Neal Preston To Release Digital Led Zeppelin Book

Legendary photographer Neal Preston will release Led Zeppelin: Sound And Fury on April 15. The digital book showcases hundreds of photos, over a hundred never before seen, and contact sheets.  In addition there will be commentary from Preston as well as video and text interview with people who worked for Zeppelin along with other goodies.  The book is available for pre-order exclusively on the iBookstore.  Check out the trailer below.

There are a handful of photographers who photograph music that captured the attention of little me.  Preston is one of those photographers.  I'm sure every Zep photo I ever loved and had on my wall at some point was taken by Preston.

Created with Apple's digital book creation app, iBooks Author, this Multi-Touch experience on iPad is unprecedented in its visual style and layout, letting the reader explore never-before-seen shots of Led Zeppelin and join them not only on stage, but also backstage. Led Zeppelin: Sound And Fury contains an intro by Stevie Nicks and has contributions from bands like My Chemical Romance, Heart, Mastodon and many more.

No photographer was granted the access to Led Zeppelin that Neal Preston had. Any photo of the band from the post-1973 era familiar to fans is probably one of Preston's images. Led Zeppelin: Sound And Fury immerses you in the band's inner circle with brilliant on-stage performance photos, backstage candid shots, intimate images from onboard the band's two private planes, as well as snapshots from press conferences, movie premieres, private band parties and more.
