Cassell Illustrated has acquired Morrissey: Alone and Palely Loitering by photographer Kevin Cummins, who worked as NME’s chief photographer for more than a decade.
The book will chronicle Morrissey’s world as he emerged from The Smiths and established himself as a solo artist.
Commissioning editor Joe Cottington, who acquired world rights in all languages from Carrie Kania at C+W Agency, called it "a treasure trove for fans".
It will be published on 6th September, priced £30.
