A new picture book about guitar player Joan Jett is to be published.

The collection of photographs – which is named after the singer – was taken by Todd Oldham and charts her career as a member of 1970s girl band the Runaways.

Speaking to the Telegraph about her long-lasting career, Jett stated that the idea of women playing the guitar was threatening to the establishment at the time.

"In the early days of the Runaways, our audience [had] never seen anything like girls playing rock n' roll," she recalled.

"We put it right in their face."

Earlier this year, a signature Gibsonguitar was designed for Jett ahead of the release of a greatest hits album featuring her best-know work.

The Joan Jett Blackheart guitar is based on the instrument she used back in the 1970s and 1980s, when the musician recorded tracks such as I Love Rock N' Roll and Bad Reputation.
