By now, many of us have heard of or read the children’s book adaptation of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”. Space Oddity, illustrated by Andrew Kolb, is a singularly spectacular adaptation of the song’s lyrics. Even better are the two works, song and book, presented together as a music video. The emotional arc of any great tragedy is condensed into a 5 minute slideshow with audio. The pdf isn’t currently available due to legal issues, but is likely now on file sharing sites and, for the time being, is available here via YouTube. Let us know in the comments if the link goes dead, and enjoy.
