Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page
Jimmy Page, the photographic autobiography and visual history of his career as one of the world's most iconic guitar players. Jimmy has sifted through thousands of prints to accomplish the final selection of photographs, arranging the content into its narrative sequence and annotating and reviewing the design to arrive at the finished book. 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. 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 Jimmy's own words, combined with his hand-picked photographic selection make this book an historical document and a definitive visual record of a remarkable life of music.
