Creativity at Work

It's here... the book behind the blog, and what a lush tome it is.

'Creativity at Work' is a collection interviews with a select group of designers, artists and all-round creative types by New Yorker Heather Clawson. Since 2007 Clawson has been documenting life at the sharp end of fashion and style, in both words and pictures, on her successful blog Habitually Chic.

The people included in her book work in the kind of spacious, colourful and effortlessly-chic furnished offices which may make you weep into your cornflakes; or hopefully, once you've cleaned up the mess, inspire you. As she says herself in the introduction: "it's never too late to make a change... Julia Child [life made into a film starring Meryl Streep] didn't start cooking until she was 36".
