Jimmy’s Pages

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

Jimmy Page has an­nounced the Oc­to­ber re­lease of an epony­mous au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, through Ge­n­e­sis Pub­li­ca­tions. The 512-page book is a pho­to­graphic es­say fea­tur­ing 650 pho­tos hand­picked by Page from mag­a­zines, pho­tog­ra­phers in­clud­ing Ross Halfin, Kate Si­mon, Gered Mankowitz, Do­minique Tarlé, Pen­nie Smith, Jim Mar­shall, and from Page’s own ar­chives. Each one is cap­tioned by Jimmy, who over­saw the struc­ture and de­sign of the book.

Page has also added un­seen pho­to­graphs, mem­o­ra­bilia and re­pro­duc­tions of ev­ery one of his pass­ports. Jimmy’s pass­port stamps were used to ver­ify all tour dates, which are sprin­kled through­out the book along­side other mem­o­ra­bilia, in­clud­ing visas, tour sched­ules and more. “I wanted to make it as thor­ough as pos­si­ble,” Page says of the book, which has been two years in the mak­ing. “So that meant trawl­ing through all the thou­sands of files that pho­tog­ra­phers had taken, and pulling from my per­sonal col­lec­tion as well. There’s a photo of me play­ing the guitar by the fire at Bron-Yr-Aur cot­tage. It’s the most com­plete doc­u­ment that there’s ever go­ing to be, be­cause of the amount of time that I’ve put into ev­ery as­pect.” Jimmy Page will be avail­able from book­stores from Oc­to­ber; see www.jim­my­page­book.com for more info.
