Product Description:

A richly illustrated 160-page chronicle of pop's greatest exponent of style. This visual examination of a celebrated multi-faceted career documents the impact of David Bowie on twentieth-century fashion and culture brilliantly capturing his spatial odyssey from dedicated follower to supreme arbiter of rock chic. As the book says 'Bowie's 'style' has always amounted to more than clothes hair and cosmetics. Style for Bowie is inextricable from is less a flight from reality than an entire way of life.' The range of photographs is staggering. From his humble Brixton beginnings to the classy pop icon in the last quarter of the old millennium (every year from 1962 to 1999 is amply represented) the book shows a changing glamour gallery of Bowies down the years all different and yet somehow all unified by an unerring grasp of Style with a capital S. Whether it's on-stage with The King Bees in the Sixties off-stage at Haddon Hall in the Seventies on-stage (again) with Iggy Pop in the Eighties or back-stage with Morrissey in the Nineties Steve Pafford editor of the UK's 'Crankin' Out' Bowie fan club magazine (PO Box 3268 London NW6 4NH) has unearthed some fascinating pix. There are close to 500 images in BowieStyle an all-time high and around 40% are guaranteed previously unseen. There's also an exclusive two-page interview with photographer Mick Rock contributions from ex-manager Ken Pitt as well as previously unpublished extracts of Crankin' Out's interviews with collaborator Tony Visconti clothes designer Natasha Kornilof and Manish Boy Bob Solly. The informed incisive text and picture captions are also littered with quotes from David himself compiled from various media interviews conducted over the years as well as his chats with Crankin' Out which appear in print for the very first time.
