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.

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.

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged
There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.

Wonderful book for my great nephew
Wonderful book for my great nephew, he will be delighted with it. I have purchased personalised books from you previously, and have always been delighted with the quality of these books. Thankyou!

The book itself is an amazing gift but I thought the name would automatically be printed on the front of the book. I didn't realise you had to pay extra. Instead my message had been printed onto a square of paper and glued onto the page inside the book. Bit tacky!!

I thought there would be a delay…
I thought there would be a delay getting my book to Australia due to the pandemic. But there wasn’t! From the moment I purchased my item the process was prompt and seamless

Our grand-daughter was delighted!
Delivered ahead of schedule which was excellent. The book is well produced, colourful and entertaining and our grand-daughter loved seeing her name repeatedly included in the story.
