Jimmy Page will become the first member of Led Zeppelin to pen a book this October, when the guitarist publishes "Jimmy Page," a "photographic autobiography" whose 650 images were selected by Page, who also wrote the captions for them.
The 512-page tome is a mass market edition of the memoir Page and Britain's Genesis Publications released last year in a limited edition of2,500 copies. In a statement, Page said that, "I've been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book, and I thought of the other side of the coin. I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs, charting my whole musical journey. 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. 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" also features photos of memorabilia such as passports and clothing. The book will hit stores in October. Page has also been putting together new, deluxe versions of Led Zeppelin's nine albums, the first three of which roll out on June 3.
