Kanye West readies tour book

A 'Glow In The Dark deluxe volume' is on its way

Kanye West is reportedly putting together a “deluxe volume” book about his recent ‘Glow In The Dark’ world tour.

The tome will chronicle the massive tour that took place throughout 2008 and featured guest appearances by the likes of Jay-Z, Gnarls Barkley, Rihanna and N.E.R.D

Kanye West has turned his talents as pop artist to books,” Charlies Miers of book publisher Rizzoli New York told E! News.


“With a CD that includes ‘Star Wars’-like symphonics from the show as well as interview with Spike Jonze, it is not only a memento of one of the most successful musical performances of the year, it is an experience all its own,” he said.

The book was originally slated to be released this spring, but has been pushed back to October after the publishers realised “the scope of the project”.
