Alone on a mean street...
David Bowie's iconic 1972 The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars album cover has been reproduced as a limited edition art print (in an edition of 195) by UK based company,
The 28" x 27" print has the official seal of approval, and has been signed and numbered in pencil by both David Bowie and Terry Pastor of Main Artery, (seen signing the prints below) the original artist who hand-tinted Brian Ward's famous photograph for the sleeve.
This beautiful edition was painstakingly reproduced from the original artwork and has been screen printed with the Ziggy Stardust type omitted, as the examples shown here.
The actual image area size is 19" x 19", within an overall paper size of 28" x 27", (as the scaled down version below) and the paper it's printed on is 330 gsm Somerset Velvet enhanced.
Update: When I posted this news item on Wednesday evening, we were still working on getting a discount for BowieNetters. The print is retailing at Ã‚Â£750 GBP (approx. $1,393 USD) to other folk, but BowieNetters will now receive a very generous 15 per cent discount, a reduction of Ã‚Â£112.50! (approx. $210 USD)
You can order your print now by clicking on any of the above images and entering the code: BOWIENET1. This discount will be available for a limited time, and as the edition sells the price will steadily increase. This discount will not be available elsewhere.
As I'm sure you know, these kind of art prints are always a valuable investment. Anybody who purchased the lithograph of David's 1977 painting, Child In Berlin, will have no doubt been delighted by the steady rise in its value.
Stay tuned for that contest to win an Artist's Proof of Ziggy Stardust.
