Jimmy Page to stamp – not sign – books in Toronto

TORONTO — Fans meeting rock legend Jimmy Page at a Toronto bookstore Tuesday afternoon may feel more like they’re clearing Customs than attending a book signing.

The 71-year-old Led Zeppelin guitarist will stamp, not sign, 300 copies of his photographic autobiography Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page.

Fans lined up early Tuesday at the Indigo store on Bay Street to score wristbands for Page’s in-store appearance that begins at 3 p.m.

The hardcover book, which came out in October, features hundreds of photos chosen by Page to reflect his life and career. Online, it is currently selling at Indigo for $54.48 and at Amazon.ca for $50.43.

Page’s meet-and-greet comes with strict conditions. In addition to not signing his book — and he will stamp only one book per person — he will not sign any other memorabilia.

The stamp is reportedly Page’s “Zoso” symbol with “Toronto, 07/21/2015” underneath.

While many Page fans are excited about getting up close to the iconic guitarist, some are disappointed he’s not putting pen to paper.
