Orange Amps has unveiled a new coffee-table book charting the company's history at the Musikmesse conference in Frankfurt.

Founder and chief executive officer of the company Cliff Cooper said: "The 'Orange sound' didn't just happen, it has taken years to perfect."
The book features plenty of images of famous artists making use of Orange guitar amps, with acts such as James Brown, Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin and Johnny Cash all featured.
More recent bands to be shown utilising the manufacturer's equipment include Oasis, Slipknot, Scissor Sisters and Manic Street Preachers.
