November: Inky Blue Sky & Notes on Mythic Language books:

The booklet for the box will include the previously announced 20-page work entitled Notes on Mythic Language, which is an experimental work of a kind in that it comprises autobiographical fragments/notes on writing/track details of the pieces in the box set/some of the lyrics from the album + hybrid interviews + one legitimate interview in full. Essentially, its a book about writing.
