If you're a David Bowie fan you're going to love this.

A new book gathering the greatest photographs of one of the greatest stars in history is on its way! According to the publisher, it is the most important anthology of Bowie images that has ever been compiled, with pictures of the classic rock legend from 25 photographers. The book, per the announcement, “showcases a stunning portfolio of imagery, featuring the iconic, the awe-inspiring, the candid and the surprising.”

The new book along with the images are accompanied by personal essays and reflections about working with the icon. From memories of the earliest days at the Arts Lab in Beckenham to what it was like touring the world with Bowie, each contributor shares their experiences of working with – and knowing – this most extraordinary figure.

From portraits and album covers, performances, and rehearsals, to rarely seen private moments and candid snapshots, this collection is at once powerful, sentimental and inspiring.

David Bowie: Icon arrives on Sept. 28 in the U.K. and Oct. 31 in the U.S. and Canada, just months before the fifth anniversary of the legend’s shocking passing on Jan. 10, 2016.
