'This is a book of extraordinary photographs. Ziggy Stardust blazed briefly but intensely, and I am delighted to see his life and times as a rock'n'roll star immortalised in this beautiful limited edition.' – David Bowie
Published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Ziggy Stardust LP's original release, Moonage Daydream: The Life and Times of Ziggy Stardust is a collaboration between David Bowie and photographer Mick Rock, and the first and ultimate authorised piece of Ziggy Stardust legend.
David Bowie's sharp, often humorous text discusses the origins of this fascinating stage persona, comments on Mick Rock's photographs, and overall gives unprecedented insight into Ziggy's stratospheric two-year career.

'An extravagant coffee-table book that collects Mick Rock's photographs of the chameleon rock star as Ziggy Stardust ... there is more than enough for both the casual Bowie fan and the obsessive.' – The Observer
'The closest we'll ever get to a straight-up Bowie autobiography – but who'd ever want anything straight-up from Bowie?' – Rolling Stone
