Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Combining her love of pin-up photography, music and art with personal ideals of female empowerment nurtured in DIY culture, Missy founded SuicideGirls as a place where a woman can be herself and where her confidence, creativity and uniqueness are what defines her. While it is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Missy found the camera lens of mainstream media a bit myopic for her taste. SuicideGirls began and has grown from a desire to expand mainstream culture's definition of what is beautiful, and to show that it can be realized in a more diverse range of women than those who grace the pages of most fashion magazines and movie posters. What started for Missy as personal expression has now become a revolution.

Raised in Portland, Oregon in what could be described as an eclectic and artistic environment, Missy combines her traditional fine arts training with new media business acumen in the operation of SuicideGirls. In addition, Missy continues to photograph women for the site. Her photography focuses on depicting how each model feels sexiest about themselves in the photos and has inspired a generation of young women to embrace their bodies and showcase their confidence.

Since launching SuicideGirls, Missy has become a voice for the culture on sexuality outside of what mainstream media is reporting. She has been interviewed on issues relating to music, the Internet, pop culture and body image on numerous radio stations and in publications such as the New York Times, Wired, Spin and Elle. Recently featured as one of the top ""12 Sexiest Jobs in Hollywood"" and the ""20 Sexiest Jobs on the Web"", Missy has appeared on HBO, Fox News, the new hit series ""CSI: NY"" on CBS, as well as the two SuicideGirls movies in constant rotation on Showtime. She hosts a weekly SuicideGirls talk radio show on LA's Indie 103.1 and was recently chosen to model as part of peta2's 2008 ""Ink, Not Mink"" celebrity, anti-fur ad campaign.

Format: Hardcover
The first thing to strike you about this book is that it is size. It's huge and very heavy. The whole thing is just very tactile, with it's beautiful thick pages, filled with hundreds and hundreds of images of the Suicide Girls. Courtney Riot's design is subtle, but striking, and the photographed are presented in an artistic way that does not detract from their beauty.

What this book is lacking is the interesting snippits of journals and information that Suicide Girl's first book had. Aside from a brief introduction from Missy, and a description of all SG staff members, the book is lacking any text at all. If you are a subscriber to the SuicideGirls.com site you will realise what a shame this is, as the girls are as intelligent, and interesting as they are attractive.

My recommendation to you is that you are buying this book for a friend, be sure to include a gift subscription from the suicidegirls website, so they can get the full SG experience.

**BOOK IN GENERAL**
I was interested to see what the Suicide Girls mystique was all about so I purchased this book. For a little over an 11"x11" sized book at almost 400 pages and just over $20.00 this is a great value. The pictures come as full page, double pages, and when cropped, the pictures are still large enough to enjoy the detail. Cropping is usually done in a very non-intrusive way. You usually don't notice. The book is sectioned off (Chapters) geographically. The first five sections of ten are U.S. After that it's sectioned into other countries.

**CRITIQUE**
The book claims that it is beauty redefined. This claim falls far short of the mark. The photography is a sub-genre of glam/erotic photography. Its focus is girls with tattoos, colored hair, piercings, and unusual haircuts. The girls are most often in glam poses. If you said that it's slightly alternative playboy style photography, then it might not appeal in the same way. My hope was that it would show women in a different light, free of the conformity to established norms and mind numbing repetitiveness so often encountered with glam/erotic photography. I was disappointed.

The book only gives only a token offering of anything other than slender white women with medium to large breasts. There are very few Asian and Black women. There are a few women that in the modeling business would be considered plus size, but not large by society. Again, this is beauty repackaged to look alternative, claimed to be redefined, but in reality adheres to conformist societal guidelines of beauty. I wouldn't fault a picture book for displaying naked women, but its tag line is Beauty Redefined.

Do You want a massive (6.5lbs) book that's full of amazing women? Since you're already on this page, I ask that assuming that you want to see women who are beautiful, sexy, and like nothing you will ever see in the pages of Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler. This book is 7 years worth of eye candy from a site that changed the face of web erotica remarkably and permanently, and did indeed redefine beauty in that genre. It's only a matter of time before "Suicidegirl" is a word in the dictionary.

Someone asked me when this book came out "How can they say 'Redefining Beauty' when all of the girls in the book are attractive?"

uhm... precisely.

If you are an SG member you know what to expect. Lots of really awesome girls showing a different side to the world of "beauty" -- this is a good book to explore the SG gals. However I feel like it is a bit dated in that the "hard girls soft light" book that came out more recently is a bit "better" .... but still, worth the price of admission for certain --- but the new book only gets better!

Mature rating for sure. Don't share with minor. Has the photographs from online collection of SuicideGirls. At least one of your favorite girl's photo will be in there. I like many of them. You might enjoy getting the membership online or keep this as an offline alternative for your online album access.

Beautiful and bright HD photos.
This is Modern Art. The tattoos on these beauties are stunning.
My ex came over and wasn't very happy to see this sitting on my coffee table and just called it "porn" but
my sister-in-law came over also and wasn't even deterred by the nudity because the tattoo work is just that cool :)

If you have a problem with nudity then maybe don't order this however not all models are featured naked.

Ordered this book from Amazon because Suicide Girls wanted waaaay too much for it. 20 bucks is quite a steal for this massive hardcover volume. The pages are huge, thick heavy weight paper, and full color. The only thing lacking was the complete absence of text past the introduction. With nearly 400 pages my neck and eyes grew sore and eventually I had to set the book down. The book is mostly thin white girls in little to no clothes (of an emo/goth/punk nature mostly). This includes tons of tattoos, hair in unusual styles & color, body piercings, etc... Basically playboy but cooler (ergo no hardcore sex pics like in hustler or anything). In all well worth the 20 I paid, but I would have shelled out a few more if there had been text to accompany some of the pics. Even quotes from personalities past and present like SG Facebook uses when showing their daily pictorial teaser photo would have earned that extra star. Still a worthy buy for your bookcase.
