Via texts and images, this concise overview covers the entire career of the most influential singer-songwriter in the history of popular music.

In 2008, Bob Dylan became the first rock artist to win a Pulitzer Prize, for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." A musician, poet, and celebrated nonconformist of unparallelled stature, Dylan is revered by critics and fans alike as the most influential singer-songwriter in the history of popular music. For over four decades he has inspired folk and rock lovers around the world. His distinct brand of personal philosophy and socio-political comment has metamorphosed through a variety of musical forms, from traditional folk, blues, and country, to gospel and rock and roll, all the while establishing a unique soundtrack to our lives.

Setting out in 1961 as a young man with a guitar and a harmonica, this enigmatic artist has grown into an international cultural icon, the tireless author of over 30 albums and a relentless live performer. This concise overview covers Dylan’s entire career via texts and images.
