Genesis Publications announced today an expanded version of "I Me Mine," the book that Harrison first released by Genesis in 1980, then later published in a mass market edition by Simon & Schuster in 1981, and reissued by Chronicle Books in 2007. Genesis says the new version contains 53 rare photos, with several unearthed for this new edition, and contributions from Olivia Harrison and Derek Taylor. It will be issued in a limited edition of 1,000 numbered and stamped copies. The book has been expanded to 632 pages and 59 more songs have been added for a total of 141 songs.

Part 1 is the story of George Harrison's life and music through his own words, and those of his friend Derek Taylor. Part 2 has his song lyrics. A new cover has been designed by Sheperd Fairey. 

More details and purchase information is on the Genesis website. Genesis says it will also be released as a trade version this fall.
