About two years ago, a very large edition of Bob Dylan’s Lyrics Since 1962 was released. The original book is 12″ square, and contains large pages with notes, and full-size reproductions of album covers. It was also very expensive; the list price was $200, and it’s now selling for $299. It’s a great book, but it takes up a lot of space.
A new smaller edition has been released, at a much nicer price: list price is $60, but on Amazon, it’s currently about $38. (Amazon.com, Amazon UK) This book is a lot smaller, doesn’t have the album covers, and doesn’t contain the notes and variants. But for most people, this is a great way to discover the poems of this Nobel prize winning poet and musician.
This is a perfect Christmas gift for your favorite Dylan fan or poetry lover.
