Rihanna hosted an autograph signing session celebrating the release of her new coffee table book, titled “Rihanna: The Last Girl On Earth,” Wednesday (Oct 27) at a Barnes & Noble in New York City. The book documents the pop singer with hundreds of never-before-seen photos as she records her Rated R album and performs all over the world for her “Last Girl On Earth” Tour.

“I think it was really special to have behind-the-scenes photos – you know, pictures that the fans haven’t seen before – all together of a very specific moment of my life, an album of my life,” Rihanna told MTV News. “They just get to see all the things that they hadn’t seen that were going on behind the scenes; really cool stuff, not typical. They’re really fun photos. And even for me, when I look at them, they say so much. …. Photos really tell a thousand words.”
