Alexa Chung Reveals All About Her First Book

Alexa Chung has revealed more details about her debut book, which is set for release later this year.

While we clear a space on our shelves for the first literary offering from the model and TV presenter, Alexa is finalising the details and getting creative with pictures and sketches.  

She tells Vogue.com: “It’s good – it’s really fun! I had a meeting with them [Penguin Books] this morning actually. It was a struggle before as I’m so visual  – that’s how I learn and imagine things. So when I was sending writing to them it was hard as I couldn’t envisage it at all.

“But then they sent me the proofs of how it will be laid out and we’re deciding where to put images and stuff. I literally have cut-outs of pictures I’ve taken and I get to be like: ‘That one goes there’. It’s one of my favourite things to do.” 

It was initially thought that Alexa was publishing a scrapbook, while some reports claimed she was writing an autobiography. But the model-turned-TV presenter said: “It’s because I didn’t know what I was doing! That’s the problem when people release it to press before you’ve written a word. 

“I’m writing, I’m drawing and I’m taking photographs. It’s definitely not an autobiography, but it’s me writing so in a way it probably will have that element.

“Drawing is probably the main, number one thing I can do – that I’m best at. It makes sense, if I can get dressed well then that’s what I’m good at: visuals. Putting things next to things.”

We can’t wait to see this! Alexa’s made us wanted to get reacquainted with our Pritt Stick… RM
