SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has launched a book of over 300 photographs spanning her 20-year career just months after retiring from the catwalk.

Fan Marcelo Spencer says he arrived at midnight to be first in line for Friday’s debut in Sao Paulo and get his copy of “Gisele” signed by the supermodel, who retired in April.

Spencer says Bundchen treated him “very well” and wrote a simple dedication inside: “To Marcelo, handsome, blond, tall and thin. From your diva, Gisele.”

The Portuguese-language version of “Gisele” sells for either $500 or $925 for the deluxe edition.
