Beci’s World – Books!

by Jenny Butler
Monday 9th January 2012

Happy New Year Friends and welcome to the Guest Blog for 2012! We are starting off a very exciting year with one of TDF most favourite people – Beci Orpin! All week we’ll be seeing into Beci’s World, starting off with Books. Speaking of which, leave a comment on any of Beci’s posts before 10pm on Thursday for your chance to win a copy of Compendium of Me by Beci Orpin. Thanks to Erm Books and Beci for this giveaway! -Jenny x

hello TDF readers! welcome to my guest blog. this week i’ll be showing you some of the things that help me along the path of design goodness. things i use every day to keep my inspired and happy. first off: BOOKS

i LOVE books. so much. they are the one thing i will never hesitate spending money on. subsequently i have a pretty big, and ever-expanding book collection. its becoming a bit of a problem – the amount i books i have is far outweighing the amount of bookshelf space i have. thus, my desk more often than not, looks like this:

and my bookshelves look like this:

but, its worth it!

japan for me is book mecca! japanese design books are the best, i love them because they are often so specific. the book 2nd from top left is just about woven ribbons! amazing!

i brought these japanese trademarks and logo books about 10 years ago. between the 3 of them they span the 1970’s and ever single page is an absolute goldmine. they are expensive but i think i have looked at them at least once a week since i brought them

but you don’t have to travel overseas or spend a lot of money to get great books. a lot of my collection have come from opp-shops (btw, there is no shame for buying a book just because it has a great cover!)

i also have a bad habit of collecting series of books (hello ebay):

and zines too – i love zines and small publications:

but, all time favourite book is this one

i had lusted after it at a friends house in LA one time, but she had found it at a thrift store, so i thought i there was no chance of finding it (this is before the days of abe books). the next time raph returned to the US he secretly hunted down a copy and drive for half a day to collect it from a bookshop in the middle of nowhere. pretty awesome.

    I so get what you mean about books… I could happily spend hours lingering in book stores and the same in front of the bookshelves in op shops. Your book looks amazing – congratulations!

    Compendium of Me…stunning colourful and fun!

  • Mandy 3 years ago

    Hi Bec
    Thanks for brightening up my Monday morning. And convincing me that buying books (even for just a cover or a couple of images inside) is money well spent.

  • Olivia 3 years ago

    Another book lover here! Love the colours in your new book too – very much my style :)

  • sam 3 years ago

    looks like an awesome collection. love you work Beci!

  • Mel 3 years ago

    A women after my own heart….many a time, actually most times, the books on my shelf have been chosen because I loved the cover… sometimes with absolutely no intention to read the book!

  • Rhonda 3 years ago

    Wow great ideas for quilts …thanks SOO much

  • Sally 3 years ago

    Colour makes me happy and inspires me so I know a copy of this
    beautifu book on my coffee table would be a lovely vision every day.

  • Carrie 3 years ago

    wow! a colour explosion of loveliness!!

  • Jessica 3 years ago

    Being a Melbournian I seem to be always dressed in black, but I’m breaking free baby! I ♥ the excitement, vibrancy, frivolity, and joy of colour! Your designs spread smiles and happiness. Just beautiful! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  • Melissa Simonetta 3 years ago

    wow i love all these books, what a collection! love beci’s work and would LOVE her new book!

  • Franka 3 years ago

  • Anna Walker 3 years ago

    A girl after my own heart…you can never have too many books, and I need one more – I think you know the one ;)

    yay! I buy books on the value of their cover alone too, although thats not the only reason I buy them! Books are like friends. I love your collection especially the older 2nd hand ones – so, so much design gold! Loved looking at these.

    YOUR BOOK COLLECTION IS AMAZING!!!

  • Sarah 3 years ago

    Love your book collection, especially the Wood Applique gem. One of my most prized books is an early 80’s womens self defence manual written by Bob Jones (body guard to the likes of Fleetwood Mac!) called “Hands Off!” which features tutorial images with Stevie Nicks! So cool!

  • picturette 3 years ago

    i’m guilty of judging books by their cover, and of buying them for that reason only!

  • Sally 3 years ago

    Wow! love what you do Beci. I’m off to unpack my studio, and get out all my old children’s books!

  • Kylie 3 years ago

    I too sometimes buy books just because they have lovely covers.

  • Amy 3 years ago

    These shelves and books are so “Beci Orpin” I would have guessed that this was your guest blog without being told. I love your style and your wonderful colours!

  • Annie M 3 years ago

  • Jen 3 years ago

    I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for Beci to guest blog here! It just makes sense. The 3 blogs that I make sure to check every day are Design Files, Beci Orpins Blog and Design Sponge. Today I am a very happy Chica!! It was also fun to play spotto with the (comparatively only a few) books that I own too! I can’t wait to make my own way to Japan. Much much love to you creative ladies x

  • lucie 3 years ago

    love beci’s work – makes me happy

  • Arya 3 years ago

    So colorful and beautiful!

  • Pepper Baldwin 3 years ago

    how how lovely! So many bright colours to brighten my day!

  • Laura 3 years ago

    I’m also guilty of buying too many books. I spend way more money on books than clothes, but the books never go out of style. I dream to, one day, have a (huge & colorful) personal library in my home.

  • Rel 3 years ago

    Beci can start her own library – please do!

  • amanda 3 years ago

    Thank you for sharing this. I have just spent my summer holidays spring cleaning (in amongst beach sunshine and pine lime splices). The last three days, I have sifted through our entire wall sized book collection. Late last night as I was finishing up, I came across one of my favourites – a book that sparked both memories and my imagination as I rediscovered the colour illustrations of Richard Scarry’s Best Ever Story Book. Complete with mended pages and my proudly hand scribbled name from when i was little, it’s hard to believe it is 29 years old. Amazing the stories a book can tell, let alone the ones inside. Thanks for a beautiful, delightful way to start the day. Best wishes.

  • Karen 3 years ago

    I too love books and colour, great guest blog to start the year

  • Karen 3 years ago

    Great inspiration to start the year books & colour what could be better than that!

    The book looks gorgeous. I’d love to own a copy!

  • Monika (MB Captured) 3 years ago

    What a great post! I had a big smile on my face scrolling through this one, I too have a love for books. It is sad but my fav’s are still my massssssie collection of Golden Books (remember those!?)

  • Matilda 3 years ago

    Thanks Beci and TDF for such a lovely way to start my morning. Beci, I adore and am in total awe of your colour use, it’s one of my thoughts (not quite resolution) to bring more colour into my life and work this year. Thanks for the terrific inspiration!

  • andherimagination 3 years ago

    It is certainly evident where Beci gets her sense of colour from! What a lovely collection of awesome.

  • lauren 3 years ago

    beautiful colours and what a book collection!

  • Pippa 3 years ago

    Thanks for sharing your personal book collection and the sources for your inspirational work. A Beci Orpin book to add to my collection would be a complete joy!

  • Nise 3 years ago

    I’ve been following you since you spoke at semi-permanent way back when. I love your style and its so nice of you to share your favourite things and inspiration for the rest of us. Thanks again!

    I too need more bookshelf space! But i’d gladly make room & pride of place for Beci’s gorgeous new book. Thank you so much. Fingers crossed :) Louise xo

  • Carla 3 years ago

    I agree, books are an amazing source for design work. I lament my students lack of enthusiasm for books, and I’m trying to change that. My all time favourite is the Sheila Hicks book ‘Weaving as Metaphor’. Beautiful design and wonderful work – check it out if you haven’t already. Love your stuff by the way Beci! :)

  • miss murray 3 years ago

    Beci, your wide range of works continue to inspire me as a designer and teacher. I love passing on ideas to my students and they ooohhhhh and ahhhhhh at every piece. congratulations! Kate :)

  • Cassandra 3 years ago

    Beci, I have been following your work for awhile now. I am designer
    obsessed with colour who wishes I could illustrate like you. Love that you agree there is no shame in buying a book just for its cover….or in my case collecting anything colourful that catches my eye. Congrats on the book.

  • Rachael 3 years ago

    What beautiful books! Would love a copy of Beci’s book — would match the Beci cushion and artwork that take pride of place in my apartment!

  • Pele 3 years ago

    I feel happy just looking at your book – so bright and beautiful! Well done x

  • Alan 3 years ago

    Awesballs! Thanks for the blog… and the book! Japanese design books reminds me of a gift wrapping book mum has, some crazy origami moves involved… Look forward to picking up a copy of the compendium to give to my sis and new born niece who reportedly has begun seeing in colour… =o)

    Thx again and happy Beci Orpin day to y’all too!

  • gluten free gift 3 years ago

    Lots of comments! Impressed by your collection – I too love books and have a pretty big collection of kiddie books for a spinster of 43. I get so much inspiration from them – especially the mid century to 1970’s ones… when printing method limitations forced some great creative solutions.

  • laura 3 years ago

    fave guest blog ever (sorry ro!) can’t wait to read the rest of the week.

  • Anne 3 years ago

    Woah, love it. I too am slowly developing an inspirational book collection of my own. Your book would fit perfectly into that collection…

  • Nola 3 years ago

    I’ve always admired the work of Beci Orpin, and have been fortunate to see her talk about it on a few occasions. It’s nice to see that we share a common interest in books, even though my collection is tiny in comparison, but the feeling is the same. I’m looking forward to seeing what else Beci has to say during her time on the guest blog, hopefully there will be some more similarities :)

  • Lauren 3 years ago

    Gorgeous looking book, as usual from Beci. Love it, and also share the same obsession with books, my thing is interiors, architecture and art. I’d probably spend my very last dollar on books, I’m hopeless.

  • Colleen 3 years ago

    Beci, I bet you still get more inspiration from books on a shelf (or table or chair) than you do on a Kindle!

  • Imogen 3 years ago

    wowee what a collection – i’m inspired just looking at the images, can only imagine owning them all!
    love your work beci, esp the prints you’ve done for gorman (my fave label)

  • eat my shorts 3 years ago

    I think I’ve got a bit of a crush on your bookshelves! :)

  • annelouise 3 years ago

    i too am guilty of spending too much on books…(came home with two today, now that i think of it).

    judging books by their covers is fine with me, as is judging them (and magazines) by the paper they’re printed on… nothing beats a heavy, matte tome!

  • E-Gene 3 years ago

    Everything that Bec does is always beautiful. Yet another beautiful publication. If I don’t win it, I’ll probably end up buying it.

  • Ms Rabbit 3 years ago

    I also have more books than space for them. I really like the look of those Japanese books. Where can you find Japanese craft books?

  • Rebecca ng 3 years ago

    I’d also like to know where you can find Japanese design books here or online…

  • Bella Foxtrot 3 years ago

    I love all the pics of your books. I struggle with not buying beautiful books. I live in a tiny unit so there is just not enough room. I have a temporary solution for now – I buy them and give them away to other people. At least they are mine – just for a little while :)

    OMG!!! only day 1 and SO many ridiculously nice comments!!! THANKS so much. i’m well beyond chuffed. oh and ABE books is an online store where you can buy second hand books – it links up to lots of second hand booksellers around the world and is the BEST. and japanese craft books – i think kinokuniya in sydney has a good range? my kitly in melbourne also has some… and if you can read any japanese ebay japan might also be a good place to try?

  • Tomoyo 3 years ago

    Hi Beci!
    I LOVE your work so much! (I bought mobile girl tote and paper mobile the other day – missed you when I picked them up) I really enjoyed looking at your book shelves – even book shelves are cute. It’s nice to know you like Japanese books as well as other beautiful books (I’m Japanese and now I figured out why I love your work so much – so cute and cool) I miss Princess Tina but I’m looking forward to your new range too.

  • SonyaMath 3 years ago

    Being a bibliophile myself, I am glad to see your eclectic collection and note that they are not all single colour spines or colour coded as in many stylists’ photos. ‘Compendium of Me’ is a fantastic title and great motivation for all portfolios. If that is a representation of your world, Beci, what a wonderful and colourful world you live!

  • kathyS 3 years ago

  • Meghan C 3 years ago

    I feel the same way about books! My bookshelves can’t contain my ever-expanding collection. I tell myself I am collecting for the future day when I can have my own library with one of those rolling ladders!

    Thanks for this pretty peek at your books!
