HarperCollins has just become the proud parents of a full-color U2 photo retrospective book. According to Billboard the publishing company has just secured worldwide rights to the publication. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame curator Jim Henke, who recently oversaw the museum’s U2 exhibit, “In The Name Of Love: Two Decades Of U2″, will be the scribe for the book.
The volume will feature a score of rare visual material spanning all of U2′s career. There is no official release date yet, however, tentative plans have been made to release the publication around the same time that U2′s upcoming album streets. The goal for that street date is the end of the year.
