You'll love this because...
The life, times and death of David Bowie are recounted, all together in one book.
Personalise the cover with any Name
Featuring stunning pictorial sections from David Bowie’s life
Presented in a premium handbound embossed cover
Book made from newspaper headlines from 1971 onwards
The edition is tabloid size (31 x 38cm) and comes with a free premium gift box
Given the nature of his alter ego, the otherworldly Ziggy Stardust, it is fitting that the tabloid interest in David Bowie has always been stratospheric. One of the biggest stars of the 1970’s and 80’s, Bowie commanded column inches on account of far more than just the 140 million albums he sold, as his eccentric dress sense, sexuality and general personality provided years of intrigue and debate amongst public and press alike. The David Bowie life book takes you on a journey through the life and career of a musical icon, in the form of both newspaper clippings and stunning pictorials.
The David Bowie life book is presented in a hard-bound black leather cover, and comes with a free premium gift box. Personalise your book with a name and message to make this the perfect present for any David Bowie fan.
How To Personalise Your David Bowie Book
Personalise your book with the recipient’s name, which will be embossed onto the cover. Also add a special message to feature on the title page inside the book.
When entering your personalisation, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

Upon purchasing the Bowie tribute book i was a bit dubious about the content, but upon receiving the book i can only say my pessimism was unfounded. Packaging was excellent and the book arrived in first class condition, i was also impressed with the content and feel it should be a must for every Bowie fan.

The contents consists of reproductions of newspaper pages from years gone by. They are very interesting to look at and nicely presented. Any Bowie fan would enjoy this greatly. The only complaint is the cost - this looks like it could have been done for half the price. So, if the cost isn't a major factor for you, I highly recommend the book.

Dinosaur book review
Really pleased with the personalised dinosaur book I had for my 1yr old neighbour! It’s so colourful and having his name everywhere possible is absolutely brilliant. I’m sure he will love it for many years to come.

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren…
I bought 2 books for my grandchildren which I am delighted with. I love the personalisation of them. I knew they were going to be personalised but not to the extent that they were with their names on every page. The quality of the books is great as well. Each page is a lovely quality and hopefully childproof!! I received them very quickly in the post as well. I had both of them within 10 days and that included Easter and a weekend. Many thanks

Nice product but too late
The product is nice but the book arrived several days after the last delivery date it was supposed to (and without an apology or warning), so I missed occasion, despite having ordered it in plenty of time.

Great book for a football fanatic!!
I love this book I've bought for my husband's 60th later this year who is Newcastle United mad!!!! My only criticism would be that when I placed my order and wrote what I wanted printed I tried to place it so it would be central, but, when it came one of the lines wasn't, thankfully it still looks ok but as a company I thought you would of automatically centralised the printing especially for the price! I bought the most expensive one saying as it's for a special birthday. Good quick service and well packaged though.
