Jimmy Page - Publication Update
30 Sep 2010
Hot off the press
We have just returned from Milan to review Jimmy Page's limited edition. This major publication is one of our biggest so, accordingly, we're using some of world's largest presses (printing at some of the highest levels of achievable detail - 120 l/cm). The paper is sourced from Lake Garda and not only is it acid-free and age-resistant, it's also environmentally FSC certified. The resulting pages are stunning. Once gathered, just across the city each new book is individually bound by five craftsmen dedicated solely to creating Jimmy Page's limited edition.
Five artisans, 2,500 rare books
Our traditionally skilled binders are committed to ensuring our vision that, even for those with an existing book collection from Genesis, each Jimmy Page book sets a new standard in Genesis fine book publishing. All those readers who pre-ordered before August 18th will receive finished books by Christmas. First copies will be despatched from the bindery by the end of October and all Deluxe pre-orders will be shipped during November.
Going, going ...
It is almost certain that by then this new limited edition will have sold out entirely. When this happens, Genesis will send a formal confirmation note. Further news on the edition's progress - from binding updates to first reader reviews - will be posted in the coming weeks with an online 'Notice Board' appearing for collectors to check in.
We would like to thank all our collectors for their patience. Our craftsmen binders are passionate about the art of making books. We guarantee it will be worth the wait but understand if you're itching to see more. If you would like to receive more information about Genesis fine book binding, please let us know. And, as ever, for those offering books as gifts, please call or email for a free Gift Certificate to present to your recipient.
With warm regards from all at Genesis.
