The ‘Notorious RBG’ book cover is just as epic as you’d expect
If you don’t know, now you know: the Notorious RBG (aka Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg) is getting her own biography this fall — and its just-released cover is absolutely amazing.
The much-anticipated biography about everyone’s favorite Justice was co-written by Notorious RBG Tumblr founder (and NYU Law student) Shana Knizhnik and MSNBC’s Irin Carmon — both certifiable experts on Ginsburg. And while the Justice was not directly involved with the making of the book, she’s reportedly a big supporter of the Tumblr and even gave an in-depth interview with Carmon last February.
The cover is the perfect ode to the meme that started it all (and, of course, rap legend Biggie Smalls), and we’re totally in love with it. According to Jezebel, which had the exclusive first look, the “yellow bits” will even be covered in gold foil — which just gives the whole thing an added level of much-needed regality. It’s a badass book cover for a badass lady, and it has us as ready as ever for its October 27 release.
Plus, the book’s blurb is pretty darn rad.
Given all the incredible things that Justice Ginsburg has achieved in her wonderful almost 20 year reign of the Supreme Court, we couldn’t be more excited to get our hands on a copy. It’s guaranteed to be a good read, and you can preorder it now right here.
