Rizzoli New York to publish masterpiece...

...of narcissism...

http://radaronline.com/exclusives/20...-selfish-book/

At least the title (and cover) will fit:

Quote:

Rizzoli New York announced yesterday that they’ll publish a 352-page, $19.95 book solely comprised of the narcissistic reality star’s selfies, to be released in April 2015.

“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,” the publishers revealed on their website. “Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon.”

For those of you who may not have heard of Rizzoli New York (no relation to the detective):

Whatever floats your boat. I would not be shocked if they actually sold quite a few of those.

It's an interesting way to keep a bookstore open: getting into publishing.
And since they know their customers they surely know what sells locally.
They'll probably sell a few million in NYC alone.
Add in Jersey...

Good business...
...as long as the BPHs don't target them for clmpeting with them.

I think Madonna's photo book sold pretty well. I suspect that this is a similar venture.

Madonna's book is *still* selling quite well for Hachette.

Just another sign of the imminent downfall of American society.

Or of the media that focuses on twerking freaks instead of the hundreds of millions of honest hardworking people who keep the country running.

What they *think* sells.
Look to the indies making good money online on youtube, blogs, and (yes) Amazon/Nook/Kobo/Smashwords/etc.... for alternate media selling just fine outside the realm of the freak shows. Newspapers folding left and right, magazines going digital-only and folding anyway, the ever-declining share of the broadcast networks, indie movies, indie musicians...

There's lots of life and money slipping through the grip of big media precisely because they *don't* know the taste of the customers.
