Unmade Up: Recollections of a Friendship with David Bowie

product image
The death of rock star David Bowie in 2016 continues to leave the music world and the hearts of his numerous fans with a dark void. To many, Bowie was a larger-than-life celebrity who seemed beyond mortality. And indeed, his legacy and influence thrives, and interest in all things Bowie has only grown in his afterlife.

In the 1980s, British artist Edward Bell worked closely with Bowie and provided the artwork for the album covers of Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) and Tin Machine II. Bowie later purchased all of Bell's art for his private collection. In Unmade Up he offers an intimate look at their friendship and the art at the center of it.

Lushly illustrated in color throughout, Unmade Up includes original artwork and photographs, many of which have never been published. It is a fantastic celebration of Bowie's unique style and vision, and it will be an essential book for every Bowie fan.
