BOOKS SHIP IN EARLY OCTOBER 2016
First Edition : $59.95. Hardcover, 11 x 13.5 x 0.8 inches, 160 pages.
Collectors Edition : $1,500. Hardcover, 11 x 13.5 inches, 160 pages. The Collector's Edition box (see photos below) is an exclusive work of art limited to just 100 numbered copies. Each box is hand made by artisan craftsmen in Chicago; the box itself is solid Birdseye maple with ebony splining and lined with luxurious black leather. The box lid is numbered and engraved with a precision laser. Once opened, the box lid and base convert into a simple, but elegant, coffee table display for the book. But the trick is opening the box...which is locked, but has no apparent keyhole. The only way to open it is by using the "key" - a separate piece of wood (carved by hand) with magnetic inlays that correspond to magnets hidden inside the lid. Simple, but complex, with a secret or two...much like Bowie himself.
Edition of Five : $5,000. Hardcover, 11 x 13.5 inches, 160 pages. The Edition of Five is a very exclusive edition of this collector's item limited to a total of 5 numbered copies. In addition to everything included in the Collector's Edition, the Edition of Five also has included on the title page of the book an original, and very rare, backstage pass from the Station to Station tour in 1976.
