Here's hoping Kanye West eases up on the all-caps for his next writing venture.

The blog-happy hip-hop star is collaborating on Glow in the Dark, a "deluxe volume" about his most recent world tour that will feature documentary photographs of West's good life onstage and off, sketches and other conceptual plans for the tour's set design and costumes, exclusive commentary and a greatest-hits CD from the Glow in the Dark set list.

"Kanye West has turned his talents as pop artist to books," Charlies Miers, VP and publisher at Rizzoli New York, said in a statement to 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."

The publishing house confirmed the book is underway and due out in October, after originally being scheduled for a spring release after the scope of the project was truly understood.

West's Glow in the Dark tour crisscrossed the globe between April and December and featured appearances by Jay-Z, Rihanna, Lupe Fiasco, Gnarls Barkley, N.E.R.D. and Nas.
