The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic by Jessica Hopper, the Editor in Chief of The Pitchfork Review and a senior editor at Pitchfork

Women Photographers at National Geographic by Cathy Newman
It’s a history of the magazine’s women photographers, and the stuff they had to go through to get their photos published. Several of the photographers I knew (Jodi Cobb for example) others, like Ella Maillart, who sailed in the 1924 Olympics and then travelled the world after, I didn’t know. Plus obviously, the photos are brilliant.
