The Sartorialist II Arrives in September 2012!

The other day I announced on Twitter the forthcoming release of my second book, The Sartorialist II, which will be available in September 2012.


I’m excited to work on another book, especially since the process and final result of the first one was so rewarding. The book signings were exhausting, but they were also a great opportunity to meet so many of my readers. I look forward to doing the whole thing all over again and making it even better this time!


With a long project like this, I think Twitter will be a great way to keep you guys updated so you can follow the process of creating a book, from the issues faced to the rewarding results.


I’m also working on a way for you to potentially contribute to the final result of The Sartorialist II, right now we’re just trying to figure out exactly what that process will be. Again, thank you for making the first book such a success, I can’t wait to complete the next.


Oh, P.S.– One of the things that I’ve been working on over the past several months has been saving some of my favorite images, instead of posting on the blog, as exclusives for the next book.  Since I’m addicted to sharing the best of what I find with you, it’s really killing me to save these images instead of posting them on the blog, but I think it will make the book that much stronger!

    I’m definitely looking forward to it! This reminds me, I need to make a haircut appointment. The salon I go to has a copy of Sartorialist I in the waiting area and I always browse your lovely photos when I’m there.

    Hi Scott (and Garance!)
    I just wanted you to know that as a High School Art teacher, I love sharing and turning my students onto your site. You have inspired a lot of kids with your photography!
    Keep it going and I can’t wait to see the next book!

  38. Nini Piccola

    February 8, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Fantastic! Will do a book on vintage photos???!!! Or include some of them in the new Sartorialist II edition?

    Will there be a book signing in Chicago?

  43. viejecita

    February 8, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    Can’t wait for september.
    I hope you will come again to Las Rozas Village in Madrid, and my daughter and I will have the chance to have you sign the books , like you did with the first one.
    And if this time Garance had new drawings and things to sign too, that would be even better.

    Great news!!! I can’t wait to see it!!!

    I hope to be able to get it signed as the previous one.

    It really makes sense to save the best pictures, though it’s a pity for my pc photo folder where I look into when I need inspiration ;)

  50. Laura

    February 8, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    I love how you have saved some of your favourite images for your second book. Fantastic idea! I cannot wait for its release!

    The fact you’ve been holding out is good to know. I was beginning to think your blog was getting worse! Be careful holding out, you may lose some fans that aren’t going to be buying your book!

    CONGRATULATIONS MR. SCHUMAN! That’s some great news indeed. Will you include any images from that trip to Dublin perhaps? :) Your work is such an inspiration! See you in London next week!

    Unseen, captivating photos will be what sells the book-

    I am a Textiles teacher in a small country town in Australia. Our students are not allowed to access blogs at school, but your site is so fantastic that the school has unblocked it so our students can access it and be inspired by your work. We loved your first book and eagerly await this next book. It is great for my students to see what people are wearing in the “big wide world”, outside Kempsey. Keep up the fantastic work!!

    February 9, 2012 at 10:16 am

    maybe your book could include a multimedia element that keeps it alive and changing? an app for ipad or phone that you purchase with the book? or each place you do an event/signing, there’s a link for locals to post photos or a way to get their own street style shot?

  77. manoj

    February 9, 2012 at 10:29 am

    it will make the book that much more desirable!

    Uau… I’m super excited, you wouldn’t believe the amount of copies I’ve already bought for me, and my friends.. It’s my go to gift! In fact I have a couple right here ready for someone’s birthday or a dinner party!…
    Cheers and keep that amazing and inspiring work coming!

    I’m relatively new to The Sartorialist, but admit I’m hooked. If the photos you’re holding back are as beautiful as the ones you post, we’re all in for a treat! Thanks for your wonderful work. Can’t wait for the book!

    Hey Scott… truly enjoyed the first one and it was a pleasure (although very very brief) meeting you in LA for the booksigning. You can be assured that I will be there to pick up the next one and hope another signing in LA is in your plans. Thanks!

    Hi Scott,

    This is my first message to you. I’am following you since your launch. You are inspiring me both artistically and as a business model. What you manage to do by embracing your passion for fashion and making a living out of it is amazing considering that you do no compromise. Good luck.

    LOL! Hang in there! We can’t wait to see them as well. When I bought your first book not long ago at Barnes and Noble it was like unwrapping a bunch of really fun little Christmas presents. I love your work. I love looking back at it especially well.

    July 10, 2012 at 7:26 am

    Oh my God, I can’t believe you’ve been holding back your strongest images!! That would kill me. I find it so hard to keep an image back for even a day :) SO amped to get your new book. Would be awesome if you came to Cape Town for some photos and did a book signing. Wallace.

    January 29, 2013 at 10:28 am

    My sister attended your Closer opening and got me a signed copy of your book for Christmas. She said it killed her to wait to give it to me and rightfully so! It was the best christmas present that I got!!! I am a hairstylist and I keep both of your books on my station. All of my clients say that your books are the most classy and interesting form of entertainment. Thank you for providing such a wonderful luxury! You are a mighty inspiration and I strive to be a success as you are!
