The volume will likely be penned by journalist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame curator Jim Henke, who oversaw the museum's recent U2 exhibit, "In the Name of Love: Two Decades of U2."
The book is expected to feature a bounty of rare visual material from throughout U2's career. No release date has been announced, but initial plans called for it to hit shelves around the same time as U2's in-progress next Interscope studio album, which is expected by the end of the year.
In related news, U2 frontman Bono has donated 200 sets of five prints he illustrated in conjunction with a new CD/book of Prokofiev's "Peter & the Wolf" to the Irish Hospice Foundation. For more information, visit the project's official Web site (http://www.peterwolf.org).
