Betcha They Still Won’t Host His Book Party, Though

rogues-gallery-cover.jpgCast your memory back to late spring, when Michael Gross and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art had a misunderstanding over photo rights, which ended on an optimistic note when the Met told GalleyCat Gross wasn’t being blackballed and could use any picture from the Met’s archives he was willing to pay for to illustrate the cover of Rogue’s Gallery, his highly unauthorized history of the museum.

Well, Doubleday‘s spring 2009 catalogs are making the rounds, and as you can see by the accompanying illustration, it looks like Gross and his designers were able to find a photograph that worked for them. The book, which “looks at the museum’s rich social history and exposes the secrets behind the upper class’s cultural and philanthropic ambitions,” is scheduled for publication by Broadway in mid-April.
