The Collector Copies
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 limited edition books are hand-bound in morocco leather and laser-cut Perspex. The translucent front and back boards are screen-printed with two of the author's favourite portraits.
As with every detail of the book, the leather is created to the author's own specifications and is dyed a bespoke 'midnight hue'.
The page edges are gilded, and the spine is decoratively blocked in gold leaf. A specially created marbled end paper lines the interior with a blend of midnight blues, blacks and silver.
The book is presented in a hand-crafted slipcase that is bound in a 'midnight hue' silk. Blocked in gold leaf, the slipcase also features a morocco leather trim.
'I've really got a lot of time for the way Genesis produce their books, they're really quality items. As someone who's always been interested in having a library themselves, I appreciate fine bookbinding and their whole ethic of what they do and what they're trying to do with a whole catalogue of books.'
