Kim Kardashian producing 352-page selfie photo book

From her humble beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, she is now one of the most recognisable celebrities in Hollywood.

So begins the introduction on a publisher's website promoting reality TV star Kim Kardashian's book which will be released on April 7 next year.

While most celebrities are content to use Instagram and Twitter to connect with their fans, Kardashian has found a way to make money from her selfies.

Her new book, Selfish, is a mammoth 352-page compilation of the narcissistic star's self-portraits and shots of her by her assistant or friends.


In a seemingly sincere introduction, the publisher Rizzoli New York's stated on its website: "For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim's favourite selfies in one volume - from her favourite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots.

"Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon."

The 33-year-old is infamous for snapping racy photos of herself.

Last October, she showed off her famous booty on Instagram four months after giving birth to daughter North and she flaunted her curves in a photo with model pal Blac Chyna to more than 17 million followers in January, reported celebrity website Radar Online.

Her family is not always supportive of her personal photography habit.

As the vain star snapped pictures of herself during a recent Thailand holiday, her sister Khloe, 30, expressed disgust at her sister's selfishness.

Kardashian later called her a "miserable person" in the fight that was shown on their reality TV series Keeping up with the Kardashians.
