Following the sensational release of Rihanna’s visual autobiography, Phaidon announces a remarkable limited luxury edition, signed “Love, Rihanna” by Rihanna herself.
Each special edition is signed “Love, Rihanna” by Rihanna and numbered 1-500.
High-end publisher Phaidon announced the release of Love, Rihanna: Luxury Supreme, a love letter to Rihanna‘s fans, in which Rihanna invites you into her world with a visual autobiography. The visual autobiography features over 1,000 images in a 504 -page book, with 7 gatefolds, and 11 special inserts, including 9 bound-in booklets, a die-cut tip-in sheet, and a double-sided removable poster.
“From her Barbados childhood to her worldwide tours, from iconic fashion moments to private time with friends and family, the book showcases intimate photographs of her life as an artist, performer, designer, and entrepreneur,” unveiled Phaidon.
Love, Rihanna book is a large-format limited edition, hand-sewn and bound in bespoke padded Japanese-designed fabric with a pearlescent finish, with an embedded, matte black, laser-cut steel logo, designed by Barnbrook studio. The endpapers feature a custom design by The Haas Brothers in spot gloss on a rich black paper stock.
To mark this special publication, Phaidon unveiled a new behind-the-scenes video detailing the creation of the Rihanna book. Rihanna was more than five years in the making and was a labor of love for her, her team, and her partners. Fans can now go behind the scenes with Rihanna on her journey to create this visual autobiography . . . from the earliest meeting where Rihanna outlined her vision to an intimate design meeting with Phaidon, The Haas Brothers, and Rihanna for the books’ stands. Recount the memories with Rihanna as she looks at early images for the book; meets Barnbrook, the designers of the book who share secrets from the book’s stories; and peek inside the factory that manufactured the book and the studio where its limited-edition stands were made. And, finally, see it all come together at the book’s launch at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City this past October.
