Contrary to rumours, there was only one version of this book made. No book will contain the fold out spread shown here because the editors thought it focused too much on Jackson's death and The Michael Jackson Opus was intended to be a celebration of Jackson's life.

According to The Telegraph, the first five copies of this book (autographed by celebrities like Liz Taylor, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Quincy Jones and P Diddy) were expected to be auctioned with the proceeds going to Michael Jackson's charity interests.

The Official Michael Jackson Opus is sold out on the official site. However, it is still available from some sellers on eBay and Amazon.com.
