Brazilian supermodel-turned-author Gisele Bündchen just became a little bit richer today thanks to some very generous fans. Her newly published $700 coffee table book, Gisele, has sold out so quickly that it didn’t even make it onto bookstore shelves, reports The LA Times.
The book, which had a limited edition print run of 1,000 copies, contains over 300 photos of Bündchen. Gisele is described by the publisher Taschen as “a unique artistic presentation of the most famous Brazilian export together with Pelé and Senna and the highest-earning model in the world” and includes “tributes from Gisele’s closest friends, family, and fashion leaders, who shed light on how and why she has become one of the greatest models of all time.”
Taschen is well known for its extravagant art books, having once published an $18,000, 66-pound book by photographer Helmut Newton, and at another time selling a moon-themed volume to the tune of $90,500.
Although Gisele would look mighty fine on my (very inexpensive) coffee table, I think I’ll be waiting for a more affordable version to be released. Is there a book you’d ever spend $700 on?
