Suicide Girls is a community and that is something that Missy may not be able to capture completely in just one book.

Winner of the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Award in Erotica  . Suicide Girls is a community and that is something that Missy may not be able to capture completely in just one book. In the SG introduction Missy says "If I was going to present images of female beauty, it would be my personal vision of femininity.

MISSY SUICIDE: I don’t consider SuicideGirls to be pornography In 2012 we came out with our book, Hard Girls Soft Light. We sent two girls up and down the West Coast on a book signing tour, and they were just signing at comic book stores.

MISSY SUICIDE: I don’t consider SuicideGirls to be pornography. The girls are just nude, and to me ‘pornography’ has a slightly lascivious tone to it, and I don’t’ think there’s anything lascivious about nudity. I think that the female form has been the most celebrated subject matter in all of art history, and if you go into most art museums you’re going to see as many nude bodies as you ever see on SuicideGirls. In 2012 we came out with our book, Hard Girls Soft Light.

Started in Portland, Oregon, by Missy Suicide and her friends in 2001, the SuicideGirls broke conventional notions of beauty and the pin-up girl ideal as defined by men's and women's magazines and the culture at large. SuicideGirls was born in an era when tattoos were still taboo. Now, when ink is everywhere you look, the SuicideGirls still push the boundaries. The photos in this book celebrate the beautiful, heavily inked ladies with more than the casual butterfly. Our bodies are our canvases, and the SuicideGirls in this book have chosen to adorn every inch of theirs.

Courtesy Suicide Girls. Missy Suicide, co-founder of SuicideGirls. We have a group on SuicideGirls called Suicide Boys, it's been around for probably 10, 12 years now, where members post photos of their members. Business Savvy: Courtesy Suicide Girls. In honor of their lucky 13th anniversary this week - and the release of their fourth book, Geekology - we talked with soft-spoken co-founder Selena Mooney, aka Missy Suicide, about humble beginnings, cultural shifts, and why she's a new kind of feminist. Here are the highlights of what she had to say: Changing How the World Sees Beauty: Courtesy Suicide Girls. The punk rock pin-up cultural phenomenon known as suicidegirls.

Winner of the 2005 Independent Publisher Book Award in Erotica. The punk rock pin-up cultural phenomenon known as suicidegirls.com includes journal entries excerpted from the site and over 200 artful, color photos.

I tried to love this book, believe me, I really tried, but the substance is just not there. First, I have never really visited the site, and just heard of it on an HBO special, so, I cannot compare the book to the online content.

Now, yes, I admit, the binding, quality of the paper and printing (ergo: everything not having to do with content) is fairly good, but let's be real! You wouldn't buy the thing if it was a bunch of ink jet prints on a three ring binder, would you?

The content, that's another story. Let me explain:

(1) The models are attractive young women who are not necessarily the typical Barbie model you find on most nude photography books, that was, perhaps, the biggest plus of the book. But they aren't either the "typical" goth/emo girl out there. Indeed, far from it.
(2) The photography style is very amateurish! Yeah, I am an amateur photographer myself, and maybe I wouldn't do a better job (and would have a harder time to find so many girls who want to pose naked for me), but I am not selling average pin up pictures as top notch counter culture nude photography! Nothing really memorable about the photographic technique.
(3) The girls, the poses and the backgrounds (all in doors) are relatively OK, but not much more than that. It looks like a slumber party of legal aged young ladies, mostly tattooed, who got curious with a camera, took a few thousand pictures during a weekend, and then picked the top 10%. Most of them are average, at most, a few are a bit above average, and for me, just two are memorable! (lower left corner on page 44, Rose's back, being the one I liked the most, curiously enough, a 2'x2' print only!).

Not really erotic, not really artistic, at least on my opinion. Having such a repertoire of beautiful tattooed women, they could have done a lot better job. I, for once, am not impressed. Indeed, I'm probably removing the rest of their books from my wish list!

So. I've never wanted to pay for membership on the SG site, but I've always had an attraction and fascination with the whole punk/goth/indie/alternative type of look. So when this book was released, I jumped on it.

- The photos aren't very artistic. They're simple and straightforward, shot with a standard digital camera.
- It's arranged rather simply, with little or no thought to the placement of the images. (Usually two images side by side per page)
- True, you can probably find a lot of similar images on the internet.
- Some of the girls are absolutely beautiful, but I find some rather unattractive.
- The quality of the pictures is rather poor, since the original intent of SG was purely online. So the change from pixels to print never translates well.
- There's very little about the girls themselves... just short, self-written bio's on some of the girls in the back.
- Let's be honest... you're just buying this for the boobies of cute indie chicks... and that's okay.

After a couple viewings, it doesn't have a lasting effect that the likes of Tony Ward or maybe Richard Kern's work might have. Less art and more taboo. It's an inexpensive book, so if you're into the whole naked chicks with tattoos and piercing, I'd say go for it.

sexy, my husband loved it!

It's exactly what you think it is.

Fun book, enjoyed reading the bios/additional comments.

This book was a very good pictorial of the suicide girls. Its not my favorite book they have ever done, but just because it was so short! I will continue to purchase every book that the suicide girls put out.

Suicide Girls irritate me now. It's way too ridiculously hard to become one, as Ive learned from experience, and the girls who become one are usually conceited or very ugly or both. SG has some really wack standards and basically only the rich girls with the fancy equipment and ugly faces get in. That being said, this book is filled with alot of ugly naked women. Even my husband said so.
Great coffee table book =) Girls are hot.. very tasteful. Not for the prudish folks that have problems w/ nudity.
