I Am Not Buying This… Are You??

I was just reading that the rock group, KISS, is coming out with a new book entitled KISS Monster and will apparently break records as the biggest book in rock history.  Even though I am not a huge fan of the rock group and frankly even know many of their songs, the interesting thing to me was the limited amount of copies and price tag.

There will only be 1,000 copies of this special edition and the cost will be $4,299.00. Yes, you heard that right. The cost is almost $4,300.00! I wanted to share a description of the book, "Anyone who has experienced a KISS performance knows the bigger, louder and heavier, the better! The sheer size of the images the book contains means that the level of detail, vibrancy and intimacy is incredible, bringing the KISS experience alive. Some of the close-up photographs are, quite literally, larger than life! This is the closest any fan could ever get to their heroes without an access-all-areas pass."

I am not exactly sure of the strategy of the limited edition book and price tag so I’m hoping you can shed some light.

  • Why the limited edition strategy?
  • I totally understand supply and demand – so with only 1,000 copies they believe they will sell the book at $4,299. Do you believe they will be right?
  • Are you a fan of the ROCK group KISS?
  • If so, would you buy a copy of the KISS Monster Book?
  • Would you spend $4,299 for a large book of your favorite band?

I look forward to reading your comments.
