The volume, about 40 pages long, will be accompanied by a CD in which a Krakow actor reads the poems.
Initially, 200,000 copies will be printed by Krakow’s small St. Stanislas Press, and distributed by WAM Publishers. The book includes handwritten pages by the Pope and photographs.
It will be published in two editions: the cheaper edition will cost 4 euros ($4.33), and the other, 5 euros.
Vatican sources have said that translations into other languages will be done by Vatican Press.
