Jim Henson: The Biography is an upcoming biography of Jim Henson written by Brian Jay Jones. The 672-page book will be released on September 24, 2013 (Henson's 77th birthday).

==Development In July 2010, it was first reported that author Brian Jay Jones had sold a biography of Jim Henson to Ballantine Books. Jones worked 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]
