The selfie photography of Kim Kardashian, featuring many never-before-seen personal images from one of the most recognizable and iconic celebrities in the world. From her early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian has catapulted herself into becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood. Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon. With her curvaceous style, successful reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, DASH clothing store, makeup and perfume lines, she has acquired a massive fan following in the multi-millions. Through social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), Kim connects with her fans on a daily basis, sharing details of her life with her selfie photography. Widely regarded as a trailblazer of the “selfie movement”—a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age—Kim has mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself. For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim’s favorite selfies in one volume—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots—and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star.

In some Multiple Master fonts, designers have used other criteria. One of the most famous Multiple Master fonts around is the ‘porn font’ MoveMeMM, created by Luc(as) de Groot. It gradually changes characters into erotic shapes and is a good example of the flexibility of the Multiple Master technology.
Eighty-six is an exciting new title in the cult minimalism/microism school of story telling. As the genre suggests, Eighty-six does not have a narrative arc, or even a sound track, but this is not what the viewer should focus on. The carefully art directed palette projects a wonderfully compelling atmosphere that draws you in. Regardless of its compact format and (rather short) length, Eighty-six records the crippling doubts and insecurities of a square. Is it orange? Is it red? Or are they just carefully selected shades of magenta and yellow? Do the hexadecimal values of the colors carry additional meaning? With movies this compact, fans have to dig deep for clues. For instance: why is the movie one byte shorter than suggested by the title? The director, like the movie, remains stumm. The editing is quick, with powerful square images racing at the viewer with a hypnotic rhythm. As a remake of the earlier monochrome Spacer.gif, Eighty-six successfully expands the visual vocabulary of modern microist movie making.
Five star. Must see.
