A German publishing company is commemorating 20 years of the world’s highest-paid supermodel’s career with the November release of a limited edition coffee-table book complete with 300 photos — including some discreetly posed nudes! Each of the 1,000 copies will be signed by Bündchen. According to Taschen’s website, Bündchen will donate her proceeds from the book to charity.
The 11 x 15.4 hard cover book is, according to the publisher, Taschen, “personally curated and designed by Gisele in collaboration with [creative director] Giovanni Bianco.”
In a statement, Taschen describes the book thusly: “From her legendary nude portrait by Irving Penn, chosen as the book’s cover, to iconic shots from such industry luminaries as David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott,and Corinne Day, it is a unique artistic presentation of the most famous Brazilian export together with Pele and Senna, and the highest-earning model in the world,” according to the publisher.
Bündchen recently did an interview with Evening Standard in which she shared some of the thoughts (which, presumably, will be similar to the ones found in the book). They include:
•“I can’t get through a day without seeing my kids. When I’m out of town working I Face Time them five times a day. They are growing so fast and I don’t want to miss a thing.”
•“I would love to be an avatar. To live in such harmony with nature and fly with those creatures would be amazing.”
•“My golden rule of style is to wear whatever is comfortable – often jeans and a T-shirt. I like to keep it simple and jeans will never go out of style.”
•“The biggest lesson I’ve learned in life is to let go of things that I cannot change. I embrace whatever challenges come my way.”
