A must-have coffee table/fashion book by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

One of my favourite coffee table book that focuses on fashion and art is:

Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

In this book (published in 2008), Mary-Kate and Ashley show their influence in fashion and style; they interview each other and the people who have influenced them like Karl Lagerfield, Lauren Hutton, Christian Louboutin, and many others.

“A coffee table book is an oversized, usually hard-covered book whose purpose is for
display on a table intended for use in an area in which one entertains guests and from
which it can serve to inspire conversation.”


The book starts with an introduction written by Mary-kate and Ashley. In the introduction, Ashley explains that the book “is comprised of conversations my sister and I have had with artists, designers, photographers, writers, and personalities who come from different backgrounds, industries, age groups, and points of view.”

The book is filled with interesting interviews with famous artists, designers, and writers.
There are some personal photos of Mary-Kate and Ashley, however, the book also contains info of several designers who influenced the Mary-Kate and Ashley. It is, therefore, a must-have for those who are interested in Mary-Kate and Ashley, fashion, photography and art/design!

What is your favourite inspiring book at the moment?

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if
    this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
