9781900828291: Paul Smith: You Can Find Inspiration in Everything*: *And if You Can't, Look Again

New paperback edition! Called, "A ripe blend of master craftsmanship and Monty Pythonesque lunacy" by Monument and, "A treasure trove," by The Bookseller, You Can Find Inspiration in Everything is now in its third printing and still going strong. Far from being just a fashion monograph, this volume "images" Paul Smith's brain on the page, presenting original and often humorous thoughts and ideas--found in shop windows, advertising campaigns, photographs and souvenirs brought back from world travels--that became the inspiration for the look of the season. In addition to texts and images by the renowned British designer himself, collaborations include an account of Smith's teenage obsession with cycling by Guardian sportswriter Richard Williams; a fictional text by celebrated novelist James Flint; interviews with neuroscientist Dr. Semir Zeki and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist; two posters; and The Bunny, a comic book within the book, complete with a cryptic crossword, puzzles, a fold-out board game and illustrations by various acclaimed artists and designers.
