Portraits Of Robert Plant is the latest book in the new ‘Portraits’ series from Rufus Publications.

Set for publication in the UK from 26 April, the book is a photographic celebration of Plant’s journey through the ’80s, published as a brand-new coffee-table book tracing his career with a mixture of well-known, rare and largely unseen photographs from some of rock’s greatest photographers, including George Bodnar who toured extensively with Plant and his band. Portraits also includes a career essay from music journalist Mark Blake, tracking Plant’s career through the decade.

The images included in Portraits celebrate what happened after Robert Plant’s career with the celebrated Led Zeppelin, taking in the start of would become his long and wildly eclectic solo career. Plant had just turned thirty-two when Led Zeppelin finished, following the death of his friend and drummer John Bonham. He wasn’t ready to stop making music, but he retreated to his family home, Jennings Farm in Worcestershire, to grieve and ponder his next move. In reality, Plant would spend the next ten years coming to terms with his musical past and, at times, running away from it.
