Jack White is expanding his Third Man business into publishing, though book publishing mind. Third Man Books will publish ‘Language Lessons: Volume 1’ next month, a 321-page collection of poetry and prose that comes with two vinyl LPs too.

The book will feature work from a number of writers, and will be edited by Third Man’s own Ben Swanks and Chet Weise, who founded a literary event called Poetry Sucks. Music on the record bit will come from the likes of William Tyler, Destruction Unit, Ken Vandermark and Paul ‘Wine’ Jones.

The book is out on 5 Aug and is available for online pre-order now for $50.
