Terry Richardson Inks Lady Gaga Book Deal

A year—OK, ten months—in the life of Lady Gaga. That’s the premise of photographer Terry Richardson‘s forthcoming book on the pop star, who is penning a foreword. Lady Gaga will showcase 350 color and black-and-white photos culled from 100,000 shots taken by Richardson over a ten-month period that began last August at Lollapalooza and culminated in the final show of the Monster Ball tour. Expect behind-the-scenes glimpses of Gaga at the MTV Video Music Awards, a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal rally in Maine, and Nicola Formichetti‘s debut Mugler show, as well as in the recording studio, laying down tracks for Born This Way. According to Publishers Marketplace, the freshly inked deal with Hachette’s Grand Central slates publication of the 300-page book for November 22, and Amazon has wasted no time in making the title available for pre-order. Meanwhile, Taschen will publish a very limited edition of the book to be released in 2012.
