Hundreds of rare photos and other images from the archives of singer-songwriter Bob Dylan will be featured in "Bob Dylan: Mixing Up the Medicine," coming out this fall. The new release also will include dozens of essays, with novelist Michael Ondaatje, critic Greil Marcus and former U.S. poet laureate Joy Harjo among the contributors.

Callaway Arts & Entertainment announced Thursday that the 600-page book will come out Oct. 24. The founder of Callaway, Nicholas Callaway, said in a statement that "Mixing Up the Medicine" will "introduce the full scope of this artist's monumental creativity and achievements to a new generation."

According to the publisher, "Mixing Up the Medicine" will include draft lyrics, photographs, drawings and other materials. The release has a list price of $100.
