Creative. Rihanna Readies Her First Visual Autobiography
At this point, news on R9 is more elusive than the Fountain of Eternal Youth. Really, though. Rihanna still doesn’t have a concrete update on the status of her new album. However, that doesn’t mean the generous legend isn’t keeping us exceptionally well-fed between musical projects. In fact, since dropping ANTI, the mogul has extended her brand into a variety of verticals including makeup and fashion. And she’s about to add another exciting new venture as she preps the release of her first visual autobiography.
The self-titled collection, released through Phaidon, holds more than 1000 photos. Many of those have never been published before and span the entirety of her life. Basically, it looks like it will be a must-own for any card-carrying Navy member. “I am so excited to share this collection of incredible images,” Rihanna enthused in a press release. “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.”
The standard edition of Rihanna is available October 24. However, there are several other very, very luxe editions that will also be sold. Pre-order a copy and learn more about the deluxe options here.
