Two Gentlemen at Rizzoli

riz11 Here we are at the Rizzoli bookstore having a “conversation”, just like we have every day all day long for the past forty six years. Except this time there were a hundred people listening. Oh, we were talking about the book, Please Do Not Touch, which you yourself can buy and read if you click on the pics, which will take you to Amazon where you can Prime yourself a copy. We ourselves encourage you to do that because otherwise we’ll need to do more public conversations.

Please Do Not Touch the NY Times

kanyeJust in time for the book’s first day of sales, here’s a piece in the New York Times today. We ourself might have gone with a different headline, but I guess it gets attention. There’s nothing like plopping yourself down into the middle of pop culture. The book is nesting out the door. Get yours before it’s gone. You don’t want to be last on your block. Click on the pic for the full Times piece.

Please Do Not Touch, the book

Our about to be immensely popular new book, with the same title as the t-shirt, will be released on April 10th by Rizzoli.  It will probably sell out in one day. Look at what happened to Fire and Fury. Of course, our book is not about Trump. Though it does have some pretty juicy revelations. It’s the story of MOSS, like you never heard it before. And speaking of Trump, did you know he NEVER shopped at MOSS? Unless it was him who broke in that night and stole the bicycle. I wouldn’t put it past him. Anyway, click on the shirt to go to the special Please Do Not Touch website where you can learn everything you need to know, including that you should pre-order from Amazon. It’s better to be safe than sorry, my grandmother always said. She always pre-ordered. And no, you cannot buy that t-shirt. It’s sold out. Let that be a lesson to you.

 

Advance copies out to reviewers

cover22It does finally seem to be happening, the release of our book. Scheduled for April 10, but last week the advance copies arrived. What this means is that a box of books arrived by FedEx ahead of all the others which are on a ship somewhere. Design-obsessed Somali pirates take note. We are wore out handling the thousands of pre-launch demands for interviews and photo sessions. Okay, maybe not thousands. Okay, two. But they were long, okay? It seemed like more. You can click on the book and be whisked over to Amazon where you can preorder and have it delivered to your door rather than have to go out in the fourth or fifth bombogalactic winter storm which are no doubt waiting around the corner.

Rizzoli’s beautiful new store has launch party

IMG_1366It was craziness last night at Broadway and 25th Street, the location of the new Rizzoli store. Okay, okay, maybe the store’s not quite finished but they had a launch party scheduled so launch they did. Thousands of New York book lovers showed up and lined up to get in. Once inside, you saw the excellent and gorgeous Fornasetti wallpaper, had a glass of wine, if you could make it to the bar, and got to hear Diane von Furstenberg and Rizzoli publisher Charles Miers wish you a warm [no air conditioning as yet] welcome. That’s them below. IMG_1363

$85, $52.95 or $559.61 — your choice

GeorgJensen_CoverMurray’s shiny gorgeous Georg Jensen book is available all over the place, and even on Amazon it’s offered at so many price points, it’s dizzying. And very curious. Why would someone who could purchase the book nearly anywhere for its listed price of $85, or on Amazon for $52.95, choose of their own free will to pay $559.61 for THE SAME BOOK. Are there people out there who could possibly think to themselves, My God there must be something REALLY special about that $559.61 version even though they don’t say there is. Why else would they be charging so much? Think I better just snap one right up. Yessirree. Here’s my titanium Amex. Sure don’t want to miss out on this great opportunity.
