UNTITLED TAYLOR SWIFT PROJECT
October 2016 will mark the ten-year anniversary of Taylor Swift’s first record and the first decade of her career. To celebrate the occasion, Swift’s fans, in collaboration with Simon & Schuster, are teaming up to produce and publish the first major book about the artist New York magazine has declared “the biggest pop star in the world”—an oversized, beautifully illustrated scrapbook that tells the story of Swift’s first ten years as an artist in intimate detail.
Ten years ago, an unknown sixteen-year-old released a self-titled debut country album. A decade later, Taylor Swift has reached record-breaking, chart-topping heights. She’s been hailed for her songwriting talent, crossed effortlessly from country to pop, and established herself as a musician who can surprise, delight, and inspire, all while connecting with her fans in a way that only Taylor can.
Amazingly, after all these years, there is still no great, comprehensive book about Swift for her fans. This book will change that by collecting the best writing and images that have been produced about Taylor over the past decade in one gorgeous volume. From pre-fame interviews in local newspapers to profiles in The New Yorker; from album reviews by Robert Christgau and Sasha Frere-Jones to essays by Ann Powers, Tavi Gevinson, and Maggie Shipstead; from the first press release for Taylor Swift to Q&As with Chuck Klosterman and humorous analysis from McSweeney’s and The Hairpin, this will be the vital collection of all things Taylor.
A cycle of poetry about Taylor as well as five original crossword puzzles, one for each album, will be included in the book. There will be hundreds of photos and illustrations.
This is truly a book for fans and by fans around the globe.
