Like Naomi Campbell before her, Gisele Bündchen has announced that she is coming out with a Taschen tome devoted to her 20-year modeling career. (Unlike Naomi, she didn’t promote it via a racy Instagram post.) According to a release from the publisher, the book will contain 300-plus photographs spanning her career, by talents like David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Corinne Day, and Irving Penn, who shot the nude portrait that adorns the cover. The supermodel has curated the book, which will also feature “tributes from Gisele’s closest friends, family, and fashion leaders,” who remain unnamed. Unfortunately, your Gisele completism will set you back $700, but there’s a silver lining — each of the 1,000 numbered copies will be signed by Bündchen. It’s also a whopping 536 pages long, so perhaps best to invest in a sturdy coffee table to prop up all of those highly curated tributes.
