A book celebrating the decade-long career of Taylor Swift called Taylor Swift: This Is Our Song now has a cover, EW revealed on Wednesday morning. The book — dubbed the #SwiftFanBook — will be will be released on October 24, 2016 to mark the 10 year anniversary of Taylor Swift's first record. 

The book, which will have a scrapbook-like feel, is a collaboration between publisher Simon & Schuster and Swift's fans; it is not being created with the endorsement or authorization of Taylor Swift herself. 

From the publisher: 

Amazingly, after all these years, there is still no great, comprehensive book about Swift for her fans. This book will change that by collecting the best writing and images that have been produced about Taylor over the past decade in one gorgeous volume.

The book's will include profiles on Swift from The New Yorker, Q&As between the musician and author Chuck Klosterman, and analysis on her resounding influence from sites like The Hairpin. 

Fans played a huge role in the creation of the book. The book's title, author, and cover were chosen in contests. A fan named Tenay Barker won the contest to name the book, and she chose Taylor Swift: This Is Our Song because she wanted to "express the way that Taylor and her fans have grown as one over the course of her incredible journey." Another fan named Tyler Conroy was named winner of the "honorary author contest"; his name will appear on the cover, and he will also promote the book in the coming months.

The cover was created by a fan named Shanna Canarini. See the design below:
