In the trailer for The Anthology, Page explains: “The reason for doing this book and behind the detail of everything is just basically because I did have the material to be able to do it, I actually had the idea to be able to do it and that’s what I wanted to do.
“I wanted to make the book really fascinating so people could just really get right into what is being shown. With the guitars, I really wanted to get close up and personal with them, with the angles that were taken.”
According to a press release, the musician will “guide the reader through hundreds of rare items, many of which are previously unseen, and others of mythic status, such as the Gibson double-neck guitar, his dragon-emblazoned suit, his white embroidered poppy suit, and the outfit worn in the concert film The Song Remains The Same”.
The Anthology will also feature hand-written diaries, rare vinyl pressings, previously unpublished photographs and more.
Meanwhile, Page recently revealed that Led Zeppelin planned a whole tour after reuniting with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones for a one-off gig in 2007. The dates never came to fruition and the guitarist said “there has not been any discussion about any tour ever since – nor will there be”.
