Three surviving members of Led Zeppelin – singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bass player John Paul Jones – have agreed to write a book that would be published later this year in celebration of the legendary rock band’s 50th anniversary.
It was announced on social media over the weekend that the new book, titled Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, would be the first and only official illustrated book to be produced in collaboration with members of the British band.
Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin will be out in October, published by Reel Art Press.
"Celebrating 50 years since their formation, it covers the group’s unparalleled musical career and features photographs of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham on and offstage, in candid moments and in the recording studio. This definitive 400-page volume includes previously unpublished photos, artwork from the Led Zeppelin archives and contributions from photographers around the world," the band said in a statement.

Following Led Zeppelin’s massive concert at the O2 Arena in London, Page has hinted the band could stage another performance in the future. Plant, however, has ruled out the possibility of Led Zeppelin coming together again for a live performance.
Only Page who was actively involved in the remastering of all Led Zeppelin's seven studio albums and its subsequent marketing campaign in the past four years.
