About This Item

In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album The Rise and F all of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. With it landed Bowie's Stardust alter-ego: A glitter-clad, mascara-eyed, sexually-ambiguous persona who kicked down the boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, fact and fiction into one shifting and sparkling phenomenon of seventies self-expression. Together, Ziggy the album and Ziggy the stage spectacular propelled the softly spoken Londoner into one of the world's biggest stars. A key passenger on this glam trip into the stratosphere was fellow Londoner and photographer Mick Rock. Rock bonded with Bowie artistically and personally, immersed himself in the singer's inner circle, and, between 1972-1973, worked as Bowie's official photographer. This limited and numbered edition brings together the best of Rock's Bowie portfolio with spectacular stage shots as well as intimate backstage portraits. Pictures for press, album jackets, and stills from promo movies sit alongside around fifty percent previously unseen images, offering unprecedented access to the many facets of Bowie's personality and his fame.
With a hologram cover of different head-shots, the book rejoices in Bowie's experimentation and unpredictability. Through the aloof and approachable, the playful and serious, the candid and contrived, this tribute bursts with the daring and energy of its unique and flamboyant star who defined, and defied, a generation. Limited to a total of 1,972 numbered copies signed by David Bowie and Mick Rock, this book is available as Collector's Edition (No. 201-1,972), and also in two Art Editions of 100 copies each, with a pigment print signed by Mick Rock.

Limited to a total of 1,972 numbered copies signed by David Bowie and Mick Rock, this book is available as a signed Collector's Edition (No. 201–1,972). This is number 538
