From the Jimmy Page: The Anthology Print Portfolio
"When I began painting my Telecaster the pattern took on the imagery of a dragon. Once it was created and painted it became like the legendary Excalibur as it travelled from the Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin." - Jimmy Page
For 'Jimmy Page: The Anthology', Jimmy Page is sharing hundreds of items from his private collection including costumes, stage equipment and instruments that have had a profound impact on the history of rock. The collection has been specially photographed under Jimmy Page's art direction, from the curation of the items, to the lighting and the composition. Each photograph tells a story, revealing fine details such as the stitching, the wood grain, the wear and tear – all the marks of a phenomenal rock and roll career.
Now, Jimmy Page has selected a number of photographs to be made available as large format (20" x 30") archival prints. Presented in artist editions of only 75 numbered copies, each print is signed by Jimmy Page with a certificate of authenticity accompanying the final framed artwork. Printed in lightfast Giclee inks onto 100% cotton rag paper, 'Jimmy Page: The Anthology Portfolio' celebrates the instruments, costumes and equipment of a musical genius in a collection of museum quality prints.
