Pharrell is officially a quintuple threat – he’s a rapper, recording artist, designer, producer and now author. His first foray into the literary world, “Places and Spaces I’ve Been,” is on my list of must-haves at the moment.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I have an undying/unhealthy love for Pharrell and anything he creates. That being said, I’m really excited to head over to my local bookstore – or maybe just Amazon – to pick up my copy of “Places and Spaces I’ve Been,” which chronicles Skateboard P’s music career with N.E.R.D, the Neptunes, his collaborations with mega-stars like Kanye West and Jay Z, as well as his countless contributions to fashion and design.
Basically, it’s an inside look at Pharrell’s world – where he’s been, what he’s done, and where he’s going – from his perspective. Who wouldn’t want to get a better look at the life of one of the coolest people ever?!
Jay Z, Ambra Medda (co-founder and director of Design Miami), Nigo (longtime friend and creator of BAPE), and contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami are contributors to “Places and Spaces I’ve Been.”
According to TheNeptunes.org, Pharrell will be on-hand at a book signing for “Places and Spaces I’ve Been” at BookMarc in LA this Saturday, October 27th and in NYC at Billionaire Boys Club on November 7th from 7PM – 9PM. Other signings are expected to happen in Paris, Tokyo, Miami, and several other cities (please say San Francisco!). Definitely contemplating a quick foray down to LA for the weekend in order to get my copy signed (no, really…).
The book comes in three different colors – blue, pink, teal – and it’s rumored that there are limited edition copies in white. Pick it up at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Billionaire Boys Club and BookMarc for about $32. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this at Urban Outfitters sometime in the near future, too.
What do you think of Pharrell’s new book? Let me know in the comments section.
