KISS Bring “Monster” to Britain
Gene Simmons and his KISS comrades have always been about spectacle – doing everything “big”. That said it’s no surprise then that the lads have unleashed KISS Monster, onto the United Kingdom. True to form, the limited edition retrospective is three feet tall, and two and a half feet wide (yes, that’s correct), and retails for a paltry ₤2,742 ($4,299 US).

“It’s not a cheap book because it is hand bound, hand put together. It’s the Rolls-Royce of books,” Simmons said.

“A band that is bigger than life deserves a book that’s bigger than life. You could call it a coffee table book, but if you put legs on it, it is a coffee table,” opined Paul Stanley.

Chock-full of a plethora of unseen photographs through the band’s epic 40-year history, only 1000 copies of KISS Monster will be sold. Each hand-bound book is signed by the band, and individually numbered.

If you’re a die-hard KISS fan with cash to burn, visit www.kissmonsterbook.com/ to get your hot, little hands on this tome to the boys from The Big Apple.
