ABOUT THIS SITE
BOWIEGOLDENYEARS began life in 2000 as both a tribute to a triumphant period (1974-80) in David Bowie's career and a design experiment, at a time when the internet was not yet bursting with Bowie tribute sites.
BOWIEGOLDENYEARS was cited as 'superb' by David Bowie's website, and in 2010 The Guardian named it Site Of The Week. This led to an invitation from Omnibus Press to create a large format fully illustrated book based on the site, expanded to include the years 1970 to 1980.
In December 2016 David Bowie The Golden Years was published internationally by Omnibus and a Japanese language version published by Shinko Music.
Since the book's completion I have been overhauling the entire site and will be releasing pages as they are completed. Stay tuned here and at the book's Facebook page for news and updates.
These are some of the excellent sites and books that were an invaluable reference source for both BOWIEGOLDENYEARS and the book.
