Gisele Bündchen is getting an art book to cap off her 20-year career as the world's highest-paid model. The book clocks in at 300 photographs on 536 pages with a price tag that's prohibitive for all but the most loyal Gisele fans. According the publisher Taschen's website, the book's printing will be limited to a total of 1,000 numbered copies signed by Gisele Bündchen, and each copy will retail for $700. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian's art photo book Selfish is currently $9.97 on Amazon.
Keep in mind though, that Bündchen is donating all the proceeds of the $700 book to charity. For her Brazilian fans, a standard edition of Gisele will be released simultaneously with the Collector’s Edition in Brazil in Portuguese.
Gisele will be out in November and is available for pre-order now. The book includes images of the model by photographers like David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, and Corinne Day. Irving Penn shot the nude portrait on the cover. Her friends, family, and industry leaders also penned tributes to Gisele for the book, but no word yet if Tom Brady is on that list.
