Out now in the UK — and heading for our shores next month — is the mass trade edition of Jimmy Page: The Anthology. The book documents Jimmy Page’s musical career through “selected material from his rich personal archives.”

Jimmy Page: The Anthology is narrated entirely in the Led Zeppelin founder’s own words, with rare and never before seen images and stories spanning six decades.

According to the press release:

In a new text of over 70,000 words, Jimmy Page guides the reader through hundreds of rare items, many of which are previously unseen, and others of mythic status, such as the Gibson double neck guitar, his dragon-emblazoned suit, his white embroidered poppy suit, and the outfit worn in the concert film The Song Remains The Same.

Also included are handwritten diaries, correspondence, rare vinyl pressings, previously unpublished photographs and much, much more. Jimmy Page has personally selected each piece to be photographed in this book, which has been created with his full participation.
