Nearly 600 pages of writings by late Doors singer Jim Morrison will be published on June 8, the most extensive collection of his words.

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison: Poetry, Journals, Transcripts and Lyrics, which has been put together with the assistance of his estate, will feature both previously published work as well as never-before-seen material, including unrecorded song lyrics, poetry, personal notebook entries, drawings, photos and more.

Particularly noteworthy are the written details from some of Morrison's most turbulent and mysterious years. Recently discovered notebooks reveal his musings from his 1970 trial in Miami, in which he was sentenced on obscenity and profanity charges. Also included is what is believed to be his final collection of writings from Paris in 1971, not long before his death at age 27.
