The book, which is aptly named Photograph, will be released as an ebook initially, with hand-bound copies to be released later in the year.

Using the ebook, readers will be able to zoom in on images and hear audio clips as the former drummer narrates the tales behind the pictures.

The ebook is to be sold on the iTunes bookstore and released on June 12, with a limited edition print version of 2,500 copies out in December.
