Kim Kardashian Hailed As ‘Marilyn Monroe’ And ‘American Icon’ In New ‘Selfie’ Book

Kim Kardashian has been called many things over the years but her critics will no doubt turn their noses up to learn that she has been compared to iconic siren Marilyn Monroe and praised as an “American icon” by the book publishers who are handling her latest release, the book of selfies.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will be hitting the shelves next year with her photo-based book, Selfish, which will feature, as you guessed, hundreds upon hundreds of beautifully shot images of the beautiful entrepreneur whether a selfie or a snap taken in her younger days and “early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist.” Publishing house Rizzoli are pretty excited about the release and have unveiled some details about the project and have promised the coffee book will feature: “some of Kim’s favourite selfies in one volume—from her favourite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots.”

In the official book description, the publishers state: “Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon. 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 actual description which buyers will find in the book, reads: “A new mum to her daughter, North, and happily married to the rapper Kanye West, Kim Kardashian is on top of the world, and this collection of hand-picked images from her personal archive is a tribute to her fans who have supported her through her very highly publicised journey.”

It’ll be interesting to see which photos have actually made the final cut considering Kim, 34, famously took a jaw-dropping 1,200 photos during the family’s holiday in Thailand earlier this year. Selfish will be hitting stores on April 28, 2015. Will you be buying?
