In news that has made every aspiring novelist and book author of every kind weep with derision, Kim Kardashian will release a book of selfies, called Selfish, on April 28th, 2015.
Selfish will be published by respected art book publisher Rizzoli, and a spokesperson had this to say about the release:
"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 news broke when Kim Kardashian shared the cover on Twitter because of course she did.
