I think this would be a #1 seller. I asked Sharon about this idea. I would like to see handwritten lyrics book with scripts for movies and concepts for clothing, stage designs etc. I think she said something to the effect they would be using in some videos, art for projects but would not release journals with personal stuff.

YES..

THey could even scan those pages and sell them to me as Xerox copies

bound up with Brown paper and string



Now see that's my issue, there are tons of notes and lyrics written in his handwritting online right now, anyone could just print them out and bind them and sell them. For those that want it more power to y'all, but that isn't for me at all. I want thought and effort put into it and whatever money I spend to be towards keeping PP and his legacy standing.

Yeah, but they're not curated. With that thought and effort you mention, a book of his handwritten notes, lyrics, musings, could be amazing. I think it would depend on the mind of the receiver, what type of learner you are. Visual, auditory, etc. With Prince, there are a lot of paths for your mind to relate to his. I want one more.

I think a thoughtful, curated version of his notes and journals would be great to release. I think they should all be kept though(including the personal stuff) and maybe released for academic study under closed circumstances in the distant future

I wouldn't buy the book personally. I just want to spend my money on his music.

As it looks right now music will be coming out only slowly; you will never hear a significant part of the vault.

I asked this question since after reading the 5 pages of the Dreams manuscript yesterday on the Amsterdam expo, I was really touched by that. The text was on the one hand rather naive (describing the main character, himself, as 'our hero'), on the other hand showing interesting psychological reflections on how and why the various characters had to be shaped a certain way. (He described Jill as clumsy, and cutting her hair like prince to impress him, after that did not work, she cut her dog's hair that way, LOL!!). Also, an explicit love scene between P and Vanity was described in much detail, including various cinematografic instructions on how the scene should be filmed to obtain the desired (and non X-rated!) effect. . That text gave me a really beautiful view inside the head of 'our hero'... and that's why a book of more unknown handwritings would be very welcome for me​

I bet that was a treat! I would've love to have seen it. Thanks for sharing.

And yes, if I were to come into big cashy cash, I would definitely buy handwritten documents- especially lyrics and other papers showing his thought process. Plus, he had gorgeous handwriting. It would be a treasure for sure.

Yes!!!

Seeing Prince’s handwritten notes and sketches was one of the highlights of the O2 exhibition for me. A fascinating glimpse into his creative mind.

Would there be a market for an extensive book containing a collection of handwrittings by Prince? Like lyrics, scripts, letters, notes, etc. . would it be: definitely / maybe / never ...

Definitely

I have a compulsive right-click-save-as every time I come across Prince's handwriting.
Even if it's an errands list.
It's so beautiful somebody should make a script font out of it.

lets just face it far as the vault is concerned half of us will be dead before a large percent of that stuff is released and his siblings will probably be dead as well. from what morris hayes has said there are albums already mastered and ready to go in the vault these hoes should be working on releasing the goods

Yes.

If it could be published in a 'good way', and not as some purple-kitschy waste with bad pictures.

Yes I would! I want to read the autobiography he started, I don't care how little of it he actually finnished. Anything that is in his own words is of interest to me.
