George Yabu’s Book List

Jetting between our New York and Toronto offices on a weekly basis, and various project sites around the world (literally), reading is an obvious, but very much beloved pastime. I always like to cover news stories both domestic and internationally based. And I love a variety of books—as long as within the first several pages, the book inspires me, provokes thought, engages my curiosity, and visually delights me. I often take something interesting and new away from each of them, whether a new way of looking at things, or an anecdote to apply to life. This selection is a cross section of my literary interests.

Herb Ritts

A twin boxed set of the most iconic work of the Los Angeles-based photographer Herb Ritts who passed away in the 1990s. His very influential work meshed fashion and music through videos—he directed supermodel Helena Christensen with Chris Isaak for the video of Isaak’s song “Wicked Game.” This fabulous book of Ritts’s work is a collection of glamorous pop-culture figures of the 20th century.
