Frequently snapped by the paparazzi toting Starbucks cups, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are putting a literary spin on their java habit. The duo’s latest project is a coffee table book entitled Influence [cut to tight shot of a bedfuddled Lyndon Johnson], which will be published this fall by Razorbill (a Penguin imprint). Readers, it will be designed by Rodrigo Corral, the designer behind such memorable book jackets as those for A Million Little Pieces by James Frey, The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl, and much of Chuck Palahniuk‘s oeuvre!
According to Penguin’s press release:
Influence introduces readers to respected artists, seasoned designers, and others who have influenced Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen over the past decade. The book will feature influential figures including; Christian Louboutin, Lauren Hutton, Bob Colacello, Terry Richardson, Jack Pierson, and Robert Lee Morris. A coffee table book, Influence includes exclusive photographs of Ashley and Mary-Kate from world renowned photographer Rankin, and a wide variety of other never-before-seen materials and interviews from Mary-Kate and Ashley’s personal collections. This unique book is edited by fashion and arts writer Derek Blasberg and designed by eminent book designer Rodrigo Corral.
Curiously, no mention of including Bob Saget or Dave Coulier, to say nothing of John Stamos.
