Kim Kardashian West Book: 'Selfish' - Cover and Review

The book 'Selfish' has just been released by Kim Kardashian West, and it's set to get the world talking. And that's the whole point.

Published by book giant Rizzoli, New York, it is a mini tome which is fat with 300 colour photographs of Kim K and Ko.

For super fans, it's a dream come true.

It starts with the cute as photo of Kim K in 1984 - her first inadvertent selfie with a crying baby sister Khloe.

And the next pics - the ones waaay back when she was on the global radar, as Paris Hilton's BFF, accompanying the blonde one on her trip to Australia promoting a new beer with the name 'blonde' in it. Kim was second fiddle, but those with a keen eye could see that this shorter than Paris, more buxom than Paris, more striking than Paris exotic looking young woman was about to steal Ms Hilton's thunder. It didn't take long for that to materialise. And materialise - in EVERY sense of the word, it did.

This book is an ode to the very best (and there are MANY) selfies (photos taken by you, usually on a phone camera, of yourself, in case you didn't know) of Kim Kardashian (she also adds the 'West' to her moniker now), from 2006 to date.

Says the book press release:

Personal photography has come a long way from Brownie cameras, Polaroids, LeClics, and digital SLRs; we are now in the age of the selfie, propelled by smart phones with top quality cameras and the occasional selfie stick. Selfies, the self-portraiture of the digital age, allow us to capture ourselves in the moment, in ways that past technology has not, and Kim Kardashian West, having mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of herself, is regarded as a trailblazer of the exploding selfie movement.

KIM KARDASHIAN WEST: SELFISH presents, for the first time in print format, Kim’s best selfies—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots, from informal family photos with husband Kanye West and baby North, to her world travels—providing readers with a behind-the-scenes look into “life with Kim”.

From her beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian West has catapulted herself into being one of the most recognized celebrities in Hollywood, if not the world. With her curvaceous bomb-shell style, successful reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, DASH clothing store, cosmetic and perfume lines, Kim has acquired a massive following in the multi-millions and, like a true contemporary celebrity, connects daily with them through Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Devoted fans are sure to covet this self-curated collection of Kim’s best selfies!
