NEW YORK (AP) — The next book from former President George W. Bush will be more about pictures than words.

“Portraits of Courage” will feature 66 paintings and a four-panel mural drawn by Bush of military veterans and those in active duty, the Crown Publishing Group told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book is scheduled to come out Feb. 28, 2017. It will include forewords by former first lady Laura Bush and by Gen. Peter Pace, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Bush, who has become an avid painter since leaving the White House, is donating any net author proceeds to the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas and its Military Service Initiative that helps post-Sept. 11 veterans and their families’ transition to civilian life.
