Bon Jovi, the '80s rock band that gave single-tone hair and regular-wash jeans a bad name, has signed a book deal with HarperCollins.

Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful, which uses heretofore unpublished photos and personal accounts to chronical the band's "highs and lows" "on stage, on the road, and at home," will be released next fall in honor of the group's 25th anniversary, according to a press release from HarperCollins. A documentary bearing the book's title also will be released.

"We are honored to be collaborating with one of the most successful bands in rock history," said Marta Schooler, Publisher of Collins Design, in the press release. "Bon Jovi's continuing success has been no less than remarkable and we are thrilled to be publishing the must-have book for all their fans."

Other books about Bon Jovi include Jon Bon Jovi (Citadel 2004), All Night Long (Omnibus Press 1995), Bon Jovi: A Biography (Pan Publishing 1997), Jon Bon Bovi (Omnibus Press 1997) and Bon Jovi (In Their Own Words) (Omnibus Press 1999).

HarperCollins is a unit of News Corp ( NWS), which competes in the media space with such firms as New York Times ( NYT), Washington Post ( WPO), Gannett ( GCI), McClatchy ( MNI) and A.H. Belo ( AHC)
