EXHIBITION/BOOK - david bowie is...

i recently visited the 'david bowie is' exhibition at the V&A in london and picked up a few souvenirs in the bowie shop. i bought this 'ziggy stardust' poster by mike joyce (above) and then wanted to know a bit more about it him. i found out that mike has published a whole book of his reimagined concert posters called 'swissted'. the bowie show has certainly raised the bar in how an exhibtion can be presented with its fusion of art, graphics, music and fashion. i know im biased but it really is brilliant and includes a gigantic screen around three storeys high showing fab vintage concert footage.  the show is in london until august and is then rumoured to be touring the world.
anyone who loves graphic design will enjoy this large swissted poster book (below) available on amazon uk or amazon usa.
