Sitting comfortably? OK. We've been dying to tell you about this one for what seems like an age, and now we've finally ironed out the finer points, we can. As many of you already know, UK company Showcase Editions have made available a limited edition signed Mick Rock print of David as Ziggy from Earl's Court in May 1973. Well, now they have produced a stunning limited hardback edition of Blood and Glitter that comes in a cloth-bound slipcase, and a very limited edition of only 100 copies of aforementioned print, signed by both Mick AND David!
This is the first time David has co-signed something of this nature, and ninety copies of this edition will be made available to BowieNet members only. Members can reserve a copy of this print on a first-come-first-served basis from 23:00 (11:00pm, GMT) tomorrow (Tuesday 29th May). Look out for further details of how to reserve your copy and a competition to win a copy of the Ã‚Â£215 set from the list below at 12:00 (GMT) midday tomorrow.
Here's the full breakdown of the various permutations with prices for the UK, please read carefully before ordering from Showcase Editions. We are merely announcing the fact that these editions are available, as they will not be available for sale via BowieNet.
