Rate this:
"In 1967, a twenty-year-old David Bowie asked Gerald Fearnley, a bandmate's brother, to shoot the cover images for his first album. The self-titled LP, released on 1 June 1967 - the same day as The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - failed to chart. But Bowie's time would come, and Gerald Fearnley's portraits of the artist as a young man, published here in their entirety for the first time, offer a unique glimpse of an icon in the making."-- Book cover jacket

The title of this book is accurate because for the most part Bowie remains unseen. Photos look like they were taken from one or two photo shoots, the entire book is just multiple versions of three or four images.

A good book for someone who's never seen a photo of Bowie. Everyone else, don't waste your time.
