There are some super awesome books by bloggers.
I’m not talking about the ‘how to blog’ books.
I’m talking about books that non-bloggers will enjoy as much as bloggers.
Here’s my pick of books authored by bloggers that have either already landed on my bookshelf or are on my Christmas wish-list.
Hopefully the list will give you food for thought for your own Christmas wish list or inspiration for Christmas gift buying.
Humans of New York
This is my absolute favourite book I’ve bought this year, I can barely express in words just how much I love it.
I discovered Brandon Stanton’s work via his Humans of New York Instagram stream and from there landed on his blog, which he started in 2010. The book borne of the blog became an instant #1 New York Times bestseller.
Design Bloggers At Home
Design Bloggers At Home showcases the super stylish homes of a cohort of home style bloggers from around the globe, including a couple of my favourites… UK based French sisters Bodie and Fou and London lady in Sweden… My Scandinavian Home.
Created by London based interiors journalist and blogger, Ellie Tennant this is a coffee table book that is actually useful. It’s a photo feast of gorgeous interiors that are also attainable, if you make use of the information and inspiration divulged in the book.
Bright Bazaar: Embracing Colour For Make-You-Smile Style
This book is on my Christmas wish list. I love Will’s blog, which he founded in 2009, to document is love of all things bright, including some mouth-wateringly bright recipes and Will’s own brand of perfectly posed selfies.
The Bright Bazaar book is a helpful tome, to guide you through making the most of your home through the strategic and creative use of colour. WANT!
The Little Paris Kitchen
If I could live my 20s again, I’d copy Rachel Khoo and move to Paris to study Cordon Bleu cooking… well ok, I’d probably just move to Paris and eat out lots. But still, what a life…
Rachel is now a successful blogger, author and international food creative, creating six-course dinners and workshops in the far flung corners of the world.
The Little Paris Kitchen serves up 120 simple French-with-a-twist recipes such as a Croque Madame muffin and Provencal lavender and lemon roast chicken. Through the book Rachel demonstrates how we can all bring a touch of French culinary magic into our everyday kitchens and dining rooms.
By Ari Seth Cohen
If you’re a woman, you need to read this book. Indeed, if you’re a human you need to read this book, because it’s a celebration of the advanced style of older women and men, something that our Western world needs to get better at, instead of constantly worshiping at the alter of youth.
Ari Seth Cohen is a New York street style photographer with an eye for stylish elders. His blog, Advanced Style has led to both a documentary and the book.
The blog, the documentary and the book ooze the proof that personal style advances with age. Grow old gracefully, grow old disgracefully, but however you do it, you can do it in style.
Hope you find something you like or something you know one of your nearest and dearest will like in this list.
