When relative newcomer, David Bowie, released his now-classic album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars landed in 1972, the world hadn’t seen anything quite like it – or Bowie’s larger-than-life alter ego, Ziggy Stardust. Ziggy’s glittery makeup and wild behaviour shocked the establishment to its core - and swept Bowie to fame in the process.

Joining Bowie on his ride into the stratosphere was fellow Londoner, Mick Rock. As Bowie’s star rose, Rock immersed himself in the singer’s world, becoming his official photographer.

Loaded with images from the iconic to the never-before-seen from Bowie’s career between 1972 and 1973, The Rise of David Bowie captures every side of David Bowie. Compiled in 2015 with Bowie’s permission and blessing, this book chronicles the beginning of an amazing career, as well as a lifelong friendship.

The Rise of David Bowie features:
  • Hardcover, 300 pages.
  • Photography by Mick Rock, David Bowie’s official photographer.
  • Amazing lenticular cover changes as it moves, showing different headshots.
  • Around half the images in The Rise of David Bowie have never been published before.

Dimensions: 38 x 27.5 x 3.5cm.
