Listen up Swifties! 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! 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. Simon & Schuster asked fellow Swifties to be part of the book and fans around the world have entered competitions to choose the book's title, design its cover and become its honorary author! It also includes submissions from the likes of Tavi Gevinson and Chuck Klosterman. This is an oversized, beautifully illustrated scrapbook that tells the story of Swift's first ten years as an artist in intimate detail. Use the hashtag #SwiftFanBook to join the conversation online.
