Title: MICK ROCK: THE RISE OF DAVID BOWIE, 1972-1973 - DELUXE ART EDITION NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY DAVID BOWIE AND MICK ROCK
Description: Koln, GERMANY, Benedikt Taschen Verlag., 2015, First Edition 1/1972. (ISBN: 3-8365-4905-0) Pictorial Boards, Folio, 310pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, French, and German. "In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" and unleashed his alter-ego: a glitter-clad, mascara-eyed, sexually-ambiguous persona who kicked down boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, fact and fiction. Together, Ziggy the album and Ziggy the stage spectacular propelled Bowie to stardom. A key passenger on this glam trip was photographer Mick Rock, who bonded with Bowie artistically and personally, immersed himself in the singer's inner circle, and, between 1972 and 1973, worked as Bowie's official photographer. This edition of 1972 numbered copies signed by David Bowie and Mick Rock brings together the best of Rock's Bowie portfolio of extraordinary stage shots as well as intimate backstage portraits, pictures for press, album jackets, and stills from promo movies - many published here for the first time. Featuring a lenticular front cover hologram, this lavish production rejoices in Bowie's experimentation and bursts with the energy of its unique star who defined, and defied, a generation". A brand new, pristine example of the 2015 first Taschen Art edition limited to one thousand, seven hundred and seventy-two deluxe copies NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED "Bowie '15" and "Mick Rock" in black ink on the colophon paged housed in the publisher's turquoise clamshell box still in the publisher's original cardboard shipping carton.
