Photo album The Rise of David Bowie, Taschen
Balacron Kashmir and bright turquoise give this unique photo book the cover and box that it merits: striking and outgoing, yet refined and luxurious.
The Rise of David Bowie 1972 -1973 is a stunning photo book by Taschen publishers compiled by his photographer Mick Rock. It's an ode to a world star. And that also applies to the box and the cover of the book. Striking and extrovert, but also luxurious and refined. The secret behind the finished effect is a combination of blind printing and screenprint, using Balacron Kashmir and dramatic turquoise. Here's a colour with a deeper meaning as it references the make up colours used by David Bowie at that time.
