Jimmy Page Pictorial Book Public Exhibit in London

JIMMY PAGE: Public Exhibit Of Pictorial Autobiography To Be Held In London - Oct. 26, 2010

On November 5 and November 6, Genesis Publications will host an exhibit of images from the "Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page" book and selections from their archive at Elms Lester Painting Rooms, London, England.

"Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page" has become the fastest-selling book in the history of Genesis Publications, having sold-out through pre-orders alone. The book, which documents the iconic guitarist's life from his childhood in music through his legendary career with LED ZEPPELIN to the present day, was personally compiled by Page and features 650 images, many from his personal archive. Jimmy also wrote the accompanying text and helped design the magnificently luxurious binding to create an artefact that is an incredible visual documentary which reflects his vast contribution to music.

Genesis Publications will host an exhibition of images from the book plus selected books from 35 years publishing, at London's Elms Lester Painting Rooms on November 5 and November 6, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

The exhibition is open to the public who will be able to see a collection of works by more than 70 different photographers including such legendary names as Kate Simon, Neal Preston, Ross Halfin and Pennie Smith.

As the book has sold out before its official launch, this will be the only chance to see these exclusive images outside of the limited-edition publication.

(Imagine that an exhibit for images from Jimmy Page's autobiographical pictorial book! Well that's fine for all people living near London who wish to par take in the unveiling and for those that can't afford the book which is over 700 dollars!

Hmmm wonder how much it will cost to view said images at the exhibit in London.

Obviously there won't be a similar event here in the states for said book, so to me it's a pricey affair either way you slice it. Making a trek to London from the U.S. just to see the book images - think us Americans would do well to buy the book if you can afford it. Maybe Jimmy might out of the goodness of his heart do a version for fans of lesser means perhaps?)
