Johnny Depp is launching his own publishing imprint.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star is working with major publisher HarperCollins to launch Infinitum Nihil - which shares the name of his production company - which the company promises will be ''authentic, outspoken and visionary.''

Johnny said in a statement: ''[Infinitum Nihil] will do [its] best to deliver publications worthy of people's time, of people's concern. Publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.''

Among the titles to be released through the imprint will be 'The Unraveled Tales Of Bob Dylan'.

The book - which is slated for release in 2015 - is penned by historian Douglas Brinkley aims to reveal the truth behind the songwriter's life and career.

Douglas - who has interviewed the notoriously private singer several times for the book - said: ''Johnny and I thought the Dylan book was the ideal way to inaugurate the Infinitum Nihil series.

''Bob has been very warm and forthcoming with us. His music has inspired us both deeply since we were teenagers.''

In January 2013, the imprint will publish late folk singer Woody Guthrie's novel 'House of Earth'. The musician finished the book in 1947 but did not seek its publication.

His daughter Nora Guthrie and the Woody Guthrie Foundation are assisting with the publication.

An essay by Johnny and Douglas - with who the actor co-wrote the Grammy-nominated liner notes for the documentary 'Gonzo: the Life and Work of Dr Hunter S Thompson' - will introduce the novel.
