SNEAK PEAK: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's New Book

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are gearing up to take the literary world by storm – or at least glam it up a little – with their upcoming coffee-table book Influence, and PEOPLE has a preview of its two covers.

One version of the 272-page hardcover book – due out Oct. 28 – will feature Mary-Kate on the cover, with Ashley on the back, while the other version swaps their positions.

"Ashley and Mary-Kate take readers on a journey through their celebrated young lives, pausing to reflect on what has helped shape them into who they are today," the book's publisher said in a statement. "They interviewed 20 people and wrote brief essays about each other. In each interview, the girls explore what inspired the interviewee."

Those interviewed include fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Diane Von Furstenburg, John Galliano and Christian Louboutin, as well as model-actress Lauren Hutton.

"We interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others," Mary-Kate said. "We want to explain culturally how ideas evolve."

Chimed in Ashley: "We have filled Influence with the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know – the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation."

The book's artwork includes photos and drawings provided by the interviewees, as well as never-before-seen photos from the 22-year-old twins' private collections.


Too bad Pablo Escobar is dead. They could still include an epilogue with Howard Schultz or the Marlboro Man, though.

eta: Realized that the covers were already posted last night, my apologies. This article has a lot more (and new) information in it than the other post did, however, so I'm just going to leave the post up. Plus, from the comments it sounds like a lot of people hadn't yet seen this.

Oh, and for the people wondering: According to PEOPLE, Ashley is on the top cover and Mary Kate is on the bottom cover, though TBH I thought it was the other way around. I guess the mystery lives on!
