A reworking of the David Bowie poster originally produced for the
UK? OK!! exhibition at Parco Factory, Tokyo. This edition was produced as a silkscreen printed two-poster set with an extremely limited edition of only 25 sets printed.
Taking inspiration from the notion of Axis Thinking (the brainchild of frequent Bowie collaborator Brian Eno) the design depicts a series of mixers with sliders positioned so as to describe each Bowie album within Non-Format's own set of extremes. Print 1 covers the albums from Space Oddity to Young Americans and is printed gold ink on black paper. Print 2 covers the albums from Station To Station to Tonight
and is printed silver ink on black. Each poster is 26"x40" (660mm x 1000mm). Only 10 sets of posters were made available for purchase
and they sold out within a few days.
In 2012 the print David Bowie 1976–84 was added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum
in New York.
