This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

An illustrated portrait of the life and work of Kim Gordon, one of the great musical icons of the last forty years and a founding member of Sonic Youth, fashion icon, and role model for a generation of women.

Kim Gordon is best known as the bassist, vocalist and founding member of the legendary rock band Sonic Youth, one of the most influential and successful bands to emerge from the post-punk New York scene. Although her artwork is not as well known as the band, Gordon is also taken seriously in the art-world, exhibiting in museums and galleries worldwide.

This illustrated scrapbook is an edgy and evocative portrait of Gordon's life, art and style. Spanning from her childhood surfing in California in the 60's and 70's, to New York's downtown art and music scene in the 80's and 90's where Sonic Youth was born. Depicted through unpublished personal photographs, magazine and newspaper clippings, fashion editorials and advertising campaigns, interspersed with Gordon's song lyrics, art works, private objects and ephemera, theoretical art writings and even a handful of her favourite recipes.
