“In this book, I wanted to include items from my personal archive that have played a part in my overall story, to give the detail behind the detail.” – Jimmy Page
The new signed, limited edition documents Jimmy Page’s musical career through selected material from his rich personal archives. Jimmy Page: The Anthology is narrated entirely in Jimmy Page's own words, and includes contextual photography spanning six decades. Hundreds of items from Jimmy Page'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.
“I was seduced by the beauty of what a six-string instrument could do, whether it was acoustic or electric, and I was never happy to stay in one style for too long. I always wanted to challenge myself.” - Jimmy Page
The Anthology documents Page's 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 also 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. 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. Jimmy Page: The Anthology is published in a limited edition of only 2,500 numbered copies, and each copy in the limited edition is hand-numbered and individually signed by the author, Jimmy Page.
