In July 2010, publishing news blog Galleycat reported that author Brian Jay Jones had sold a biography of Jim Henson to Ballantine Books. Jones will be working on the project with the blessing of the Henson family and the Jim Henson Legacy. According to the press release, the book will cover Henson's professional career, but does not mention how much of his personal life will be featured.[1] The biography will be published by Random House/Ballantine.[2]

From 2010 to 2012, Jones spent time combing through the Henson Archives with the assistance of Karen Falk.[3]

Jones delivered the first draft manuscript to his editor in June 2012; the draft was 700-pages long.[4] The book is planned for release on September 24, 2013 — Jim Henson's 77th birthday.[5]

Jones previously published a biography of Washington Irving in 2008.
