Tonight, April 18th, is the 2013 induction of music legends into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Performers honoured this year are Rush, Heart, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Donna Summer and Albert King, with the Ahmet Ertegun Awards for Lifetime Achievement going to Lou Adler and Quincy Jones.
Last year, Faces were inducted into the Hall of Fame and donated a copy of FACES 1969-75 to the already impressive collection of Genesis books at the Hall's library.
'Like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Genesis Publications works to collect, preserve and interpret the impact that rock music has made on our world.'- Nick Roylance
'It keeps them alive. Brilliant.'- Ian McLagan, at the FACES Hall of Fame book presentation
To celebrate the occasion, Genesis brought out a special limited edition FACES Hall of Fame solander box, with gold foil blocking, to accompany the book. A very small number of these remain and can be bought here.

Since 1974 Genesis has created signed limited edition books on behalf of authors and artists ranging from the Beatles to Buckingham Palace.
