Mick Rock's David Bowie Photo Book 'The Rise of David Bowie' on Sale From Amoeba

Posted by Billy Gil, October 21, 2015 06:55pm | Post a Comment

david bowie photo book taschen mick rockMick Rock’s massive tome of a photo book on David Bowie is now for sale at Amoeba Music.

The tall,16-pound book features a hologram cover and more than 300 pages of photographs. It's limited to only 1,972 copies, signed by Rock and Bowie. Look for the book in the display case next to the counters at Amoeba Hollywood!

Rock famously shot many musicians during the 1970s, from Lou Reed to Queen and Blondie’s Debbie Harry. Between 1972 and 1973, Rock was Bowie’s official photographer, while Bowie was taking the world by storm with his celebrated album Hunky Dory and his emerging Ziggy Stardust persona.

The book includes pictures for press and album jackets along with intimate backstage photos, around 50 percent of which are said to be unseen by the public.

The book sale coincides with the exhibition “Mick Rock: Shooting for Stardust. The Rise of David Bowie & Co.” at TASCHEN Gallery, which is located at 8070 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. The exhibit runs through Oct. 30.

Read an interview with Rock about his time photographing Bowie via Rolling Stone. See a couple of photos from the book below. Shop more collectible books from Amoeba here.
