Rihanna announces the release of “The Rihanna Book” a large-format, 504-page book documenting her life and career. ‘
While fans await the highly anticipated, unnamed album from everyone’s favorite Bad Gal, Rihanna has been working hard in other industries. Fenty Beauty, an established and well-reviewed beauty brand has consistent releases and a devout fanbase. Savage by Fenty, the singer’s lingerie line recently debuted their first fashion show and her high-fashion brand FENTY made her the first black woman to lead a luxury brand for LVMH.
Becoming a full force in high fashion, lingerie, and beauty after solidifying herself as a global pop star in music makes Rihanna’s rise legendary and now, the Barbados born superstar offers a deeper look with “The Rihanna Book.”
The book features 1050 color images as well as “This Sh*t Is Heavy,” a custom tabletop bookstand created in collaboration with The Haas Brothers. Images published range from childhood keepsakes to iconic moments in her performance career.
Of course a Rihanna book goes beyond the typical hardcover.” Rihanna’s first piece of art in a new industry features a spine wrapped with a custom-dyed, rose gold, metallic cloth with the book’s title silk screened using a clear gloss UV plus a removal poster, 3 paper stocks, 7 single- and double-page gatefolds, 9 bound-in booklets, 1 tip-in sheet.
