The Artist's Proofs
Jimmy Page Collector Edition
Artist's Proofs copies (books numbered I-XXV)
Just 25 books were created as Artist's Proofs for Jimmy Page's limited edition. Each are complete Deluxe copies, signed by Jimmy Page as approval of the work and numbered in Roman numerals..
The book is fully bound by hand in a single morocco leather hide, which is glazed and polished. A gold-leaf 'Zoso' blocking appears on the front board. The natural grain leather has been tanned and dyed to Jimmy Page's specification, to reach his chosen midnight hue.
The page edges are gilded, and the spine is hand-blocked in gold leaf. A specially created marbled end paper lines the interior with a blend of blues, blacks and silver.
The book is presented in an archival solander box. The folding case is bound in midnight-hue silk. Inside, a soft and supple traditional felt lining will protect your leather-bound book.
The silk-bound solander box is blocked in gold leaf and, as a finishing touch, an aluminium plate screen-printed with one of Jimmy Page's favourite portraits has been inset by hand onto the front of the case.
Each book is individually numbered and signed by Jimmy Page.
This large format book is over 500 pages and reproduces more than 650 photographs and illustrations, making it the biggest limited edition that Genesis has produced to date. It is fine-screen printed and image varnished on to heavyweight art paper (size: 280mm x 330mm).
The Artist's Proofs are hand-bound in morocco leather.
