For the first time ever, Rihanna is set to release her very own autobiography with Phaidon – the premier global publisher of the creative arts with over 1,500 titles in print. You’ll now be able to discover the fashion and beauty mogul’s origins accompanied by intimate photographs capturing her life as a singer, designer, and entrepreneur.
Titled Rihanna, the large-format trade edition book has 504 pages including more than 1,000 photographs, 11 special inserts, a removable poster and seven gatefolds. The cover features an eye-catching color photograph of Rihanna and wrap-around cloth binding. “I am so excited to share this collection of incredible images. I’m very grateful to the talented photographers and artists who contributed. We’ve been working on the book for over five years and I’m really happy to be able to finally share it with everybody,” said Rihanna.
In addition to Rihanna, the publishing company and the Barbados singer have teamed up with The Haas Brothers on three limited editions of the book, each including a special bookstand. The Rihanna: Fenty x Phaidon edition features black and white photographs on the front and back along with a custom-designed tabletop bookstand inspired by Rihanna’s hands. The Rihanna: Luxury Supreme and Rihanna: Ultra Luxury Supreme have been incorporated with custom-made black fabric and one-of-a-kind stands for each of the special editions.
