Book Description

6 April 2009
Far from being a fashion monograph, this award-winning book images Paul Smiths brain on to the page, presenting original and often humorous thoughts and ideas in shop windows, in advertising campaigns, in photographs and souvenirs brought back from world travels that became the inspiration for the book of the season. In addition to texts and images by Paul Smith himself, collaborations include: an account of his teenage obsession with cycling by Richard Williams, sports writer on the Guardian; a fiction by celebrated novelist James Flint; interviews with neuroscientist Dr Semir Jeki 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great creative input 27 Aug 2009
You must see it to believe it. Both form and content are inspiring. I have been "reading" if that is possible, different pieces of it and I have enjoyed every bit.
How he (Paul Smith) succeded without much trying. Consider that he is a designer without much (really not at all) formal education on the trade. Possibly it will not work the same way for you or me, but it really shows a way. Has everything to do with the improv movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 15 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the book again after having the priviledge to meet Paul Smith in person. The time I read the copy of Esat Edin, which I gave back long time ago. It's brilliant and helpful. On one hand the book promotes Pual Smith - as it should do, but on the other hand it contains sincere and open phrases of Paul Smith - which I think every one should read.
