The life of Michael Jackson can truly be admired when one takes note, that after the star death in 2009, he has managed to sell more albums and memorabilia than ever before. All across the world, the demand for his records and collectibles touched epic proportions, and those lucky owners who managed to get any piece of memorabilia related to the star, wear it as a badge of pride. Catering to this category of Jackson’s fans, Bungalow Publishing have created a limited edition monumental book called ‘Dear Michael’, that shall put on display some of the rarest aspects of ‘King of Pop’s life.
Created by Marisa Garau and Arjan van Woensel, Bungalow Publishing has always worked towards creating special edition products such as this book, which will be a specimen of craftsmanship, other than being an elaborate pictorial display of Michael Jackson’s life. Available in a limited edition series of only 2,000 individually numbered copies, this book has been bound in hand crafted black leather fabric, which processes a fixed pattern of print throughout. The next and perhaps most distinguishable factor, is the portrait of Michael Jackson on the cover, created with 3,000 hand selected Swarovski crystals from the craftsmen in Austria. Created with multiple shaded crystals, it creates a very imposing picture of Michael Jackson to remind readers about the special content of the book.
Detailing has gone down to the finishing of the pages as well. The silky smooth texture and silver coating of the edges have ensured that they never stick to the one another and are easy to turn over under all conditions. Along with the book, there will be a special designed white and wooden finish casing, that will allow the book to erected at your center table as a decorative item, or even put it up for display at a museum. There will also be a special ‘MJ’ badge, which is crafted by the same enterprise which makes the British Royal family’s official badges. Just like the book, these will be also be individual numbered and available in a limited edition series. In terms of content inside, the book will contain high quality photographs and detailed tributes to the ‘King of Pop’ from around the world, including the heartfelt messages, and various gestures of the fans who displayed their sadness in many ways. It will also contain some of Michael’s most famous quotes as well.
As a far as unveiling of the book is concerned, it is stated to happen in selected stores in London, Sanghai, and New York, for 2012. Just attending the unveiling will cost each fan a sum of $7,499 each, but looking at the craze, this might not be as strong a deterrent. However, if you are looking for other such examples of memorabilia related to Michael Jackson, do check out ‘Gotta Have It’ collection, and Michael Jackson furniture auction. Seems like the world would never really get enough of the ‘King of Pop’.
