BOB DYLAN: 13 Pounds of Lyrics
An updated volume of his lyrics will be published in November.
The Bob Dylan book, Lyrics: 1962-2001, has been updated, given a new title and will be published in November.
Now called The Lyrics: Since 1962, it is 960-pages long, weighs more than 13-pounds and is slightly larger than a vinyl record. Limited to 3,500 copies, it will sell for $200. There will also be a run of 50 additional copies, each signed by Dylan with a slipcase and gilded pages, which will sell for five-grand. The songs are presented chronologically, including alternative versions released as part of his archival Bootleg Series. The signed edition is available at DylanSignedBook.com with the $200 version being sold in bookstores.
Simon & Schuster president Jonathan Karp says it’s “the biggest, most expensive book we’ve ever published, as far as I know.”
