About this Item

310pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, French, and German. "In 1972, David Bowie released his groundbreaking album "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" and unleashed his alter-ego: a glitter-clad, mascara-eyed, sexually-ambiguous persona who kicked down boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, fact and fiction. Together, Ziggy the album and Ziggy the stage spectacular propelled Bowie to stardom. A key passenger on this glam trip was photographer Mick Rock, who bonded with Bowie artistically and personally, immersed himself in the singer's inner circle, and, between 1972 and 1973, worked as Bowie's official photographer. This edition of 1972 numbered copies signed by David Bowie and Mick Rock brings together the best of Rock's Bowie portfolio of extraordinary stage shots as well as intimate backstage portraits, pictures for press, album jackets, and stills from promo movies - many published here for the first time. Featuring a lenticular front cover hologram, this lavish production rejoices in Bowie's experimentation and bursts with the energy of its unique star who defined, and defied, a generation". A brand new, pristine example of the 2015 first Taschen Art edition limited to one thousand, seven hundred and seventy-two deluxe copies NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED "Bowie '15" and "Mick Rock" in black ink on the colophon paged housed in the publisher's turquoise clamshell box still in the publisher's original cardboard shipping carton.

About this title

From the Publisher:

Nel 1972, David Bowie pubblicò il suo album rivoluzionario "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars". Con l'album faceva la sua apparizione anche Ziggy Stardust, l'alter-ego di Bowie: un personaggio sessualmente ambiguo, pieno di glitter, con il mascara alle ciglia, che abbatté il confine tra uomo e donna, etero e gay, realtà e finzione scenica in un fenomeno mutevole di autoespressione in puro stile anni '70. Insieme, l'album e lo spettacolo trasformarono il timido cantante londinese in una delle più grandi star internazionali. Un compagno fondamentale in questo viaggio glam nella stratosfera è stato il fotografo, anche lui londinese, Mick Rock. Rock legò con Bowie sia artisticamente sia personalmente, entrò nella cerchia privata del cantante e, tra il 1972 e il 1973, lavorò come fotografo ufficiale di Bowie. Questa edizione limitata e numerata raccoglie il meglio del portfolio di Rock dedicato a Bowie con spettacolari fotografie di scena e intimi ritratti nel backstage.
