Explore the geography of genius in Desperately Seeking Bowie, a pocket-sized hardcover that situates major milestones from David Bowie's career in the locations where they took place. Detailed maps show his movements around the world, while profiles of notable locales illuminate the interaction between artist and place. Bowie fans will be thrilled by this career-spanning tour of his global trajectory, from his home in New York City to the studio in Berlin where he recorded three of his albums, to the narrow London street where he posed for the cover of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Like the other titles in the series, Desperately Seeking Bowie looks at a major cultural icon from a brand-new perspective, providing context for his life, work, and legacy.
The new volume in the Desperately Seeking series traces the journey of Che Guevara from young medical student in Buenos Aires to leading revolutionary icon. From his seminal motorcycle trip through South America with his friend Alberto which opened his eyes to the devastating injustice rampant in the world and the dangers of imperialism and corporate greed, to his untimely death in the jungles of Bolivia. Putting the milestones in his life in both a chronological and geographical context, we trace the development of his ideology along with his military training culminating in his role as one of the leaders of the Cuban revolution. In a brief, but eventful life, Che traveled the world addressing inequality and was one of the first to call out the West's institutionalized racism at a fiery speech at the United Nations.
For someone who traveled as much as he did, it is a marvel that Andy Warhol had time to make art. Desperately Seeking Warhol traces the artist's movements around the globe from international cultural hotspots like New York, Paris and Rome to lower-profile burgs such as Carbondale and Montauk - more well known now, partially as a result of Warhol's involvement. Relentless in the pursuit of new avenues to create and sell his work, Warhol set up shop in a dizzying variety of locales, working for and with other artists, musicians, controversial world leaders and more. Manhattan features heavily, with detailed maps exploring Warhol's favorite hangouts across multiple decades. The maps and location profiles here form a fascinating picture of a larger-than-life cultural icon whose energy few have been able to match since.
