LONDON (AP) - American glam rockers KISS are unleashing their "Monster" on the UK public.

The band - Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer- was in London on Tuesday to launch its new retrospective book, "KISS Monster," and to hold a news conference.

The limited edition book - which is three feet (1 meter) tall - features unseen photographs from the band's 40-year career.

"A band that is bigger than life deserves a book that's bigger than life. You could call it a coffee table book, but if you put legs on it, it is a coffee table," joked Stanley.

Only 1,000 copies of "KISS Monster" will be on sale and each one will be signed by the band. It will retail at a staggering 2,742 ($4,299).

"It's not a cheap book because it is hand bound, hand put together. It's the Rolls-Royce of books," said Simmons.

"KISS Monster" is now on sale in the U.K.
