Former President Donald Trump has been mocked for releasing a book detailing his time in the White House.

Trump is publishing a hardcover collection of hundreds of photographs from his administration, featuring his own captions, some handwritten. “Our Journey Together” is scheduled for December. 7, but not through a traditional New York publisher.

It will instead be released by a new company formed by son Donald Trump Jr and campaign aide Sergio Gor, Winning Team Publishing.

He at one stage teased it to be “the book of all books”. According to Amazon, the book is 320 pages, with a suggested reading audience of 12 years and up. It's call "a must-have for patriots", according to its description.

While Barack Obama, George W Bush and other recent predecessors of Trump wrote memoirs and announced multi-million dollar deals with Penguin Random House and other publishing houses soon after leaving office, New York publishers have resisted working with Trump — especially after the January 6 siege of the US Capitol by some of his supporters.

Simon & Schuster dropped a book by one Trump backer, Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, and faced widespread anger within the company for reaching a deal for a memoir by Trump's vice president, Mike Pence.

On Twitter, Trump Jr announced the book’s release to widespread mockery over the fact it’s a picture book and not a written memoir.

“A picture book? Well, words are not his forte so probably best that he sticks to pics,” one woman wrote.

Others jokingly asked if they would need crayons to enjoy the book.

“Does it have pop ups? And connect the dots?” one man tweeted, while others asked if it comes with crayons.

Some asked when it would be available for purchase at the thrift shop.

“Great! More paper for the cabin outhouse,” another woman tweeted.

"Now I'll have something to use if I run out of toilet paper," one user added.

The book is listed for A$103 or $317 for a signed copy.
