Featuring 30 stardusted illustrations, David Bowie: Starman: A Colouring Bookoffers a uniquely creative way to remember David Bowie, the daring, chameleonic icon who changed popular music forever.

Hypnotic and utterly irreplaceable, David Bowie was more than just a rock star. Gifted with cosmic soul and an imagination that stretched as far as the galaxy, he was an inspiration to millions.

Whether posing as Ziggy Stardust or Aladdin Sane, Goblin King or China Boy, Thin White Duke or huge-hearted hero, Bowie's career is a kaleidoscope of ever-changing colours, styles and sounds. Leaving an indelible bolt-shaped imprint upon the worlds of fashion, music and popular culture, his daring transformations changed our perception of everything it can mean to be a star. Featuring iconic looks from every phase of his fashion evolution, David Bowie: Starman: A Colouring Book captures his most entrancing earthly personas in illustrated form. Peppered with quotes, facts and memories of Bowie from those who knew him best, it offers a uniquely creative way to remember the Starman and his incredible life on Earth. Essential reading for fans of every generation.


There was no denying that David Bowie was a legend and depending on when you grew up, you may have your own favourite era of Bowie.

As a child of the 80's, my Bowie is Dancing in the Streets with Jagger and dancing with Aborigines in Let's Dance.

This new colouring book not only shows him in all of his iconic poses it also shares a little insight in to the Thin White Duke.


Each illustration is accompanied by quotes and info about David following his illustrious career, there are 30 pictures ranging from Ziggy Stardust to Labyrinth to my Dancing in the Street era Bowie.



As for the paper, I always prefer to use gel pens and it is perfect for them and of course pencils will also give a great result but like all books of this nature maybe do a test on an inconspicuous area before hand.

This is a nice book and a fitting tribute to Bowie, a great present for any Bowie fan.

Thanks to Plexus for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

  1. That book looks really fun. Would much rather color something with his face then a bunch of flowers.
