Description

    David Bowie Speed of Life Signed Limited Edition (#1132/2000) Hardcover Book Born out of a 40-year collaboration between musician, actor and producer, David Bowie, and photographer and designer, Masayoshi Sukita, Speed of Life is a signed limited edition (#1132/2000) book that has been hand-bound in a fine-grain leather onto a cloth cover selected by David Bowie. It is presented in a hand-made slipcase, bound in black buckram, featuring pink, silver, and turquoise foils and leather accents. "The authors have opened up Sukita's archives to assemble a 300-page photo essay which, captioned with their own recollections and memories, traces the development of Bowie's remarkable career from 1972 to the present day. David Bowie: 'It's very hard for me to accept that Sukita-san has been snapping away at me since 1972 but that really is the case... May he click into eternity." Here, together on a 7" single, are parts 1 and 2 of his 1980 track "It's No Game," presented as a collector's photographic picture disc. The books has been signed by both David Bowie and Masayoshi Sukita. In Excellent condition.
