Bob Dylan Play Book – a collector’s colouring and activity-book dedicated to the clothes, songs, and key people and places in the career of the legendary singer-songwriter; the complete guide to the brilliant world of Bob Dylan. This is the ultimate collector’s activity-book to be approached with glue, scissors and colouring pencils, dedicated to all the fans of the legendary singer-songwriter.
Beginning with rockabilly, moving on to folk music, sliding over to electric, and falling into a psychedelic phase, like a chameleon Bob Dylan has changed his skin repeatedly over the years, juggling his image with apparent ease and subverting the prevailing social and aesthetic models each time.
His Supro guitar and the leather jacket – reminiscent of James Dean; the muse of his hobo period Suze Rotolo and his legendary Triumph Bonneville; the Newport Jazz Festival and the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village: artist Matteo Guarnaccia has documented this pilgrimage of styles stage by stage, year by year, with a wealth of detail.
