The leather-bound books, which contain 650 photographs as chosen by the Led Zeppelin guitarist and narrated with his first-ever written self-reflection, are now available for purchase from Genesis Publications of Surrey, England.
At more than 500 pages in length, this book is "Genesis Publications' biggest ever limited edition," the company said in a mailing to customers. The deluxe edition, whose books are numbered 1 through 350, sells for £695 (approximately $1,060), while the collector's edition, whose books are numbered 351 through 2,500, sells for £395 (approximately $602). Both editions are autographed by Page.
In an interview published in the February issue of Mojo magazine, Page commented on why he chose to make his autobiographical debut with the Genesis Publications name. "I've seen Genesis books before and I've really got a lot of time for the way they produce their books, they're really quality items," he said. "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."
