SPEED OF LIFE, the 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, the authors have open 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.

Heroes, 1977, featured in Bowie and Sukita's 'Speed of Life'

David Bowie: '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.'
