David Bowie Is... Personal Portfolio

As the Victoria and Albert Museum’s spectacular retrospective of David Bowie’s career continues its international tour, we are delighted to present five previously unseen prints in this newly curated Personal Portfolio of the exhibition’s acclaimed catalogue.


Chosen by the David Bowie Archive, the prints include a photograph taken in Berlin (signed by David Bowie), a painting by Bowie generously lent for photography by a private collector, early album artwork, an installation drawing design and a Kirlian electrophotograph. Once again, we have been delighted to collaborate with the Barnbrook studio – producing each print to specifications tailored to the subject matter.


There are only 1,000 copies of the Personal Portfolio, Black Edition. Each portfolio is hand-numbered and sealed in a black presentation case.
