From the Bayswater to the Alexa, luxury British brand Mulberry have become known for creating the most covetable handbags. Now, to celebrate their 40th birthday, they've brought out a coffee table book.

Described as a “labour of love” by the label's Creative Director, Emma Hill, Mulberry: The Book is not a dry account of the brand's history, but more an inside look at the magical world of Mulberry, illustrated by 480 pages of glossy, behind-the-scenes photographs from the last three years. Shot by renowned photographer Venetia Dearden, the book captures everything from their iconic bags being lovingly made at the label's factory in Somerset to candid pictures of models backstage during London Fashion Week.

A must for fashion lovers (or anyone who simply enjoys truly beautiful imagery), Mulberry: The Book makes a stylish addition to any coffee table. Stylist were lucky enough to take a first look at the tome, and we've selected our favourite photographs and images from it to share with you below...
