When David Bowie
passed away on 10 January 2016, the world lost a musical hero. But his
legacy lives on. While his sound and style evolved throughout his career
- from Ziggy to the Thin White Duke - two facts never changed: he was
an innovator; and photographers adored him. This book pays homage to
this ultimate icon.

“A must-have for all Bowie fans.” -- Departures International “You couldn’t take a bad picture of him,” Rock tells The Daily Beast. “I defy you to look through the book and find a picture you could call ‘bad.’ There aren’t any. He just had an awareness. It was evident early on—he understood the power of the picture.” -- The Daily Beast “The most beautiful photographs of the star in a single and beautiful book … a rich and splendid compilation…” -- Beware Magazine “… impressive … a splendid collection” -- Velvet Goldmine “Arguably the first musical artist to constantly reinvent himself through revising his image, Bowie proved to be as much a visual icon of the 70s, 80s and 90s as he was a musical innovator. Now, all that glam has been captured in a spectacular book.” -- Chris Jenkins, Arts & Collections magazine “Audacious, wide-ranging, and frankly gorgeous.” -- Flood Magazine “David Bowie’s image was as much a part of his art as was his music. In a luxurious new book, photographers including Terry O’Neill capture images of the rock icon.” - Chris Jenkins, Arts & Collections “…the power to charm...” -
