Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has announced a London book signing event for his photographic memoir, “Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page.”
Page will appear at Waterstones Piccadilly on Tuesday, December 2, where he will be hand-stamping copies of the book with a personalized ‘Zoso’ stamp unique to this location.

"I've been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book and I thought of the other side of the coin," said Page. "I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs, charting my whole musical journey."
The book sold-out of its limited-edition run of 2,500 copies upon its initial release in 2010, becoming the fastest-selling book in Genesis Publications' 40-year history.
With incredible attention to detail, the guitarist has chosen photographs representing the most significant moments in his career: from a schoolboy with a rock-a-billy quiff through his extensive work as a session musician; from The Yardbirds through Led Zeppelin, ARMS, The Firm, Outrider, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant; playing with Roy Harper and The Black Crowes; collaborating with P. Diddy and performing with Leona Lewis at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Page has officially put pen to paper about his career in this expansive edition. His words take the form of extended captions, which describe and document pivotal moments and events. He has also included visas, photos and stamps from his own passports.
