The Michael Jackson Opus will be an extraordinary way to celebrate and remember the life of the King of Pop. Many celebrities including Paula Abdul, and countless others who enjoyed working relationships and friendships with MJ will be featured in the Opus with their written stories on the King of Pop.
Kraken Opus, whose opulent publications focus on major figures and brands in sports and the arts, begins accepting pre-orders today for The Official Michael Jackson Opus at michaeljacksonopus.com, michaeljackson.com and through Ticketmaster. The oversized, 400-page tribute will be driven by photos but also will include essays, illustrations and poetry, at least half of it exclusive — all handbound in leather and enclosed in a silk clamshell case.
According to USAToday, "The $249 book boasts 404 pages of images, more than 80% of them never before seen." Deborah Wald the photo editor of the Opus says: "This is a loving tribute to his legacy and work. We designed this book with his children in mind."
