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.

Tyler Conroy has been a Swiftie since Taylor Swift's tour bus almost ran him over in 2008. Born in Conway, Massachusetts, he began taking guitar lessons at age fifteen just so he could learn every song on Fearless. Since then, he has ugly cried at nineteen Swift shows, met her three times, put on an entire Taylor Swift musical, been invited to her NYC loft, and gotten the word fearless in her handwriting tattooed on his left foot. "I am so proud to be the honorary author of this book," he says. "Taylor made being different cool and, for all of us who see ourselves as different, she's given us a reason to stay fearless."
