They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but if you could, then I think we can all assume Kim Kardashian’s new book of selfies, appropriately titled Kim Kardashian Selfish, is going to be absolutely titillating. Or perhaps tit elating would be more accurate?
Here’s the actual cover (click to enlarge):
Kim revealed late last year that she was working on the project, which initially started out as a Valentine’s Day gift idea for her hubby, Kanye West. At the time, Kim had reportedly taken more than 1,200 photos of herself for the collection, and I can only assume that number has probably more than doubled since. The end result is a 352-page hardcover book published by Rizzoli, New York that is scheduled to be released on April 28. Just in time for, um, Mothers’ Day?
Annnnyways, Kim shared the first photo of the book’s cover earlier today (above) and it features Kim and her famous upstairs assets looking as though they are about to pop right off the cover. Kim looks to have just emerged from the shower with wet hair — and I believe she is wearing a white towel?
“So proud to share the cover of my book Selfish, out in May!” Kim excitedly wrote along with the photo on Facebook. “Thank you Rizzoli for making this happen & being the best partner. A big thank you to the Donda team & Kanye for inspiring this idea & helping me share a decade of images in such an intimate & artistic way! Can’t wait for you to all see this book! Xo”
And in case you wanted to know more about the book, here is the description from the publisher:
The selfie photography of Kim Kardashian, featuring many never-before-seen personal images from one of the most recognizable and iconic celebrities in the world. From her early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian has catapulted herself into becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood. Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon. With her curvaceous style, successful reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, DASH clothing store, makeup and perfume lines, she has acquired a massive fan following in the multi-millions. Through social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), Kim connects with her fans on a daily basis, sharing details of her life with her selfie photography. Widely regarded as a trailblazer of the “selfie movement”—a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age—Kim has mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself. For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim’s favorite selfies in one volume—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots—and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star.
The book is remarkably affordable, with a list price of $19.95 and Amazon currently taking preorders at $14.59. I recommend you grab yours now! As for me, I think I’ll just wait for the movie.
