to say, "In this city, we're always looking over each others' shoulders. There's always a hotter person we could be going out with. There's a cooler job just around the corner. Of course, someone else's apartment is always better than our own. The grass is always greener...We're a greedy bunch...A materialistic bunch too...Basically we all just want cool stuff. And we want it now."

Uhm, please speak for yourself. When I get past that self-centered introduction I find the book is full of beautiful photos of interesting people with whom I'd enjoy hanging out. Some of them even seem to care about others - even those who may be hotter, cooler, have better jobs, and lawns full of technicolor turf.

Suggestion: treat yourself to a copy of The Selby is in Your Place. Rip out page 7/8. Then glue page 6 to page 9.
Suddenly, you have an awesome book full of interesting people whose homes you get to peek inside.

It's now a taste of vanity without the bad attitude.

I love The Selby and have followed Todd Selby's work for a while now. This book has some of the things that I've seen of his before, which is why it is only getting a 4 star review... That being said I have found a lot of inspiration in this book and it's a fun book to flip though when you're looking to fill some time.

Love the book for inspiration and always great to see your favorite brands and the people behind them, and how creative minds live and work as well as co-exist with others. The idea behind the book is to showcase how some of he most private but yet public figures in the arts and leisure world lives, work, and play. Great photography and an intimate look at how family, friends, and peace is desired more now than ever.

love love love this book, very quirky and in most cases the homes are not 'staged' so if you like a little different from the normal interior design then get this book
