“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
by Jimmy Page
The new signed limited edition documents Jimmy Page’s musical career through previously unpublished material from his rich personal archives. The book 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 in this Jimmy Page: The Anthology. 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.
Jimmy Page 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.
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 and Page & Plant.
