Todd Oldham - Joan Jett
Rock-and-roll icon Joan Jett holds a beloved place in the world of music. She started her first band, The Runaways, in 1974 at age fifteen, and has blazed a trail that has inspired and thrilled her fans to this day.
The book chronicles all aspects of her career and passions through images - from forming The Runaways to her years of touring with her band, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Joan Jett features many never-before-seen photos, ephemera, and excerpts from thirty years worth of interviews, carefully curated with Joan herself, covering the multi-decade career.
A thoughtful introduction written by riot grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (whose band, Bikini Kill, collaborated with Jett in the 1990s) brings context to this exciting title. Joan Jett is a revered songwriter, musician, and American icon. In keeping with her pioneering spirit, she went on to be the first woman to start her own independent rock label, Blackheart Records.
This fully-authorised, loving tribute has been conceived and authored by designer Todd Oldham.
