Todd Selby gave us a sneak peek at his new book, Edible Selby, over the weekend. We had a lovely selection of snacks and enjoyed a lively presentation by Todd himself at agency Mother‘s NY office. Mother is also the mastermind behind the book’s design, so it was appropriate that the Edible Selby launch kicked off at their offices. Todd also personally signed copies of the book, which was an extra special treat.
In the book, Todd focuses his lens on the kitchen, showcasing 40 international food figures and their gardens, homes, and restaurants. Each profile is accompanied by a watercolor illustration and handwritten questionnaire. Also included are some super cute magnets for your fridge.
You can see Todd and get your signed copy of Edible Selby while he’s on his west coast book tour. Dates and tickets are listed below.
