A collection of the Joy Division frontman's personal writings and lyrics will be released early next year.

The book, entitled 'So This Is Permanence: Lyrics and Notebooks', will contain so far unpublished entries of Ian Curtis' notes, giving the interspersed lyric excerpts new, in-depth meanings.

Hailed as an enigmatic and influential songwriter, Curtis suffered from epilepsy and depression, committing suicide just before Joy Division's debut tour of America.

With a foreword by Curtis' widow, Deborah, the book is said to cast light on Ian Curtis' creative process and is edited by music journalist Jon Savage, who wrote the foreword for Deborah Curtis' 'Touching From A Distance'.

'So This Is Permanence' is set for release in Spring 2014 by Faber.
