“With the new book,” the Led Zeppelin guitarist shared of the book earlier this year. “I wanted to present the detail behind the detail.”
“It’s an incredible experience to see those machines when they’re inking up,” he added. “The reproduction of things is absolutely superb… It’s exactly the same as how I thought it would look.”

From his early days as a young session musician, through his years on the world stage with Led Zeppelin, to his solo work and collaborations, Jimmy Page has lived a spectacular life in music. Throughout it all he has amassed an extensive private archive of iconic guitars, stage costumes and personal ephemera.
Now, in The Anthology, Jimmy Page is granting exclusive access to his archive for the first time, and telling the inside story of his phenomenal career.
In the new text of over 70,000 words, Jimmy Page guides the reader through hundreds of rare items, many of which are unseen, 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Also included are handwritten diaries, correspondence, rare vinyl pressings, previously unpublished photographs and much, much more. Created with his full participation, each piece has been individually selected by Jimmy Page, and photographed especially for the book.
The result is Jimmy Page: The Anthology. Both reflective and revealing, it is quite simply the legendary musician’s most comprehensive and fascinating account of his life to date.
