Tavi Gevinson's 'Rookie: Yearbook One' Book Will Be Out This September

It will be "SUPER GOOD-LOOKING AND SPECIAL."

Last month, Tavi Gevinson (who contributed to Oyster #99 alongside bestfriend Petra Collins) told the Observer that she's been working on a print edition of Rookie. In her most recent Editor's letter she revealed more details about the project. The debut issue will be called Rookie: Yearbook One and will feature the best content from the 'school year' (cute!) spanning September 2011 to May 2012.

Tavi assures us that it's not going to be "a lame website-to-paper copy-and-paste situation" and that it will be "SUPER GOOD-LOOKING AND SPECIAL". The book will be full of Sonja Ahler's collages, Tavi's doodles and extras like a Meadham Kirchoff paper crown and a disc of previously unpublished contributions.

"I have a very soft spot in my heart for print magazines... If any of the articles or photo spreads from Rookie in our first nine months meant something to you, it might be kind of nice to have it in a 296-page book that you can always go back to and, I don't know, maybe even hug or feed little cookies to or something," she writes.

It'll be available to purchase this September online, in big bookstores and "a few 'finer' bookstores, like the kind where they sell zines and vegan things." Tavi, we love you.

UPDATE: You can preorder it now on Amazon!
