Designed by MM (Paris) (you'll remember them as the dudes behind the epically cool Jane Birkin book we featured last week), the Pretty Much Everything is like an encyclopedia of inspiration. Within the first 20 pages you'll find Gisele Bunchden, Daria Werbowy, and Tasha Tilberg fashion editorials from the early '00s, a self portrait, and Yohji Yamamoto ads starring the iconic ginger Maggie Betts. Towards the middle of the book, the focus shifts to surreal collages and illustrations, then comes celebrity portraiture (say hi to Charlotte Gainsbourg, Michelle Williams, MIA, and Scarlett Johansson), and in the final pages you'll find man-about-town Glenn O'Brien's take on the duo's massive body of work.
Oh, and the book comes with a sticker set so that you can DIY your own version of the red script cover. Because how else are you going to make sure that no one steals your favorite book than to stamp it with your pictorial signature?
