Space Oddity The Picture Book

 

Some songs are so vivid we can’t help but picture the lyrics while we listen. Illustrator Andrew Kolb found this especially true of David Bowie’s 1969 hit, Space Oddity. So he reconstituted those lyrics into a peculiarly cheerful picture book. Publishing bigwigs haven’t yet recognized Kolb’s genius move. But Kolb isn’t sitting still. He sends his book out into the world as a PDF.  It really makes the grade. Hear that bigwigs?
