The Book of Gaga is the name of the highly stylized art table book housed in a custom slipcase documenting Gaga's journey into pop super stardom included in the Super Deluxe Fame Monster Pack of The Fame Monster.

Book of Gaga

Upon the first opening, the book is housed in a black cardboard slipcase wrapped in plastic with a red sticker on it. The back of the slipcase feature the content of the book along with the pressing number out of the 10 000 copies printed. Members of the press received an unnumbered copy.

The book itself when removed from the slipcase is wrapped in a tinted red plastic along with two collectible cardboard puzzles. The first is a picture from the July 15, 2009 photoshoot with Markus Klinko & Indrani [A] and the second from the July 7, 2008 shoot with Gitte Meldgaard [B]. The cover of the Book of Gaga is made in a mirror-like foil with "LADY|GAGA" written on the front.

This first part of the book include an introduction by Lady Gaga with the 2 CDs, 3D glasses and a lock of hair as bookmark.

The first page of the book feature a picture taken on February 24, 2009 by Slam Photography. Inside of it, a special 2 sided all black CD The Fame Monster (Censored, 8 tracks) and a bookmark made from a lock of Lady Gaga's hair from the Candy Warhol wig.

Page 2 feature a previously unreleased picture taken on May 14, 2009 by David LaChapelle, The Fame (2008 US Version, 14 tracks) and 3D Glasses with "Pop" written on it.

I. Manifesto of Little Monsters
There's something heroic about the way my fans operate their cameras. So precisely and intricately, so proudly, and so methodically. Like Kings writing the history of their people. It's their prolific nature that both creates and procures what will later be perceived as the "kingdom." So, the real truth about Lady Gaga fans lies in this sentiment: They are the kings. They are the queens. They write the history of the kingdom, while I am something of a devoted Jester.

It is in the theory of perception that we have established our bond. Or, the lie, I should say, for which we kill. We are nothing without our image. Without our projection. Without the spiritual hologram of who we perceive ourselves to be, or rather to become, in the future.

When you're
lonely,

I'll be lonely too,

And this is the fame.

Lady Gaga
