An artist design book is a collection of photographs meant to show off a model, photographer, style, or clothing line. Sometimes they are made to compile the looks of other people such as a celebrity, politician or socialite. This is an especially popular term with fashion bloggers.
Artist design books, or ADBs, in their online form, can be described as ”fashion diaries” because bloggers are constantly updating them on a daily or weekly basis.
An artist’s portfolio is an edited collection of their best artwork intended to showcase an artist’s style or method of work.
