We know this is the coolest book ever because it’s been put together by Bay Garnett and Kira Joliffe, the team behind Cheap Date, that irreverently brill cult magazine of the late 90s and early 2000s. Plus, Bay is sister to A Little Bird editor Daisy. Want more proof? Honestly, family loyalty aside (never!), Fanpages, is just brilliant and unlike any other book out there. It is a collection of cut-and-pritt-sticked-pasted collages—visual love letters really—by interesting and cool folk in fashion, music, theatre, film and so on, about something they love a lot.

There is cover girl Chloe Sevigny’s page on denim (as worn by the pin-up stars she had on her bedroom wall when she was a teenager), Stella Tennant on whippets, and Karen Elson on Stevie Nick’s fringing (yes, it gets specific). The Belarus Free Theatre have a double page on freedom fighting, and Bella Freud’s page is on her love for uniforms. Other contributors include Nick Knight, Louis Theroux, Rita Ora, Katie Grand, @unskilledworker, Alexa Chung, Joe McKenna, Suki Waterhouse, and subjects range from Prince to Paris Hilton and include pleats, veils, Kate Bush, Dracula, JFK, pyjamas, and Azzedine Alaia. It’s so going to be the cult book of the year, and it’s being printed as a limited edition of 1000, so you need to get your hands on a copy now. Plus, the T-Shirt is fab beyond.


Buy it at Dover Street Market, Bookmarc or online.
