Feted fashion photographer Willy Vanderperre's Instagram pictures are so spectacular, they've been published in book form. 

His ‘spontaneous’ book, released this week to time with New York Fashion Week, is titled 635 - the number of pictures on his feed when the publisher went to print.

It mostly features models he snaps for renowned fashion houses and magazines and stunning sunsets he captures on his travels around the globe.

A collaboration with IDEA Books, the 220-page coffee table tome was produced in just 10 days.

“I thought it was incredibly modern, and so now, a perfect reflection of our time,” Vanderperre told AnOther.

“I found the whole experience very liberating and fun, because there was absolutely no time to scrutinise over the placement of images, or adjust things, and go back and forth to the printers. It was all highly spontaneous. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.”

It seems they do - the £45 book's limited print run sold out immediately and there's now a waiting list.
