People magazine is set to publish a book honoring Paul Newman.
The actor and philanthropist died last week at his home in Westport, Connecticut. He was 83.
The 96-page soft-cover tribute will carry a cover price of $12 and be distributed in bookstores and newsstands beginning on October 11. A print run of 450,000 is slated for the Newman book, People says.
The book, planned before the actor's death, will not benefit any charities. â€śBecause of Newmanâ€™s illness, we began working on this project before his passing,â€ť a spokesperson for People said.
The magazine, which put Newman on its cover this week, has a long history of publishing books, producing tributes and retrospectives since 1991. Since 2004, the magazine has published 24 books, including tributes to Johnny Carson, Princess Diana and â€ś20 Years of the Sexiest Man Alive.â€ť
