"Influence" by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

Whilst browsing at Borders this week I came across a beautiful new coffee table book by the Olsen Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley called Influence.

The girls got to pick the brains of those that have not just inspired them in life and business but that greatly influence the world of art, film, fashion and photography.

The book edited by fashion and arts writer Derek Blasberg transcribes interviews which give great insight into the lives of the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson and Lauren Hutton amongst other creative giants.

The book is beautifully designed by Rodrigo Corral and has a very personal feel. I love that hand written notes and snap shots are included along side the slick photography of Rankin who shot the cover and many interior shots.

Although the book will appeal to those who have followed Mary-Kate and Ashley’s career as the book contains photographs from the Olsen’s personal collections as well as their thoughts and anecdotes the books focus really is on celebrating those interviewed and gives fascinating insight into the world of those featured.

I am a real book worm and a sucker for a good coffee table book so if you have any recommendations for books that you think would be a beautiful or inspiring addition to my collection leave a comment below….
