‘The Selby Is in Your Place’

On Sunday I headed over to my favorite bookstore Skylight Books and picked up a copy of Todd Selby’s new book The Selby Is In Your Place. It was funny actually, they also had a copy of The Sartorialist’s book as well; clearly being a photographer and showcasing your work online is really paying off. Nonetheless I passed up on Mr. Schuman’s book and stuck with just The Selby.

The Selby Is In Your Place is a collection of photos and questionnaires from the blog, but put together in a curated way with bits of commentary. It’s actually really nice to see his photos on the printed page, you just get a better sense of these places when you’re not staring at a screen. The book is filled with some eclectic folks and it’s really fun seeing the nuances of their lives.

If you’re a fan of Mr. Selby’s blog I’d definitely suggest checking out this book. I’ve also put some more photos under the cut, so check those out as well.

    I’m glad you posted about this – I’ve been thinking about whether or not to pick this book up and I think I should. You’re right, the real thing is different than looking at a computer. Plus it will be fun to look at 10 or 20 years from now!

    I’m also thinking about getting this. It’s like a physical blog. And the images are great.
