When I bought it, and it was delivered I was so excited.
I opened the book first Sunday morning, just to flip some pages and see what's inside, but soon I flipped to the first page and started reading. I was reading it all day long, with just a few breaks for coffee, food, and toilet.
I like the structure of the book, dividing the spaces according to the style they represented. I love the photos, if I had one, I will use the magnifying glass to watch the details. Really useful is the final part when Sally gives some practical advice to consider before you will start your own studio.
Meanwhile reading, it occurs to me that I really want to have my own "studio" space - if not a separate room, just a part of the room dedicated to my artwork is something I need to develop myself.
I read the book that Sunday, till the last word. And my first thought after this was - Sally should make the second (and maybe third, fourth...) part of this book, showing another artists' studios. Maybe with some interviews with them, about the spaces and their work, what's their favorite part of the studio, what they would do different, what's the one advice they will give for one who wants to have his/hers own creative space, etc.
I really love that book, it was really inspiring for me.
the book has some good tips on planning your studio mixed in but mostly I found it to be a beautiful book of some fab studios. Just remember to keep your realistic filter on. These are beautiful studios that someone, or a team of people, have spent considerable time styling for each shot. And a fab job of styling them they have!
The large hardcover edition has three sections. In the first, Sally covers Studio Inspiration - decor ideas and styles that will suit all tastes and reflect your creativity. In the second section, Sally looks a the different ways your studio space needs to be used based on spatial and equipment requirements of your Studio Work. Finally, Studio Elements looks at all sorts of practical choices and considerations.
"If this book inspires you to be creative and make a space where you can express yourself, that's the best result I could hope for."
