David Bowie 'Aladdin Sane' Album As Penguin Books Poster Print
What if David Bowie had turned author in the early 1970s and released his album 'Aladdin Sane' as a series of novels instead of an album as songs? This print imagines what such a collection might have looked like.
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 book designs, and the colours of the books echo those of the original album artwork - right down to the red and blue lightning flash across Bowie's face.
The books, in track order, are: Watch That Man, Aladdin Sane (1913-1938-197?), Drive-In Saturday, Panic in Detroit, Cracked Actor, Time, The Prettiest Star, Let's Spend the Night Together, The Jean Genie, and Lady Grinning Soul.
