So in the wee hours of the a.m. in a bout of insomnia, I went online and purchased the much anticipated “bible” of street style photography, The Sartorialist by Scott Schuman.


Just released yesterday in the U.S., this book is a must have for all, not just the fashionistas that read Scott’s Blog or those who work in the fashion and photography industry. If you’re a professional, educator, or simply an enthusiast of history, culture, anthropology , or even sociology, The Sartorialist is a definite book to add to your reading repertoire.

One of our favorite irreverent agent provocateurs, the cavalier yet brilliant music man, Kanye West, summed up Schuman’s work best:

“Scott doesn’t just take pictures, he captures emotion. He is not just a photographer. He’s a historian marking the feelings of this generation one photo at a time.”

– Kanye West

So go get some style inspiration and pick up a copy of The Satorialist, and be sure to check out these other great style and fashion resources on Amazon:
