Books With Simi: Kim Kardashian - New Book Selfish Release Today!

Hey Dolls.
Today is the release day of Kim Kardashian's newest book titled Selfish.
It is a 445 page collection of some of Kim's most favorite Selfies, published by Rizzoli.
Photo's collected from over a decade, she mentions these are only a small fraction of the thousands of selfies considered for publication. (perhaps some more will be put into a 2nd Selfish book release?!)
Taken from digital cameras, polaroids, blackberries and smartphones, these photos document a evolution of Kim's selfies.
See her journey as a daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother, as she says this book is a candid tribute to her fans!
I think it's a fun book release, original, personal, and set to inspire many more to create these selfie inspired books.
Nice size, hardcover which is gorgeous.
A good selection of fine quality behind the scenes photos (includes family and friends).
It makes a nice gift to any Kardashian fan for an addition on your bookshelf or coffee table! :)

About This Book

The selfie photography of Kim Kardashian West, 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 West 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.

About the Author

“The first lady of #fame – the 100 Most Influential People” –Time Magazine

"Kim Kardashian already broke the internet. Now she's poised to break the best-seller lists. . . . It's easy to mock - indeed, the title almost does it for you - but this seemingly throw-away collection may end up being just as much a part of pop-art history as when Andy Warhol painted soup cans." -Daily News

"Kim Kardashian is the queen of selfies, and she's planning to make sure everyone knows it in her upcoming book, Selfish." -MTV News

"Now there's a book cover if we've ever seen one! . . . this book is obviously made for her biggest fans. Not to mention it includes previously unseen selfies!" -USA Today

"Kim Kardashian can take a selfie anywhere, and we mean anywhere!" -E! News

"In her new coffee-table book, Selfish, the reality star documents nine years of her life in selfies - some seen by millions, others revealed for the first time." -Harper's Bazaar

"Now you can get between the covers with her— hardcovers, that is. With more than 400 pages of intimate snaps (including bikini selfies, lingerie selfies and, yes, several nude selfies), flipping through her new photo book Selfish, published by art-house giant Rizzoli, feels like scrolling through a fabulously rich and beautiful friend’s well-curated smartphone." -Playboy Magazine

"As they say, you have to love yourself first! After months of anticipation (and just a touch of eye-rolling), Kim Kardashian's selfie-filled coffee table book, aptly entitled Kim Kardashian's Selfish, [has] finally arrive[d]." -US Weekly

"Kim Kardashian has joined the ranks of Giacometti, da Vinci, Lichtenstein, O’Keeffe, and just about every other revered artist of any era: she, too, now has a Rizzoli-published book devoted to her work at the forefront of an artistic movement. Indeed, Rizolli notes that she’s 'widely regarded as a trailblazer of the ‘selfie movement.'” -Flavorwire.com

"Treat your coffee table to a 300-page collection of Kim's best selfies . . . " -People Magazine

 "[Kim K's] the queen of the selfie. And her soon-to-be released hardcover book . . . should be all the evidence she'll need to maintain that throne." -CR Fashion Book

An average Kim K selfie garners upwards of 650,000 likes with her wedding photo receiving 2.5 million likes. With all that in mind, there's no question that Kim's controversial new book, Selfie, is going to fly off the shelves." –V Magazine
