His life was a work of art.
Now, artists and musicians who worked with David Bowie during his lifetime - or who were his contemporaries - pay tribute to the icon in their own words; recollecting what it was like to work in collaboration with a man whose fluid artistic genius repeatedly broke boundaries, right up until his death.
Alongside these individual tributes are 40 stunning illustrative and photographic portraits of Bowie throughout his career.
The contributing artists and photographers include: Edward Bell, Derek Boshier, Anton Corbijn, Kevin Cummins, Chuck Connelly, Chalkie Davies, Stephen Finer, Greg Gorman, Derry Moore, Terry O'Neill, Mick Rock, Masayoshi Sukita, George Underwood, Justin de Villeneuve and more.
These remarkable portraits are complemented by insightful, personal written pieces by his contemporaries; musicians and artists who worked closely with Bowie, including: Zachary Alford, Carlos Alomar, Toni Basil, Gail Ann Dorsey, Mike Garson, Dana Gillespie, Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, Cyndi Lauper, and Nile Rodgers, among others.
The book is curated and edited by Brian Hiatt, of Rolling Stone magazine.
