I love books. They are objects that will never go out of style. Fashion books are intriguing through their content and specifically their design. But, more than just beautiful on the outside, they are gateways to infinite realms. For someone who loves fashion and engaging with it mostly through imagery, I find fashion books to be useful as a tool for learning more about the designer or brand. They are also eclectic pieces of art, perfect to have sitting out just to admire. They are both educational and visually stimulating. I think I found a new inexpensive hobby.
