David Bowie: Album by Album
Bowie: Album by Album examines every one of Bowie's studio albums in fine detail, right up to 2016's critically acclaimed Blackstar. Each album is placed within the context of the time in which it was recorded and all the albums' subsequent influence and legacy are charted. Also included is commentary from the musicians, engineers and producers who worked on the recordings - such as Brian Eno and Tony Visconti - and Bowie's own quotes provide a fascinating insight into his restlessly creative mind.
"Music book of the year" - The Independent "Features 200 striking images" - The Telegraph "Essential reading for the discerning Bowie fan" - Stylist "Delves deep into every one of David Bowie's albums, as well as featuring previously unpublished photographs of him." - NME
