Rihanna signed copies of her new book, Rihanna, at Barnes & Noble on 5th Avenue in New York City.
Hundreds of people came out—forming lines around the block—to get their books signed and to meet the pop star and fashion icon. The signing was a frenzy of activity, with fan reactions ranging from adoration to tears (and including an impromptu dance routine). Rihanna graciously signed hundreds of copies of her book, took photographs with her fans, and looked as lovely as ever.

“The year was 1968, and the Beatles — deep into the heavy, divisive sessions for the self-titled record that would come to be called “The White Album” — were ready for anything that felt fresh and and provocative and different. And so when it came time to shoot a new cover for LIFE magazine, instead of calling on the celebrity and portrait photographers they had worked with many times before, the Beatles gave the gig to a guy they’d never met: Don McCullin, a Brit lensman best known for his war photography.”

“Seeing firsthand how the objects inside a designer’s home can imbue the viewer with a deeper understanding of his or her work, [Leslie] Williamson set out on a project that would take her to the homes of luminaries such as Albert Frey, Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Wharton Esherick, and George Nakashima. What she found is bound to delight aficionados of those artists’ work.”

“A stiff wind was blowing through Chelsea, driving the cold rain sideways. It was last Thursday, early evening, just after quitting time. Seven in the evening is hardly a decent hour for a must-attend party, let alone one held outdoors in a space sheltered, though barely, by the elevated train tracks of the High Line. Still, New York being New York, there were already people lining up by a half-shuttered riot gate, umbrellas blown inside-out, waiting to get in.”

“For DB Burkeman, stickers are those little markers that document our culture. Whether it’s the first “Watch Out! Punk is Coming!” sticker slapped up on the Lower East Side in late 1970s or a 1930s R. Stanton Avery silk-screened political bumper sticker, they capture a point in time that somehow defined American culture. So it only makes sense that Burkeman, along with his partner, Monica LoCascio, got to researching the art of stickers and churned out Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art. The 300-page book traces the visual and social history of the medium, and explores the relationship artists have with their pieces and how they communicate with viewers.”
