Paul Smith: You Can Find Inspiration in Everything

Edited by Robert Violette. Introduction by William Gibson. Text by Paul Smith, Richard Williams, James Flint, Glen Baxter, Paul Slater, Mick Brownfield, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Semir Zeki, Jim Davies, et al.

Paul Smith (born 1946) is a multi-award-winning designer who works in a variety of media and is best known for his menswear collections. This book, one of his most personal and exuberant projects, has been variously described as A ripe blend of master craftsmanship and Monty Pythonesque lunacy (Ink), and A treasure trove for anyone interested in fashion and art (The Bookseller). The book includes an introduction by William Gibson (in English, French, German, Italian and Japanese) and collaborations with and/or writings by Richard Williams, James Flint, Glen Baxter, Paul Slater, Mick Brownfield, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Semir Zeki, Jim Davies and others. Browsing these pages is a delightful excursion into Smithís flair for eccentric, subversive detail; his dedication . . . .go to book page >>
