"Thank you for your interest. We look forward to writing with further news."

Update: In an interview published in the February issue of Mojo magazine, Jimmy Page discusses his book project two years in the making. Here is an excerpt:
"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. As someone who's been interested in having a library themselves, I appreciate fine bookbinding and the whole ethic of what they do and what they're trying to do with a whole catalogue of books. I was approached to do it, and I was into it.

"Anyway, I wanted to do something that started at the very beginning. I haven't got me with the very first guitar that I played because, just as it came into my life by accident, I don't really remember how it went out of my life. But everything after that is in there.

"It shows the first guitar that was bought, my first electric guitars, my first groups. It goes through The Yardbirds changes with the line-up when Jeff [Beck] was still there and when there was four of us. Then it goes through the whole of Led Zeppelin and the changing face of Led Zeppelin -- how we each change individually. It was 10 years, and 10 years is a long time. Looking at 1969 alone, I made a point of focusing on how fast things were moving.

"All of it is presented properly, and I hope it's interesting."
