108 ROCK STAR GUITARS:
108 ROCK STAR GUITARS by Lisa S. Johnson is the stunning new fine-art photography book featuring rare, up-close images of the guitars belonging to some of the world’s most iconic players, including Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Ace Frehley, Slash, Billy Gibbons, Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Nancy Wilson and many more. The 396-page volume, bound in embossed red leatherette, includes nearly 500 photographs focusing on the wear and tear details--nicks, scratches, sweat stains, burn marks and personal adornments and modifications--that provide an extraordinary view of the artist’s personality and playing style that few have ever seen from this perspective.
Alongside these portraits, Johnson provides personal anecdotes describing her 17-year journey to capture these treasured instruments and documents her travels from the backstage hallways of some the world’s most famous concert venues, to the artist’s private homes. The former Kodak representative showcases a variety of the last film stock ever manufactured for Kodak Professional and the transition to digital, in her exquisite homage to image and music. Foreword by Les Paul.
INCLUDES BONUS 16-page zine illustrating the inspiration behind 108 ROCK STAR GUITARS™M and one of three 108 logo guitar picks printed in holographic foil.
DELUXE EDITION ALSO AVAILABLE packed in luxurious collector’s box with an exclusively designed, hand-rolled silk chiffon scarf. Signed and numbered by the author.
