David Bowie, Neil Gaiman, Yoshitaka Amano

More on the interaction of David Bowie and fantastic literature. If Bowie’s various personae–the masks and images he was constantly recreating and presenting to an audience–can be seen as texts, then they lie in an intertextual relationship with a story by Neil Gaiman, ‘The Return of the Thin White Duke’. These, in turn, relate to paintings by Yoshitaka Amano inspired by this phase of his career.

See this article, which has further links to the story and the paintings:
