Tracklisting & More Information

Genesis is proud to present Jimmy Page's first official published work. His photographic autobiography is a visual history of one of the world’s most iconic guitar players.

Jimmy Page: "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."

"I have enjoyed every one of the books I've bought from you, but the one that has given me the most wonderful and enjoyable time is JIMMY PAGE by Jimmy Page. It is an extraordinary piece." – C. Arizmendi, Subscriber, Mexico

'It was important to include every milestone along the way, so people have got a real testament of the times.' - Jimmy Page

Jimmy has chosen every one of the 650 photographs. There are many rare finds, such as Led Zeppelin playing an impromptu gig in a nightclub in Jersey, or double-exposure shots of Jimmy and Brian Jones by Ian Stewart. Jimmy chose one of his favourite portrait shots for the book cover: a 1977 passport photo, shot by Neal Preston on board Led Zeppelin's private tour plane.

'I wanted to make it as thorough as possible, so that meant trawling through all the thousands of files that photographers had taken, and pulling from my personal collection as well.' - Jimmy Page

Jimmy Page has officially put pen to paper about his career for the first time in this limited edition.

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.

Jimmy's own words, combined with his hand-picked photographic selection make this limited edition an historical document and a definitive visual record of a remarkable life of music.

Jimmy Page: 'The increasing volume of recording dates began to demand a decision: was I a better artist or a better musician? It became an easy decision.'

Deluxe copies (books numbered 1-350)

The first 350 books in the limited edition are Deluxe copies, each one signed by Jimmy Page.

The Deluxe book is fully bound by hand in a single morocco leather hide, which is glazed and polished. A gold-leaf 'Zoso' blocking appears on the front board. The natural grain leather has been tanned and dyed to Jimmy Page's specification, to reach his chosen midnight hue.

The page edges are gilded, and the spine is hand-blocked in gold leaf. A specially created marbled end paper lines the interior with a blend of blues, blacks and silver.

The Deluxe book is presented in an archival solander box. The folding case is bound in midnight-hue silk. Inside, a soft and supple traditional felt lining will protect your leather-bound book.

The silk-bound solander box is blocked in gold leaf and, as a finishing touch, an aluminium plate screen-printed with one of Jimmy Page's favourite portraits has been inset by hand onto the front of the case.
