David Bowie is having quite a good 2013. And having recently discovered his scene in the 1981 German junkie film Christiane F. we're as obsessed as ever. We’re not alone. British designer Blam (AKA Mark Blamire) takes that OCD admiration to epic proportions with the "Changing Faces of Bowie Print" (2013). An array of 101 type styles, logos and symbols inspired by the former David Jones screen-printed onto 240gsm Mirri rainbow holographic paper, this 500x500 limited release print showcases the work of some very reputable artists, designers, and publications who are just as clearly enamoured of the legendary rocker. Pentagram, Stockholm Design Lab, Crispin Finn, Monocle, and Wallpaper are among the contributors. The print has been created exclusively for the David Bowie Is exhibition at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum which opens March 23. 

"The Changing Faces of Bowie Print" is available for pre-order for £45 at vandashop.com.

David Bowie's second single from his forthcoming album The Next Day is "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)." Bowie, as we might expect, takes it the extra mile in concept and visuals, turning the video for the tune into a short film featuring Tilda Swinton (as a suburban housewife) and directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways), commenting on the nature of celebrity itself.
