Who would pay to see page after page with photos of you? A selfie book is destined for failure; unless you are Kim Kardashian, because in that case, anything you touch is destined to turn to gold.
After conquering the world of modelling, fashion designing and reality TV, the curvy Kardashian is set to conquer the world of publishing. The book, which will be just her selfies covering 325 pages is being published by Rizzoli New York.
Kardashian is currently one of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood and has become a style icon for many fans across the world. "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," the publisher writes.
Unlike many popular stars, Kardashian also makes it a point to connect with her fans on a daily basis via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. "This book presents some of Kim's favorite selfies in one volume — from her favorite throwback images to the current ultra-sexy glam shots — and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star," the publisher adds.
The $19.95 book in hardcover, very aptly titled "Selfish", will hit the stores on April 2015 and will feature some "never-before-seen personal images" of the reality star, who is most famous for being famous.
Selfies have become so popular that the term has been incorporated into dictionaries and who else to author the first ever 'selfie book', than the trailblazer of the art form? Kardashian has almost 2,000 photos in her Instagram account and over 17,444,191 followers.
Some of her most popular selfies include a recent one of her and husband Kanye West kissing in an elevator, which has received over 1.02 million likes.
Another one of her with West sleeping in the background titled, "sice chicks be like.." has received over 1.2 million likes.
The idea for "Selfish" stemmed from a Valentine's gift she made for Kanye, the actress revealed to her family while vacationing in Thailand. Kardashian was at a loss as to what to get Kanye for Valentine's Day and she thought, "All guys love it when a girl sends them sexy pics," she told her stepbrother Brody, stepfather Bruce and stepsister Kylie during an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians".
"I had Stephanie (her assistant) get a Polaroid and we were taking photos around the entire house ... making this cool book and it ended up turning out so cool we came up with this idea to do a selfie book so I'm going to make some super racy. I mean, every girl takes like full like pictures of their a** in the mirror," Kardashian further elaborated.
Hearing this, stepfather Bruce jenener asked son Brody, "When was the last time you took a picture of your a**, Brody?"
"This morning," joked the actor befor asking the actress if these pictures are meant just for Kanye, she replied, "Yeah, but I might share some of them. Some of them!"
