The Police star's theatre project closed in January (15) following a brief run on the Great White Way which was marred by flagging ticket sales, and Sting even took on a role in the show himself in a bid to tempt audiences in.

However, he is hoping to refloat The Last Ship in Europe amid plans to launch it in Scandinavia, and now he is set to honour the show's turn on the New York stage in an unbound picture book.

The project is full of art inspired by The Last Ship, including pictures and prints of the show's lyrics, and was created in partnership with artist Stephen Hannock, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
