Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, authors

Ashley Olsen just told WWD yesterday that Mary-Kate was focusing on her acting while Ashley worked full time on their The Row range, but it seems the sisters are working on something else.

A fashion coffee table book.

Set to be called, Influence, the book will include exclusive photographs of the sisters taken by world renowned photographer Rankin “and a wide variety of other never-before-seen materials and interviews from Mary-Kate and Ashley’s personal collections,” according to a statement issued by the book’s publisher, Penguin.

“Mary-Kate and I have filled ‘Influence’ with the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know – the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation,” said Ashley.

“Ashley and I interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others,”added Mary-Kate.

The creative people the girls have written about includes the likes of Christian Louboutin, Lauren Hutton, Bob Colacello, Terry Richardson and Jack Pierson.

Looking forward to it? Influence is set to be released this Autumn.

— How do the girls find time between designing for The Row and Elizabeth & James, pursuing acting and other interests, then fronting advertising campaigns (like the Badgley Mishka one above) and attending many functions? Assistants and helpers I guess…
