Legendary punk rocker and singer-songwriter Patti Smith has just published her latest creative outlet, A Book of Days, that feature over 365 images and self-reflections of the now 75-year-old that captivate her essence as both an award-winning author, mother, poet, and musical icon.

A Book of Days is said to have been inspired by Smith's wildly popular Instagram account, where she has amassed over one million followers sharing images of herself and her daughter Jesse (also a musician), and son Jackson, as well as images from tour and her travels, all accompanied by poems that she beautifully writes.
