Waterstones Says

A luxurious 20th anniversary edition of David Bowie’s Moonage Daydream, complete with the kaleidoscopic photography of Mick Rock, this incredible volume is published in new larger, uncut format, which allows for the authors’ original vision to reach the reader in its full glory.

In 2002, David Bowie and Mick Rock created Moonage Daydream, the defining document of the life and times of Ziggy Stardust. Twenty years later, it remains the closest readers will get to understanding Bowie through his own words.

Alongside over 600 photographs taken by Mick Rock, Bowie's personal and often humorous commentary gives unprecedented insight into his work and the creation of his most memorable persona. Readers can see how Bowie singlehandedly challenged and elevated 1970s culture through his style, his inspirations ranging from Kubrick to Kabuki, and his creative spirit, which endures through the decades. Moonage Daydream is the essential David Bowie book.

First published as a signed limited edition, Moonage Daydream sold out in a matter of months and became lore among David Bowie fans. Now, on the 50th anniversary of Bowie's acclaimed album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, the book is available again. Published in a new larger format, this uncut edition keeps to Bowie and Rock's original vision, allowing us to explore Moonage Daydream the way the authors intended.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It's a massive coffee-table art book, with lavish images of Bowie in the Seventies from photographer Mick Rock. But the main attraction of Moonage Daydream is the text by the man himself. He's in top form, whether he's shopping for shoes with Cyrinda Foxe (who teaches him to wear "palm-tree'd fuck-me pumps") or sipping tea with Elton John ("We didn't exactly become pals, not really having that much in common, especially musically"), or partying it up with Mick Jagger ("I have absolutely no recollections of this party at all"). The closest this world will ever get to a straight-up Bowie autobiography - but who'd ever want anything straight-up from Bowie?' - Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

'There is more than enough for both the casual Bowie fan and the obsessive. These photographs trace the birth of one of the biggest, most influential pop ideas ever: the notion that a pop performer could, on record as well as on stage, reinvent himself creatively by inhabiting various personas.' - Sean O'Hagan, The Guardian

'This is a book of extraordinary photographs. Ziggy Stardust blazed briefly but intensely, and I am delighted to see his life and times as a rock'n'roll star immortalised in this book.' - David Bowie
