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

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.

Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

BoroMitch Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

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.

dragpeace Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 Aug 2018

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.

Disney Princesses tales of bravery…

The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',. Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.

Adam Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 May 2020

Not interested in full customer satisfaction

Uploading a photo on the inset of the book was one the features that made me purchase the book, but this did not upload as I found out when the book came through late! Slightly disappointed they didn’t offer a reprint as a goodwill gesture for full customer satisfaction. The book was one of a number of presents for a 5 year old. So seeing her pic on the book would have made all the difference

Purchased as a gift

Purchased as a gift. Delivered earlier than expected, it turned out to be an awesome addition to a true baseball fan’s collection. Embossing was perfect, book was exactly what we expected.
