"I'm a real self-educated kind of guy. I read voraciously. Every book I ever bought, I have. I can't throw it away. It's physically impossible to leave my hand! Some of them are in warehouses. I've got a library that I keep the ones I really really like." - David Bowie
Alongside his immense cultural significance as a musician and pop icon, David Bowie was also an avid reader. Books were another thing that he soaked up like a sponge in an endless quest for knowledge and inspiration.
This print is a tribute to David Bowie’s huge thirst for knowledge. Whatever your interest, be it novels, the occult or music, you’ll find plenty here to inspire you to explore further.
