Beautiful Bowie

I grew up with a Father obsessed with David Bowie so I guess you could say he has always been a part of my life in some form or another.

A few weeks ago Bloomsbury got in touch about a soon to be released book all about the man and his style and I jumped at the chance for a sneak preview! As you can see from the above (poorly shot) photos, this isn’t just a book of pretty pictures. It’s goes pretty in-depth about the style of David Bowie and covers his career over five decades.

Bloomsbury say:

“Rare images of the ever changing styles and fashion phases of David Bowie have been put together by Danny Lewis in a brilliant new retrospective; David Bowie Style.

Published on the 25th October, David Bowie Style documents Bowie’s career over 5 decades, and essays by Danny Lewis discuss how fashion and costume influenced Bowie’s music and performances”
 I Say:

This is a must have for any fan of David Bowie or those interested in fashion and music. A man of eclectic tastes and many personas this is a fascinating book and looks great on the coffee table too. My Dad, a hard to impress man swiftly laid claim to my copy and had I not have been sent a sample this would have made the perfect gift for him!

The book, published by Bloomsbury will be released for sale on October 25th priced at £18.99

So, what do we think? Any Bowie lovers out there? Will you be seeking out this book either for yourself or as a gift? (I would if I were you!)
