Gotta whole lot of cash? This book may be for you.

Jimmy Page, the famously private guitar god of Led Zepplin fame, will finally be sharing his memories of rock stardom with his fans -- for a price. Page is producing a 512-page collector's edition of "Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page," for the low low price of £445, or about $686.

For that amount of cash, you'd expect Jimmy to come to your house and read it to you himself. No dice -- but you will get more than 700 hand-picked photos of Page in a "visual documentary" of the seminal rocker, starting with a shot of him as a 12-year-old choirboy.

According to The Guardian, the leather-bound book will be wrapped in silk, which will match the custom-made midnight-blue ink used for the print.  But it won't contain the answers to burning questions fans might have.

"As far as a pictorial record, you can certainly see a little bit behind the music, and you can make your own mind up," the Guardian quotes Page as saying. "I'm not really colouring it too much with what annotations I've made. I didn't want to laden it with controversies. I just wanted the pictures to speak in a way that the music does."
