Leeds Student Newspaper names Rookie among “top fashion books to read now”
Rookie Yearbook One, Tavi Gevinson
Fashion bloggers everywhere remain perplexed as to how little Tavi Gevinson appears to have it all: unique style, charisma, perfect prose. Not content with her globally famed blog, her New York Times profile, her ranking on Forbes’ ‘Under 30’, or her role as Rodarte’s muse, 2012 saw the publication of her very own book. Rookie Yearbook One is an elaborated print edition of her blog, bursting with content, contributors and exciting illustrations. Exploring fashion, culture, art and feminism, Tavi Gevinson has been hailed as “the future of journalism”. With words from the likes of Zooey Deschanel, Paul Rudd, Lena Dunham, Amy Poehler and so on, and each page turn doubling as an artwork, this book is a treat to thumb through.
