Rihanna has never been one to do things by halves, and her first foray into publishing is no exception, having released a special edition 'visual autobiography' that sits atop a hand-carved marble pedestal - and retails for an astonishing $111,000.
The 31-year-old popstar announced the release of her picture-filled autobiography on Monday, revealing at the same time that several different editions of the book would be available, with prices starting at $150 for the most basic version, then climbing up beyond $100,000 for the 'oversized ultra luxury supreme edition'.
However, while many might balk at the sight of such a sky-high price tag, the most costly copies of the book - of which there are only ten - have already sold out, with the singer's most dedicated fans rushing to get their hands on the limited version of the tome and the accompanying 2,000-lb marble stand.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the release is that there will be three-limited editions including the most luxe option which features a 2,000-pound hand-carved marble pedestal from Portugal which has already sold out.
There are only 10 in the world and last month Cardi B bid on and won the Ultra Luxury Supreme Edition - titled Stoner - for $111,000.
There is also the Luxury Supreme version which includes a gold custom bookstand created in collaboration with artists the Haas Brothers which retails at a mere $5,500.
There is also a limited edition Fenty x Phaidon version for $175 featuring a steel bookstand also designed by the Haas Brothers and standard version for $150.
No matter what format the book is in, it will contain more than 1,000 photos documenting the pop star and her life including many snaps which have never been seen.
Additional features include three paper stocks, seven single and double page gatefolds, 9 bound-in booklets, 1 tip-in sheet, and a double-sided removable poster.
Of the project, Rihanna said: '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.'
A press statement read: 'From her childhood in Barbados to her worldwide tours, from quintessential fashion moments to private time with friends and family, the book showcases intimate photographs of her life as a musician, performer, designer, and entrepreneur.'
Rihanna and Phaidon are hosting a pre-publication ticketed book party at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City this Friday.
