David Bowie Releases 'Speed Of Life' Photo Book
'Speed Of Life' is the new publication born out of a 40-year collaboration between musician, actor and producer, David Bowie, and photographer and designer, Masayoshi Sukita.

In their fine bound edition, Bowie and Sukita 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.



Commenting on the publication, David Bowie said "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."



With an official publication date set for this month (May 2012), 'Speed Of Life' celebrates Ziggy Stardust's 40th anniversary and ten years since the publishers, Genesis, released their first collaboration with Bowie. That edition (Moonage Daydream, 2002) is sold out with Deluxe copies often listed at auction with estimates in excess of £2,000.



Speed Of Life is the first book ever to present an extensive visual account of David Bowie's ongoing relationship with Japan and its influence on his work. Both authors' words are written in English and Japanese.



The edition is strictly limited to 2,000 copies available via www.genesis-publications.com and each copy of the limited edition is individually signed by Bowie and Sukita. A specially created record pressing is also included. Here, for the first time together on a 7" vinyl single, are parts 1 and 2 of David Bowie's 1980 recording, 'It's No Game'.



The limited edition is printed onto heavyweight matt art paper and quarter hand-bound in a bespoke-dyed calfskin leather, onto a turquoise cloth cover as personally selected by David Bowie.
