IN­SPIR­ING WORDS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style News -

The new gen­er­a­tion of self-help books is pint-sized and punchy, as well as boast­ing a strong graphic look. From Do Book Co comes Do De­sign by de­signer Alan Moore, the lat­est in a se­ries of paperbacks that also in­cludes Do Im­pro­vise and Do Lead (£8.99 each; the­do­book.co). It in­vites us to think about how and why we cre­ate ob­jects and, as the cover clearly states, why beauty is the key to ev­ery­thing. Else­where, Swedish sta­tioner and de­signer Kikki K has pub­lished her ‘In­spir­ing Books’ se­ries (£9 each; kikki-k.com), which each fea­ture handy bite-sized tips on a wide va­ri­ety of sub­jects. Our favourite is Want a Home You Love? by in­te­rior de­signer Anna-carin Mcnamara, which ex­plains how cre­at­ing the per­fect space can have an im­pact on all ar­eas of your life.
