This pair of limited edition David Bowie album art prints comes from the The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars photo session. 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. Published by Terry Pastor himself, this pair of prints, K. West and Phone Booth, have been re-mastered and re-coloured as closely as possible to the original Ziggy Stardust image that he created in the 1970s. For this most iconic of David Bowie covers, a Brian Ward photograph was transformed into the classic highly coloured cover by Terry Pastor that contributed to the Ziggy Stardust enigma. The black and white cover photograph was taken outside furriers, K. West, on London's trendy Heddon St., London, W1. The rear cover of the original vinyl album bore the instruction "TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME". The photograph was then passed to Pastor, who had worked on Hunky Dory previously, for hand colouring. Pastor recalls "I was working on the back cover one evening at my studio, which at the time was in Covent Garden, London when I received a phone call from David asking how the cover art was going. I told him I had finished the front and was working on the back cover photograph. He was very excited hearing that, having no idea there was an image for the back cover. He asked me what the image was, and said that he was really looking forward to seeing it. From that you can assume David didn't have any real input into the art direction at this stage of the cover. He probably had much more input when the photograph was being shot. The back cover, featuring Bowie in a phone box was done in exactly the same way.” These prints are only available from Hypergallery as a pair.
