Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha has debuted a beautiful new 2000-page book of 360-degree photographs in partnership with photographer Steven Sebring

Soon after Kim Kardashian announced that she is publishing a book of her infamous selfies, Coco Rocha has upped the ante and released a beautiful art tome spread over 2000-pages. 

Titled Study of Pose, the new book is a collaboration with New York photographer Steven Sebring and shows Rocha in a plethora of poses – featuring everything from Grace Jones and Jessica Rabbit's iconic looks to her husband's suggestion of 'old man'.

The book celebrates the supermodel who is known as the "queen of pose" and was lensed in 360-degrees by 100 cameras over three-days back in 2012 – a year after the video of her doing 50 poses in 30 seconds went viral.

Study of Pose will be released later this month, and features a foreword by Jean Paul Gaultier. Photographer Sebring, built the 100-camera rig himself, and first conceived the project in 1990 but had difficulty finding the right person to star: "I thought, 'Is it Kate Moss? What are her poses like? Is it Gisele? I don't know," he said in an interview last week.

Rocha became the perfect candidate. The model explained how the project was incredibly challenging at times for an essay within the new book: “At times I felt I had nothing left to give, and it was then that Steven or my husband James would give me new inspiration – ‘Grace Jones,’ ‘an old man,’ ‘Jessica Rabbit’ – and I would find an entirely new arsenal of moves."

“What was great about the book is that we didn’t Photoshop," Rocha says. "We made sure if there was a weird crease in my side, or an awkward facial expression, we left it alone."
