Jimmy Page : The Anthology Coming Soon
This new signed, limited edition documents Jimmy Page’s musical career drawing from his rich personal archives. Jimmy Page: The Anthology is narrated entirely in his own words, and includes contextual photography spanning six decades.
Hundreds of items from Jimmy's private collection have been personally selected for inclusion. From iconic guitars and stage costumes, to rare posters and vinyl pressings; and from correspondence and diary entries to unseen photographs. Every piece has been photographed and brought to life with exclusive new text provided by Jimmy Page, placing it within the story of his phenomenal career.
He tells the stories of the instruments that have long been mythicized in rock and roll history, such as his 'Dragon' Telecaster and 'Number One' Gibson Les Paul.
The Anthology documents his remarkable musical journey from listening to blues records with childhood friend Jeff Beck, to performing on TV in a Skiffle band; from his colossal body of session work in the Sixties, through to the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, and on to bands such as The Firm, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant.
Jimmy Page: The Anthology is published in a limited edition of only 2,500 numbered copies worldwide, each signed by Jimmy Page.
Quarter-bound in black leather, with gold leaf blocking and gilded page edging, the book is presented in a felt-lined slipcase. The case design is inspired by the Selmer case of Jimmy Page's first electric guitar, his 1958 Resonet Futurama.

'I've really got a lot of time for the way Genesis produce their books, they're really quality items. As someone who's always been interested in having a library themselves, I appreciate fine bookbinding and their whole ethic of what they do and what they're trying to do with a whole catalogue of books.' - Jimmy Page
