Gorgeous photography and hand-drawn illustrations give behind-the-scenes insight into Canadian footwear designer John Fluevog’s creative process in his recent book FLUEVOG: 50 Years of Unique Soles for Unique Souls. The Vancouver-based designer, who founded his eponymous shoe brand in 1970, is known for creating “unique soles for unique souls,” and his creations have been seen everywhere from the feet of Madonna and Jack White to the runways of high fashion.

Echoing the eclectic style of his brand’s whimsical zine-style catalogues, the book features Fluevog’s own design sketches and handwritten messages, blended with stories, graphics and previously unpublished photographs from the Fluevog archives.
