    Bigger and better with Kiss!

    Kiss have created the world's largest book, KISS MONSTER BOOK, and they will celebrate the book, which stands 3 feet high by 2.5 feet wide and 2 inches thick, with a special appearance at the Viper Room on Tuesday, Aug. 21 from 2 to 4 PM.

    It's not a coffee table book; it's a coffee table.

    The KISS MONSTER BOOK offers a larger-than-life journey through 40-years of KISS with an intimate collection of 127 photographs by world-renowned rock photographers, including rare and never-before-seen images sourced from the band's own archives. The massive book is a collector's goldmine, with just 1,000 copies available and individually signed, dated and numbered by the four members of the current line-up. Printed in high-definition links by one of the world's finest limited-edition and large format printers, each copy has been hand stitched-and-bound in Italy, by the same binder used by The Vatican.

    The Vatican! The Vatican! Amazing. Oh, that and 127 photographs from 40-years of Kisstory. All amazeballs.

    Eleven different covers with matching signature pages have been produced, and anyone buying the book can choose their cover when they place their order. The pictures inside include unseen gems, old 35mm slides, famous moments and brand new pictures that bring the band right up-to-date. Coupled with the sheer size and quality of the images, this book is a photographic monument that chronicles the cultural phenomenon known as KISS. It's an up-close-and-personal view of the most globally-recognized band in rock history, bringing the epic KISS experience alive.

    Frontman Paul Stanley commented, "This book is way beyond my expectations. The photos are incredible at this size. It's not a coffee table book -- it's a coffee table!"

    KISS has worked closely with the publishers, carefully choosing the best and rarest images to illustrate every decade of their glorious history. The photos selected for the KISS MONSTER BOOK capture the absolute essence of being in-and-around a KISS concert, with incredible work by some of the greatest rock photographers of all time, including Richard Aaron, Fin Costello, Bob Gruen, Ross Halfin, Tom Hill, Steve Jennings, Andrew Kent, Barry Levine, Eric McKenna, Evan Mover, Michael Putland, Denis O'Regan, Chip Rock, Al Soluri, Mark Sullivan, Mark Weiss and Neil Zlozower. The result is an explosion of giant photographs showing KISS alive, with a stunning recreation of the KISS live experience that leaves you with the smell of pyrotechnics in your nostrils, the sound of the music in your ears, and a sense of danger in your belly. Many of the close-up photographs are literally the closest any fan could ever get to their rock heroes without an All-Access pass. The KISS MONSTER BOOK is the ultimate rock book experience.
