Hello,

I just wanted to share something with other Bob Dylan fans...

It's the Graphic Design project I made – a book about Bob Dylan:

I warn you that this is a one person work (and non-profit). My sources (and resources) were limited – I had to base on my own time, skills and money. And just as a reminder – this was an exercise in the field of graphic design, not in research or editorial.

Also, I do like Bob Dylan a lot, but I am no expert in his music or any other aspect of his life.
So please, forgive my ignorance or any inaccuracies.

I wanted this book to be a tribute to Bob Dylan's artistic achievements but also to a modernistic design, that is why I used very limited means of expression.

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Here you can find photos of the whole thing:

Looks like it took a lot of creative thought and effort to design and make it, and it turned out beautifully. Bravo!

Oh, yes... Hundreds of workhours. But personal satisfaction (and the praises from others too) make it worth it :) Thanks again!

I appreciate all comments – thanks!

Of course it would be fantastic to publish the book, but I don't know if it has market value for a publisher (business is business) and publisher would have to be willing to deal with all the copyright owners (included material from many creators)...
