Chameleonic, hypnotising and utterly irreplaceable, David Bowie was more than just a pop star. More underdog than diamond dog, he was an inspiration to millions: a hot tramp from the streets of London, who proved that anything’s possible when you follow your dreams. Whether posing as an electrifying alien rock god or a thin white duke, Bowie’s career is a veritable kaleidoscope of ever-changing colors, styles and sounds. From Aladdin Sane to Ziggy Stardust, from Goblin King to China boy, from sharp-suited aristocrat to androgynous bohemian Queen, Starman collects black-and-white sketches of his most iconic looks, stardusted visions and stylistic moments. Filled with quotes, facts and memories of Bowie from those who knew him best, David Bowie: Starman offers a uniquely creative way to remember the Starman and his incredible life on Earth - essential reading for fans of every generation.

In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply personal story of their relationship and offers a singular perspective on the music icon and their world together: from their unconventional meeting backstage at a concert (and the long-distance romance that followed), to their fairy-tale wedding (and their groundbreaking artistic partnership), to the devastating losses that ultimately dissolved their romantic relationship for good. Throughout it all, they shared a bond more intimate than any other in Prince's life. No one else can tell this story or can provide a deeper, more nuanced portrait of Prince--both the famously private man and the pioneering, beloved artist--than Mayte, his partner during some of the most pivotal personal and professional years of his career. The Most Beautiful is a book that will be returned to for decades, as Prince's music lives on with generations to come.

A unique and kaleidoscopic look into the life, legacy, and electricity of the pop legend Prince and his wideranging impact on our culture Ben Greenman, New York Times bestselling author, contributing writer to the New Yorker, and owner of thousands of recordings of Prince and Prince-related songs, knows intimately that there has never been a rock star as vibrant, mercurial, willfully contrary, experimental, or prolific as Prince. Uniting a diverse audience while remaining singularly himself, Prince was a tireless artist, a musical virtuoso and chameleon, and a pop-culture prophet who shattered traditional ideas of race and gender, rewrote the rules of identity, and redefined the role of sex in pop music. A polymath in his own right who collaborated with George Clinton and Questlove on their celebrated memoirs, Greenman has been listening to and writing about Prince since the mid-eighties. Here, with the passion of an obsessive fan and the skills of a critic, journalist, and novelist, he mines his encyclopedic knowledge of Prince’s music to tell both his story and the story of the paradigm-shifting ideas that he communicated to his millions of fans around the world. Greenman's take on Prince is the autobiography of a generation and its ideas. Asking a series of questions—not only “Who was Prince?” but “Who wasn’t he?” and “Who are we?”—Dig if You Will the Picture is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary talent.

Despite being one of the most influential and experimental pop-artists of our time, Prince was a figure shrouded in mystery, a shy, awkward man, his interviews almost willfully unrevealing, so little was known of his personal life. From the beginning, Prince knew exactly what he was doing and set the pattern for the rest of his career. Feisty and opinionated, Prince refused to compromise his artistic vision, producing all of his own albums from the age of 17, and pioneering change in the music industry. Prince advocated breaking down boundaries and stepping out of the mold, adopting different personae to give himself greater freedom with his music and championing sexual fluidity and equality. After his untimely death on April 21st 2016, Prince was at the forefront of the public’s interest. His albums shot to the top of the international charts and the world’s landmarks were lit up in purple as countless fans mourned his loss. Detailing some of the lesser known facts about his life,Prince: Purple Rain: A Coloring Book illustrates Prince’s most memorable looks. So much more than just a coloring book, each image has a history, with quotes from Prince and the people who knew and worked with him. This unique volume gives fans the opportunity to pay their own tribute, and raise their purple pencils in memory of the legendary performer that was Prince.
