Genesis Publications has partnered with Eric Clapton to document his entire career through the tools of his trade: his guitars.
Launched in tandem with the 2013 Crossroads Festival, signed limited edition SIX-STRING STORIES is available to order now from www.ClaptonBook.com, with a donation from each sale to benefit the Crossroads Centre.
SIX-STRING STORIES is told through Clapton’s own words, background information for each instrument and breathtaking performance shots from over 80 of the world’s best photographers, including David Bailey, Terry O’Neill and Lord Snowdon.
‘One by one these guitars were the chapters of my life. It was quite overwhelming to see them evolve into this collection.’ – Eric Clapton
Nearly 300 pieces from Clapton’s collection are brought together here for the very first time and placed in the chronology of his career, with playlists and concert dates accompanying the instruments that were used on million-sellers and at mind-blowing performances.
SIX-STRING STORIES will be presented as a 2,000 piece limited-edition with each book signed by Eric Clapton, hand bound in cherry red leather to match Clapton’s famous Gibson ES-335, with gold and silver blocking, housed in a silk-screened buckram slipcase.
