DAVID BOWIE SIGNED WALLPAPER

An excellent piece of Bowie memorabilia with a rich history. The item is a framed piece of 'wallpaper' printed by Laura Ashley for the 1995 New Afro Pagan Work: 1975-1995’ (approx 20 x 31cm) signed clearly by David Bowie and dated 1996. The item is sold with an assortment of documentation of the signing itself, which came in 1996 when Bowie was being interviewed on Dutch television for the show 'Karzel'. The interviewer mentioned his (Bowie's) designing of the wallpaper and unpromoted, our vendor appeared from the audience with a piece of the wallpaper (which he'd brought along, hoping to have it signed). For a more concise explanation - a full clip is available on Youtube (see here). Includes letters, tickets, schedules, VHS and DVD copies of the interview. Provenance: from the collection of renowned Bowie super fan and collector Ton Van Der Horst who ran a popular Dutch fanzine 'The Voyeur'.
