'The Rise of David Bowie 1972-1973' 

Signed by Bowie and all

If you're a lover of art, music and general fabulousness, you probably took the news of David Bowie's Jan. 10 death pretty hard. At 69, the icon of song and style was still every bit as groundbreaking as he was in his 1970s heyday—he even released a new album, Blackstar (ISO Records), on his birthday, Jan. 8, 2016.

Bowie's passing will inspire no shortage of memorials and reminiscences, magazine think pieces and retrospective biographies. The definitive piece of Bowie-alia, however, is already out there: the gloriously appointed, limited edition, 310-page book filled with photos by Mick Rock, Ziggy Stardust's official photographer 1972-1973.

Limited to a run of 1,972 numbered copies and signed by both Bowie and Rock, The Rise of David Bowie 1972-1973 (Taschen, 2015) features stage shots, backstage portraits, press photos, album jackets, stills from promo movies and as many as 50 never-before-seen images.

Bound with a hologram cover and encased in a turquoise-colored clamshell, The Rise will be available for purchase in February for $2,500. The price tag is steep, but that's true to form: Bowie never did anything halfway and if you're a superfan, it's a small price to pay for a piece of his legendary life.
