Eric Clapton has joined forces with Genesis Publications to chronicle his extensive career using his guitars in a fresh way. Six-String Stories includes archival photographs of and background information on nearly 300 instruments from Clapton’s collection. In his own words, Clapton tells his story through the history of his instruments. The book will be published as a 2,000-piece limited edition, bound in cherry red leather – the color of Clapton’s Gibson ES-335 – and the pages will be edged in gold. Proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Crossroads Centre.
