It was reported on the Led Zeppelin Mailing list today that the £695 Deluxe Edition has reached at least one household:
JP by JP DELUXE EDITION IS HERE:
Wow what a package weighs in at 17.2 lbs and comes protected with 4 layers of
packaging the book itself is magnifico and comes in its own plush proctive bag.
No word yet on any purchasers of the £395 Collectors Edition, who didn't contribute to the book, receiving their copies yet.
Two weeks ago photographer Mark Bowman, who had two shots in the book, posted that he had received his copy:
This thing is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE....!
I just got my Collector's Edition delivered yesterday... WOW - what a
magnificent statement from James Patrick Page on his life, his contributions to
the WORLD and a legacy that will most likely be remembered along the lines of
Bach, Mozart or Beethoven.....
So if you ordered Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page, it is shipping.
If like me you didn't, you might want to stay away from the Zeppelin chat sites a while, lest you regret not splurging when you hear repeated entreaties about how fabulous this book is.
