B42579 – Genesis Publications Jimmy Page: The Photographic Autobiography Collector’s Edition Book (UK)


Jimmy Page has officially put pen to paper about his career for the first time in this limited edition. This photographic autobiography is a visual history of his career as one of the world’s most iconic guitar players. His words take the form of extended captions, which describe and document pivotal moments and events. He has also included visas, photos and stamps from his own passports. Genesis and Jimmy Page spent two years together sifting through thousands of prints to accomplish the final selection of over 650 photographs, some rare and unseen from Jimmy’s own archive, arranging the content into its narrative sequence and annotating and reviewing the design to arrive at the finished book – creating Genesis Publication’s biggest ever limited edition. With incredible attention to detail, Jimmy Page has chosen photographs representing the most significant moments in his career: from a schoolboy with a rock-a-billy quiff through his extensive work as a session musician; from The Yardbirds through Led Zeppelin, ARMS, The Firm, Outrider, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant; playing with Roy Harper and The Black Crowes; collaborating with P. Diddy and performing with Leona Lewis at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Jimmy’s own words, combined with his hand-picked photographic selection make this limited edition an historical document and a definitive visual record of a remarkable life of music. The book is quarter bound in Morocco leather with Perspex front and back boards. The page edges are gilded and the spine is blocked in gold leaf. The book is housed in a hand-crafted slipcase bound in a silk and Morocco leather.

This is No. 2286 of 2500 limited collector’s edition copies, each one hand-signed by Jimmy Page. There are some white markings to the slipcase. The condition is very good plus. The condition of the book is excellent.
