Young socialite-model-photographer Brooklyn Beckham can now tack a new title onto his already stacked resume: published author. In May 2017, Penguin Random House Children's will release his forthcoming book What I See in the UK. The hardcover will feature over 300 photographs "by and of Brooklyn" that will be "accompanied by captions and passages of text in his own words."

Though further details on the release are scarce, What I See promises "a rare glimpse at the world through his eyes." Beckham also plans to embark on a series of book signings at locations across the UK to commemorate the occasion. In the description for the book, Beckham keeps it simple, writing, "my photos. My words. My life. This is what I see." Apart from an abundance of Beckham family photos, we're guessing the book will document everything from his travels to places like Kenya to a healthy dose of skateboarding. No word on whether Chloë Grace Moretz will be making any cameos.

What I See follows a busy year for the 17-year-old, who shot his first Burberry fragrance campaign this past January. Considering Beckham's been the subject of such powerhouse photographers like Bruce Weber for New York Times Style and Alasdair McLellan for Man About Town in the past, the kid has likely learned from the best. His Instagram, followed by 8.8 million people, leans heavy towards black and white portraiture, so expect plenty of that among a mixture of analog and digital shots.

So far, the book will only be released in the UK — but fear not! Penguin Random House promises that the book can still be purchased internationally through UK distributors, and that "anyone with a ticket can come to the signings, but you will obviously need to pay for your own travel and all other costs."
