Finding Vivian Maier

06 . 23 . 14

I was aware of the photographer Vivian Maier because the publisher of my book Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work, powerHouse Books has published two books of her work, Vivian Maier: Self-Portraits and Vivian Maier: Street Photographer. I wasn’t aware that her recognition as a photographer only came posthumously after I saw the trailer for the documentary […]

Creativity at Work

10 . 30 . 12

It’s hard to be excited about the publication of my book Creativity at Work today when some people don’t have homes or electricity right now.

Enduring Style

03 . 07 . 12

If Gary Cooper were alive today, he’d probably be photographed by all the street style bloggers outside the men’s shows during fashion week.  He might even have his own menswear blog.  I jest on that last statement of course but it is true that he did really have “enduring style” as the title of the […]

Take Ivy

07 . 22 . 10

I came across the book Take Ivy online but when I realized it wouldn’t be released until August, I made a mental note to order it later. Imagine my surprise and delight when the publisher emailed me a few days later and asked if I would like to receive an advance copy. Would I like […]
