ABOUT NASTY GALAXY
From Sophia Amoruso, the New York Times-bestselling author of #GIRLBOSS, a lushly illustrated compilation of the style influences that she relies on most for her company, NastyGal, and for her own personal style, with a foreword by Courtney Love. Warning: this is not a style book. It’s not about how to mix prints—it’s about how to leave yours on everything you touch.
A highly graphic and visual book filled with illustrations, photos and short essays that embody the collective spirit of the Nasty Gal brand, Sophia’s own personal brand, and girlbosses everywhere, and celebrates its roots in vintage clothing, punk attitude, fringe characters, and don’t-give-a-fuck thought leadership. NASTY GALAXY will be part scrapbook, part inspo-journey, with moments of frivolity scattered throughout, that will be both tactical and entertaining, envelope-pushing and conventional, surprising and refreshingly straightforward.
Sophia’s newest life bible for young women will approach style, music, philosophy, and advice in the same way #GIRLBOSS approached business—unconventionally, by turning the traditional coffee table book on its head. When Amoruso set out to write #GIRLBOSS, she wanted girls to see it as their “life bible” and with her new book, she hopes to give them a more visual version of what that life can look like. Oversized, illustrated, and in four-color, this will be the coolest must-have gift book for any season or occasion.
