    Beyhive, get ready – there’s some seriously enviable collectors gold that’s about to be dished out to us mere mortals.

    Beyoncé might not have made it to the Met Gala 2017, but she’s been up to something even more exciting than avant garde costumes and Rihanna’s absolute corker of a dress that pretty much won the red carpet (sorry, Ri-Ri).

    In order to celebrate the year anniversary of Lemonade, Beyoncé is releasing a collectors box set version which you can now buy on her website for £232 ($299.99). But before you gasp in horror at the price tag and refuse to splash the cash, you need to know what this dreamy collection includes.

    The How to Make Lemonade Box Set is made to order, meaning that it’s been specially put together for yours truly. Granted, Bey probably won’t be tottering down to the post office to ship them out, but still. Pretty close.

    On top of that, it contains the first pressing of the double LP vinyl and a priceless 600-page hardcover book, which not only features unseen photos from the Lemonade recording but also includes all of Beyoncé’s original notes and lyrics.

    Of course, you’ll also get all the audio and visual downloads and will be treated to a bit of poetry by Warsan Shire.
