But don't forget your date with me...
As I confirmed on the MBs yesterday, there is going to be an official 2005 David Bowie calendar featuring twelve of Mick Rock's beautiful shots covering the two ends of a thirty-year spectrum...that's the very stylish cover above.
We are very pleased to be able to offer the calendar exclusively for a three-week pre-sale through BowieNet, before it will be made available generally. It will also be cheaper via BowieNet, at a cost of $12 plus $3 p&p which includes shipping to anywhere in the world...as opposed to an $18 price tag when it goes on general sale... I make that a thirty three per cent discount, generous by anyone's standards.
As if this wasn't enough, a signed edition will also be made available (exclusively to BowieNet) for the astonishingly low price of $45. This edition will be signed by both Mick Rock and David Bowie and will be strictly limited to just 100 copies for members only.
Both versions will go on sale at 8:00pm UK time on Saturday evening...a time when most members are not at work or at least most are awake. This is the fairest time for the signed calendars to go on sale as they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Above is a montage of the shots being utilised, a couple of which I believe are unpublished. This is just to give you a vague idea of the content, even though the montage really doesn't do the calendar justice at all. Please bear in mind that I've used cropped versions of most of the pictures which appear full-length in the calendar proper.
Oh, I almost forgot. There will be a BowieNet members competition for five copies of the signed version that I'll be running from tomorrow... It's all good stuff, kidz.
