You can keep your Ziggy Stardust, by far the most interesting part of David Bowie’s career was his transition from glam rocker to soul boy and alien in the mid 70s – the period covered in the book From Station To Station: Travels With Bowie 1973 – 1976 by Geoff MacCormack.
MacCormack was an old school friend and band mate – and a man with unrivalled access to Bowie during that era. The book is packed with Geoff’s previously unseen photos, along with items of memorabilia including tour programmes, tickets and letters from his personal archives. All appear in this large format book (320mm x 240mm), bound by hand in Italy and housed in a presentation case. And all copies feature the title stamped in 22-carat gold on the spine as well as 22-carat gold page edging.
Yes, you just know it isn’t cheap. Just 2,000 worldwide, the ‘collector’s’ edition (numbers 351-2000) are autographed by the author and sell for £295. Want more? Well, 350 of the books are also signed by Bowie, feature a 10in x 8in lithographic print and are bound in full leather with the title plaque blind-embossed on the front cover.
The price of that? A whopping £425.
