London’s National Theatre loves David Bowie – singer, musician, actor, writer, fashion icon – and their Bowie inspired products have proved incredibly popular, and the organisation reckons they’d make for perfect Father’s Day presents.
The bestselling Ziggy tea towel (one in a range of similar items), a “Wedgie” Bowie door stop and the Pocket Bowie Wisdom book, are all available now from the National Theatre online store and shop.
Genre-hopping, gender-bending: Bowie was never been afraid to push the boundaries. Whether masquerading as an alien, a spaceman or a goblin king, this rock ‘n’ roll hero was a true visionary. The death of the Man Who Fell to Earth shook fans around the world, but his influence lives on.
Pocket Bowie Wisdom is full of insights into music, identity, fame, love and creativity from one of the most pioneering musicians of all time. A collection of quotes makes a perfect gift for the Bowie fan in your life!
