Legendary rock band KISS took part in a press conference earlier today (Tuesday, July 3) in London, England to launch its new retrospective book, “KISS Monster”. Video footage of the event can be seen below.
The limited-edition book — which stands at three feet tall and two and half feet wide — is a retrospective featuring all the different eras of KISS in makeup, starting in the early years and continuing on to present day.
“A band that is bigger than life deserves a book that’s bigger than life,” stated KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley. “You could call it a coffee table book, but if you put legs on it, it is a coffee table.”
Only 1,000 copies of “KISS Monster” are being made available, priced at $4,250 from KissMonsterBook.com.
“It’s not a cheap book because it is hand bound, handput together. It’s the Rolls-Royce of books,” said KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons.
Every signature page is signed by KISS members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. The signature page has a personal message from KISS to their fans.
According to a press release, “KISS Monster” book is “page after page of glorious, unseen, giant photographs, stunningly reproduced and hand-bound into the largest rock book ever published. Prepare for a larger-than-life journey through 40 years of KISS, the greatest rock band in history! The latest photographic reproduction techniques and high density printing has enabled us to faithfully reproduce the ultimate KISS experience for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. This book is like nothing you have ever experienced!”
