I love inspiration boards — those collections of clippings, photos, swatches, natural and found objects that inspire collections, home decor, and a life well-lived.
So I was particularly excited to get the press release announcing Assouline’s Fall 2010 publication of Beaton:The Art of the Scrapbook.
He did dozens of them apparently. Sotheby’s in London holds them all. Beaton lived during a very exciting time and, self-taught, went on to become a world-renowned photographer, stage and film designer.
Published by the very chic and stylish Assouline, Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook won’t be cheap at USD$250. But at 400 pages and featuring 600 photographs, this more than a glance into one of the most iconic figures of the fashion world. Cultivate your eye and draw inspiration from a master.
