Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West's new book features "2 000 selfies".

The reality TV star has revealed the much-anticipated book, Selfish - which is set for a pre-Christmas release - was the brainchild of husband Kanye West and the 352 pages contain thousands of her self-captured photos.

Kim, 34, explained to the Evening Standard Magazine: "Kanye came up with the concept and the name and everything."

"He introduced me to the book publisher. And I was like, 'This is such a good idea, I can't believe I didn't think of it.' It's 352 pages and multiples on the page, so I turned in probably 2 000 selfies.''

Kim - who married 37-year-old Kanye in May this year - has refuted accusations that the tome is nothing but a vanity project for her, insisting it is a catalogue of her life and a reflection of the modern world.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star added: "I've been taking selfies for a long time - it's like now seen as such a vain thing, but it really started off with me just having a camera around to capture memories. They're selfies taken over a decade."

Kim - who gave birth to daughter North in June 2013 - has also given her top tips on how to take the best selfie possible.

She explained: "Lighting is key. I think a lot of people take a lot of selfies before they actually post one. So, in the book you'll definitely see ... like I posted this one selfie of myself in a white bathing suit, after I had the baby ... it was kind of like from the back in the mirror... and I took about 10 shots to get that one. So I'm probably going to put all ten in there."
