Published Mar 23, 2011Bob Dylan is turning 70 in two months, but the songwriter's fans still have a lot to look forward to. Along with an upcoming documentary, a live album and a planned series of books, the folk legend will be getting his own Bob Dylan Archive next month.
This is an officially licensed three-book collection. It's been put together by Box of Vision, who previously released collectible sets for the Beatles and John Lennon. It's coming out in the linen-encased box, and contains the following three books:
- The Storage Book, which essentially acts as a deluxe CD wallet. It contains slots for all 43 of Dylan's CDs, plus room for later compilations.
- LP Artwork Book, a 220-page hardcover book that contains -- surprise, surprise -- all of Dylan's album artwork in chronological order.
- The Catalography, a 54-page book that the Box of Vision website calls a "full colour discography and journey through Bob Dylan's entire album catalog." It has album reviews and classic advertisements.
The set costs $130. You can check out more pictures and pre-order here, and it will ship no later than April 15. See a trailer below.
