The Jacksons first ever official publication will be released by Thames & Hudson in 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of the release of The Jackson Five’s début single “Big Boy”. The Jacksons: Legacy is a “comprehensive” and “definitive” book that tells the band’s story in their own words, alongside “outstanding” visuals. The publisher holds world rights in all languages. The title features never-before-seen pictures gained from “unparalleled access” to the family’s archives, and includes images of their mother, Katherine. T&H will support the book with a “multilayered” promotional programme with the four brothers’ Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon's involvement, including a proposed TV special and live events worldwide.
