Book and Three Fine Art Prints / David Bowie / Aladdin Sane 50 Years Special Edition Box Set / Duffy
On the 19 of April 1973, the Aladdin Sane album was released to critical acclaim. The music speaks for itself but rarely has a portrait on an album cover become the definitive image of one man. Rarely has an image become known as a cultural icon (as quoted by the V&A) or popularly known as the ‘Mona Lisa of Pop’.For the 50th anniversary, this book is written in celebration of this iconic image of David Bowie. This image is still controversial, fresh, challenging, beautiful and ethereal. One never tires of its simplicity and boldness.
The book contains previously unseen photographs from the iconic Aladdin Sane cover shoot which have never been seen anywhere before now. Alongside Duffy’s incredible photographs are essays on Bowie’s remarkable album and the story behind the famous cover itself. Edited by Chris Duffy and includes essays by renowned writers and Bowie experts Paul Morley, Charles Shaar Murray, Nicholas Pegg, Kevin Cann, Jérôme Soligny and Geoffrey Marsh - curator of the V&A’s record-breaking David Bowie Is exhibition.
The book is designed by long-time Bowie collaborators Barnbrook creative studio, the book pays tribute to a seminal album and an image that will live forever more in rock ‘n’ roll history.
