Publisher Comments:

The darling of the fashion world and co-host of the music TV show Fuse News shares her inspirations, musings, and her own very personal and eclectic style

With influences that range from the sultry beauty of Jane Birkin to the rocker chic of Mick Jagger, its no wonder that everything worn by Alexa Chung instantly becomes the latest trend. Already a hugely popular television personality and a muse for Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld, Chung is now a co-anchor of the nightly music show Fuse News, covering todays hottest acts and entertainment news. Chungs first book, It, provides her legion of fans with a long-awaited inside look at her fascinating world.

A wholly unique collection of Chungs personal writings, drawings, and photographs, It covers everything from her candid thoughts on life, love, and music to her favorite ensembles and how to decide what to wear in the morning. With Chungs characteristic wit, charm, and refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, this full-color compendium is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, music, and just about everything Alexa Chung.

Synopsis:

A beautifully illustrated ode to self-expression and personal style, featuring more than 225 contributors, edited by three critically acclaimed authors.

Synopsis:

A witty, gracious, and charmingly illustrated anti-consumer manifesto

Like most people, Sarah Lazarovic covets beautiful things. But rather than giving in to her impulse to spend and acquire, Sarah spent a year painting the objects she wanted to buy instead.

Based on a visual essay that was first published on The Hairpin, A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy is a beautiful and witty take on the growing and#147;slow shoppingand#8221; movement. Sarah is a well-known blogger and illustrator, and she writes brilliantly without preaching or guilt-tripping. Whether sheand#8217;s trying to justify the purchase of yet another particleboard IKEA home furnishing, debating the pros and cons of leg warmers or calculating the per-day usage cost of big-ticket items, Sarahand#8217;s poignant musings will resonate with any reader whoand#8217;s ever been susceptible to an impulse buy.
