About Hunky Dory

Published in 2007, this limited edition David Bowie album art print returns to the original quality of the artwork, allowing us to view a familiar image with fresh eyes. David Bowie's legendary 1970s album covers for Hunky Dory and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, were both designed by Norfolk-based illustrator, Terry Pastor. Ziggy Stardust propelled the flamboyant Bowie to fame in the early 1970s and marked a turning point for Pastor, but it was Hunky Dory on which the artist first impressed the musician. Having left school aged 15 to work as a commercial artist, it was losing his job in a studio in Fleet Street that landed Pastor the work on the Hunky Dory album. “I was sacked from the art studio in 1964 basically for having long hair and looking like a Rolling Stones clone,” he said. The Hunky Dory cover began with a black-and-white photograph, the style which was influenced by a Marlene Dietrich photo book that the 24 year old Bowie took with him to the shoot, telling photographer Brian Wood, “this is how I want to look”. The resulting photograph, a perfect metaphor for this album's visionary blend of gay camp, flashy rock guitar and saloon-piano balladry (Rolling Stone, 12/11/03), was allegedly taken during one of Bowie’s cigarette breaks. It was lifted to its position among the greats of album cover art when it was handed to Pastor, who applied colour using photo-dyes with a DeVilbiss Super 93 airbrush. Bowie was so pleased he commissioned the Ziggy Stardust cover using the same techniques. This is a very special print, beautifully made and flamboyantly countersigned by David Bowie himself.
