The final countdown is on for the publication of the long-awaited, unauthorized mega-book:
ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA 20
by Matthew Rettenmund
Madonna from A to Z, from birth to “Bitch I'm Madonna.” Every aspect of Madonna's life and career is covered with respect, love, humor ... and the occasional spanky. At times, you will feel like this book contains more info on Madonna than the Internet does, and there are definitely things in here that Madonna has forgotten about herself!
The book includes never-before-seen photos, images of rare collectibles, classic portraits and red-carpet poses, original interviews with people who've worked with Madonna + over 80 one-word Madonna descriptions contributed by stars such as Carol Burnett, Liza Minnelli, Andy Cohen, Olivia Newton-John and many more!
As much of a visual treat as it is, the book is chiefly a serious (and seriously funny) assessment of all things Madonna. As such, it contains over 420,000 words on the woman who kindly requests that you not hang your shit on her, thanks.
Full-color, approximately 600 pages, quality paperback.

Limited Edition: 500 copies only. 86 copies are left for sale as of today. Unique cover + unique 16-page photo feature + signed/numbered bookplate. Buy now until they're gone. Books will be shipped once printed, hopefully in the month of August*, with book plates to follow, just as Madonna is blowing out 57 candles and preparing to blow us away with her Rebel Heart Tour.
UPDATED INFO FOR TRANSPARENCY: After examining my Kickstarter, I have verified 289 copies of the Limited Edition sold. 100 more were sold last night. I am reserving 25 for myself and for contributors to whom I am contractually bound to supply a copy/reviewers/Madonna's team. I purchased 1 myself to test my Paypal button, so that 1 goes back into the pool. That leaves 87 as of Monday, July 20, 2015. Good luck! This is the last time the Limited Edition version will be sold until someone puts theirs on eBay.
Regular Edition: Goes on sale at Amazon very soon—hopefully in August.
BUY NOW VIA PAYPAL. Be sure you use the drop-down to select US/Canada if you're in the US or Canada, and Non-US/Canada if you are not. All prices and sales are final. THANK YOU!
*PURCHASING THIS BOOK NOW IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT IT WILL SHIP AND/OR BE RECEIVED IN THE MONTH OF AUGUST. SHIPPING IS SUBJECT TO FLUCTUATIONS IN THE FINAL EDITING AND PRINTING PROCESS.
