Phaidon, a publishing house headquartered in London and New York, has revealed that it will be publishing a self-titled Rihanna "visual autobiography". This first-ever publication will retail for $150 USD and will release on 24 October.
According to Phaidon, the book spans 504 pages and includes over 1000 "intimate photographs of her life as a musician, performer, designer, and entrepreneur". In addition, the book contains 11 special inserts, including a removable poster, and seven gatefolds. Many of those images have been unpublished until now.
Rihanna's interiors, typography, and cover were designed by esteemed London creative studio Barnbrook, which also designed the cover for David Bowie's Blackstar album.
“We are excited and proud to publish this incredible book by this extremely talented and influential woman,’ says Phaidon’s CEO, Keith Fox. “Rihanna is such an important and groundbreaking artist, style icon, and entrepreneur and we are looking forward to sharing her fascinating life with a larger audience.”
