Rihanna Unapologetic View-Master® Reel (2012)

Rhianna View-Master deluxe set

The Barbadian beauty's seventh album Unapologetic was released on Nov. 16, 2012 and came in the standard edition, and what you might call the VIP baller's version as well. The limited edition, numbered "Diamonds Executive Platinum Box," edition of the album, released on Dec. 11, 2012, cost $250 and featured extras not available to the average fan.

Among the goodies: collectible colored "Diamonds" vinyl remixes, an 11 x 17 handwritten personal note from Rihanna to her Navy, 2GB credit card-style USB flash drive, unisex shirt with a Michael Muller photo of Rihanna taken during her Unapologetic album shoots, seven 12 x 15 lithographs featuring Muller photos, a Magnus Voll Mathiassen illustration and exclusive Unapologetic images. It included three stickers featuring the album's cover art that can be used on iPhones or other smart phones, seven laptop stickers featuring Mario Hugo artwork, the Unapologetic album and "Diamonds" single artwork, collectible colored vinyl featuring "Diamonds" remixes and a custom-made View-Master with unreleased images of Rihanna's style transformation.

And that's not all! It also came with a custom 40-page notebook with handwritten notes and lyrics, a deluxe version of the album with a 28-page photo and art booklet, a 20-minute DVD with unreleased footage, a clip from the Loud Tour and an exclusive fan poster.

Sawyer's News Reel Collection in Hardbound Book

Bound copy of Sawyer's News Reel newsltetters

A Sawyer's News Reel 1956 - 1959 special hardcover bound book from the editor-in-chief, sold for $303.38 with 27 bids.

Sawyer's News Reel was a special issue for employees of the View-Master® factory in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Offered here is a unique historical item; a beautiful hardcover bound version of 3 1/2 years of Sawyer's News Reel editions. These bound Sawyer's News Reels belonged to the editor-in-chief of the issue, at least from 1956 to 1959. Maxine Hoenshell is also named in the issues as Managing Editor. This hardback version - now over 60 years old - of the issues of Volume 7, Number 1 through Volume 10, Number 7, was made especially for her and was located in her office in the Oregon factory.

You don't get closer to history than with this unique collector's book. The Sawyer's News Reel issues contain a wealth of information. The years 1956 up to and including 1959 were very interesting, because all kinds of things happened to View-Master® company's explosively and internationally growing market. A factory in Australia, a factory in England, and in Belgium. But also news about directors, innovations in the Oregon factory, factory expansions, employee news, Christmas and other gatherings, and also beautiful new productions that View-Master® was going to release.

A Holy Grail for the real collector. It was the same for the late Harry zur Kleinsmiede, the book comes from his personal collection. In 2011, he obtained this book from editor-in-chief Hoenshell. As a true connoisseur he immediately appreciated its special value.
