Out-of-print Lou Reed lyric book I’ll Be Your Mirror: Collected Lyrics is being updated and reissued by Faber & Faber. The new version, which will be released on Nov. 7th, will reportedly include introductions by Martin Scorsese, Laurie Anderson and James Atlas.

The 605-page book is also being updated to include lyrics from Lulu, Reed’s collaborative album with Metallica, which he released in 2011. The rock icon passed away in 2013 at the age of 71 after a battle with liver disease.

In addition to the standard hardback edition, 250 copies of a limited edition will be sold for £100 (or approximately $120). The limited edition will be printed on “high gloss, reflective silver mirror paper, black cloth slipcase, and a facsimile pamphlet of previously unpublished handwritten lyrics from ‘Sally Can’t Dance,'” according to the publisher.

The standard edition will cost $30. You can preorder that here, or preorder the limited edition here.
