David Bowie's 1980 album 'Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)' was a landmark release in his career, containing the big hits 'Ashes to Ashes' and 'Fashion' - but what if he'd written it as a series of novels instead of songs? This poster print imagines how things might have turned out - as a collection of vintage Penguin Books - if he'd picked up his pen instead of a microphone.
Each book in this print corresponds to a track on the album, arranged in the order they appear on the original vinyl release. They're all based on those wonderful classic Penguin and Pelican paperback books, and the books themselves have been specially chosen so that their colours echo those seen in the original album artwork.
The books, in track order, are: It's No Game (No. 1), Up The Hill Backwards, Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Ashes to Ashes, Fashion, Teenage Wildlife, Scream Like A Baby, Kingdom Come, Because You're Young, and It's No Game (No. 2).
