A Letter from David Jones

The image above is a response to the first American fan letter sent to David Jones also known as David Bowie. The remarkably timid reply from September of 1967 comes from a 20 year old David Bowie that was a far cry away from his Ziggy Stardust persona. It is humbling to see how appreciative he was to receive the letter and to get a glimpse at Bowie before he was immersed in fame. Read more about it at Letters of Note, a really cool blog (at least for nerds like me) that compiles similarly significant correspondence.
