NEW YORK — Fans of Chuck Lorre‘s vanity cards, which appear at the end of his TV shows, will no longer have to hit pause on their DVRs to study his vanity cards.

Lorre, who writes, produces and is a co-creator of sitcoms such as “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike and Molly,” is publishing a coffee-table book of the cards titled, “What Doesn’t Kill Us, Makes Us Bitter.”

Vanity cards are the graphics that air for a second or two at the end of his shows. The cards are often political, biting and even controversial.

Chuck Lorre Productions has a website dedicated to their archives.

The book will be published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS Corp., in October.
