Book Description

16 May 2012 My Cool
Building on the success of My Cool Caravan and My Cool Campervan in 2010 and 2011, this follow-up book celebrates the humble and not so humble shed, from artists' studios to beach huts, and the diverse ways in which owners are styling them. My Cool Shed features 35 sheds, small cabins, garden rooms, beach huts, modern architectural mini masterpieces and other small spaces given purpose by their owners to pursue their hobbies, careers, creative endeavours or just to find some peace and solitude. The book includes high-quality stylish photography to show a wide range of well styled and elegant sheds, cabins, dens and hidewaways in attractive locations. The owners' stories and accompanying style notes offer insight as well as inspiration. This is not a 'how to' book, although a sourcebook will be included, but more of a 'feel good' book and provider of inspiration.

More About the Author

"For me, styling and art direction have two purposes - to help tell a story without words, and to enhance the innate natural beauty present in people, objects, and places. Whether I am working with an individual, character, scene, or on a book page, it is the distilling of these 'stories' into effortlessly pleasing and purely visual form that excites my enthusiasm for disciplines I work in, and the people I work with."

Jane Field is an experienced multi-disciplinary stylist, art director and author whose work crosses the boundaries of film, television and print. Her work has been recognised and awarded internationally.

Jane established her styling career with work for many esteemed stills photographers. She rapidly progressed from the still image into moving pictures, and for a decade worked in costume design for advertising and film. Her clients have included global brands such as Nike, the BBC and Pepsi, and she has worked with high-profile directors including Tony Scott, Jake Scott, Chris Palmer, Daniel Barber and Tarsem.

In 2006 she began the creation of the 'My Cool' lifestyle and interior book series. Each is an affectionately curated collection of outdoors life seen through images of caravan, campervan, sheds and kitchen interiors.

Jane's individualistic and creative take on life spawned the hit Channel 4 show 'George Clarke's Amazing Spaces' where as well as being the creative inspiration behind the show she works as creative consultant and stylist and co-authors the books accompanying the series.

Jane lives in London and works with clients and creatives in film, stills and advertising around the world.

Review

All in all, it's a very good eye-candy ride through the world of tiny cabins and sheds. --http://relaxshacks.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/10-shedscabins-would-you-live-in-these.html

My Cool Shed features a wealth of pint-sized havens from a covetable tree house to bijou beach huts for those in search of escape and inspiration. --The Mail, May 2012

The most thumbed-over book in the Times2 office at the moment is My Cool Shed, a truly filthy work of property porn so addictive it is hard to stop reading it long enough to actually write this piece...Among the gems that they found were an ivy-covered allotment shed in bucolic idyll on the edge of a London park; an exquisite traditional beach hut in Frinton; a wood and glass summerhouse in Sweden; a book-lined shed at the end of a Hackney garden; a shack in West Virginia guaranteed to inspire fantasies of running away to find your inner Davy Crockett. --Damian Whitworth, Times2, June 2012

A glorious celebration of stylish hideaways…a truly beguiling selection all gorgeously photographed. --Good Book Guide, Dec issue

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting away from it all 2 May 2012
By Wendy
Format:Hardcover
What a gorgeous book showing the extraordinary range of hideaways that people have created for their own personal needs. If you ever feel that you need to get away from it all, either to work or just relax you'll find something in this book that appeals.
The photography is great and picks up on the quirky detail that makes these 'sheds' unique while the accompanying text personalises the buildings by telling you about their owners as well as giving information about the interiors and location.
This book would make a perfect gift and will inspire you to create your own cool shed.

3.0 out of 5 stars my cool shed review 22 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The spaces in this book were ok but nothing mind blowing. Cover looked good and the title suggested it was going to have lots of really funky places in it but only a few as it happens.
