Genesis celebrated the UK release of our Bowie and Sukita collaboration SPEED OF LIFE with a media book launch at The Arts Club, London, on Tuesday, 8th May. Over 140 members of the press attended, headed by Condé Nast President Nicholas Coleridge, who spoke of his lifelong fascination with David Bowie.
'I don't think I've enjoyed a new Bowie book for years quite
as much as SPEED OF LIFE. Everything
about it- the Sukita photographs themselves, the production values, the velvet
shoe bag the book arrives in, the Bowie autograph on the frontispiece...all adds
up to something amazing, to be treasured. An heirloom in fact. I don't actually
know what it costs, I expect the same price as a small car. And you know what?
It's worth it.' - Nicholas Coleridge, President of Condé Nast International
In his speech, company director Nick Roylance thanked the authors that have worked with Genesis over our 40-year history, including Jimmy Page, Geoff MacCormack, Aninha Capaldi and Ross Halfin, who were all present at the event. Gary Kemp and Alex Zane also joined the mix of Bowie's friends and fans in toasting our newest publication.
As well as SPEED OF LIFE and a range of our classic titles, a prototype of upcoming Lou Reed limited edition TRANSFORMER was available for guests to view. Click here to register your interest in this title.
Since 1974 Genesis has created signed limited edition books on behalf of authors and artists ranging from the Beatles to Buckingham Palace.
