Rookie Editor and World’s Coolest Teen Tavi Gevinson announced earlier this week in an editor’s letter on the site that Rookie’s first-ever print edition will be available this September. Be still, our hearts.
It’s called Rookie Yearbook One (which gives us hope that there will be others!), and will include Rookie content from the past school year as well as never-before-seen stuff — 296 pages of it, to be exact. Preemptively dismissing any concerns we may have had about the book just being a regurgitation of free online content, Tavi said of the book:
“It is not, however, a lame website-to-paper copy-and-paste situation. … I believe in the power of writing and art that you can hold in your hands, and I promise that looking at all this stuff in print is a different experience from reading it online.”
The Yearbook will be available for $29.95 on Rookie, online, and in bookstores. We’re not exactly in the book’s target age group, but we’ll definitely be reading it. Will you?
