It's inspired by Smith's Instagram account

Patti Smith is to publish a new book next month, called A Book Of Days.

Taking inspiration from her Instagram account, the book is built around 365 photos – one for each day of the year. Smith's thoughts on the images are also included inside. Publisher Bloomsbury's description of it reads: "Original to this book are vintage photographs: anniversary pearls, a mother's keychain, and a husband's Mosrite guitar. Here, too, are photos from Smith's archives of life on and off the road, train stations, obscure cafés, a notebook always nearby. In wide-ranging yet intimate daily notations, Smith shares dispatches from her travels around the world."

Bloomsbury will publish A Book Of Days on November 15, 2022.
