Anthony Bourdain ‘keepsake’ book for daughter will be released
A book created for Anthony Bourdain’s daughter will now be available to all.
According to People, CNN created the “keepsake” for the “Parts Unknown” host’s 11-year-old daughter Ariane after he took his own life in 2018.
The book, “Anthony Bourdain Remembered,” is filled with photos, memories and quotes from his famous friends, including Barack Obama and José Andrés.
It’s unclear how the celebrity chef’s estate came to agree to have the work published.
“Anthony Bourdain’s passing was a huge loss to us all and there isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t miss his singular presence,” said Daniel Halpern, the president and publisher of Ecco. “‘Anthony Bourdain Remembered’ reminds me of the joy that he brought to everyone who knew him or watched him on-air as he moved in his particular way around the globe. It is the perfect memento for those of us who, through his shows, came to know the others who inhabit our planet – and an homage to the world’s most beloved traveler.”
Many of the images in the book were captured by Bourdain’s own photographer David Scott Hollaway, who traveled with the star all over the globe.
“I saw the whole world thanks to him,” Holloway said. “Tony took me along for the ride.”
Bourdain died at 61 in June by suicide at a hotel in France while away shooting his CNN show “Parts Unknown.”
In the months before his passing, Bourdain reflected on death saying, “I’m going to pretty much die in the saddle.”
“Anthony Bourdain Remembered” will be released May 28 – a week before the one-year anniversary of his death.
