Book Description

27 Oct 2009
For the last forty years Bob Dylan has never ceased to be one of the most creative and inspired musicians in the world. Mesmerized by the power of his lyrics and intrigued by the possibilities of translating his powerful, enigmatic personality into art, thirteen leading graphic artists banded together to create this unusual testament to the universality and transcendent vision of an American musical genius. With their vibrant, unexpected colors and dynamic, cinematic imagery, this group has assembled in Bob Dylan Revisited one of the most provocative interpretations of Dylan s music in decades. These artists capture the tender emotions, the ineffable sadness, and the romantic overtones of Dylan s classic songs, at the same time reflecting the moral and political urgency of his music. Each artist s style surprisingly complements Dylan s lyrics and offers an irresistible window through which to reconsider one of America s most enigmatic artists. A deeply respectful and brilliant homage to the extraordinary influence of Bob Dylan. Featured inside: "Blowin In the Wind" by Thierry Murat "A Hard Rain s A-Gonna Fall" by Lorenzo Mattotti "I Want You" by Nicolas Nemiri "Girl of the North Country" by Francois Avril "Lay, Lady, Lay" by Jean-Claude Gotting "Positively 4th Street" by Christopher "Tombstone Blues" by Bezian "Desolation Row" by Dave McKean "Like A Rolling Stone" by Alfred, Raphaelle Le Rio, Mael Le Mae, and Henri Meunier "Hurricane" by Gradimir Smudja "Blind Willie McTell" by Benjamin Flao "Knockin on Heaven s Door" by Jean-Philippe Bramanti "Not Dark Yet" by Zep Nominated for two 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards: Best Anthology; Best Short Story ("Hurricane" by Gradimir Smudja)."

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Dylan Revisited 13 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
When I first saw this book I loved the idea of artists interpreting Bob Dylan's work, however I had serious doubts about how well this would be executed. As soon as I opened the book I realized how wrong it was of me to doubt its quality. Every page is a joy to behold, a different style of artwork coming from each artist along with a thought-provoking story. I don't believe i saw a complete list of the songs contained in this book so here they are listed with there artists:
"Blowin' in the wind" by Thierry Murat
"A hard rain's a-gonna fall" by Lorenzo Mattotti
"I want you" by Nicolas Nemiri
"Girl from the north country" by Francois Avril
"Lay, lady lay" by Jean-Claude Gotting
"Positively 4th street" by Christopher
"Tombstone blues" by Bezian
"Desolation row" by Dave McKean
"Like a rolling stone" by Alfred, Raphaelle Le Rio, Mael Le Mae and Henri Meunier
"Hurricane" by Gradimir Smudja
"blind willie mctell" by Benjamin Flao
"knockin' on heaven's door" by Jean-Philippe Bramanti
"Not dark yet" by Zep
I highly recommend this book to any Dylan fan, especially one that is interested in seeing a collection of attempts to interpret the works of Bob Dylan.

5.0 out of 5 stars bob dylan revisited 28 Dec 2009
By wenz
Format:Hardcover
This is a stunning book - for fans of Dylan and graphic artists alike. Thirteen of Dylan's songs, including Desolation Row, Blowing in the Wind, Like a Rolling Stone and Lay, Lady, Lay, have been interpreted by leading graphic artists and the result is a beautiful book and new insights into the songs. Each artist is so different and effective that it is difficult to choose a favourite, although I loved Thierry Murat's depiction of Blowing in the Wind and also Jean-Claude Gotting's of Lay, Lady, Lay (possibly because of the song). Since Dylan is also a visual artist, it would be interesting to know what he thinks of the book - but have a look you will be rewarded.

I have read many books about Dylan over many years, but few bring such a fresh prospective as this book. It gives you fantastic excuse to go back and listen to some of his greatest songs and find something new and exciting in each one. A second and third volume are much awaited.
