The officially licensed Bob Dylan Archive is a table-top case and collection built for the storage and display of the musician's entire chronological CD catalog including his studio, greatest hits and original live albums. Beautifully packaged in a luxurious, linen-covered Showcase Box, the richly-designed Storage Book is rounded out by a stunning 220 page LP Artwork Book and Catalography, a unique discography with historical reviews and classic album ads that span Dylan's complete career. This is a "must own" configuration for diehard Dylan fans.
Here is a run down of what the Bob Dylan Archive contains:
• Storage Book – A unique book that gives fans the ability to store and organize their existing Bob Dylan CD catalog and memorabilia. It is designed specifically to hold all 43 of Dylan's official chronological CD albums, has additional room to store Biograph and later retrospective hits and compilations, and is expandable to store even more. The cover has a unique, black on black silhouette of a classic portrait photo of Bob Dylan by photographer Jerry Schatzberg.
• LP Artwork Book – The most comprehensive collection of iconic Bob Dylan LP artwork ever available, in a 220-page, oversized, hardcover book. All of the brilliantly restored artwork starting with the first album,1962's Bob Dylan, through 2009's Christmas in the Heart, has been set up in chronological order as if you're holding the entire collection of LPs on your lap. This stunning volume of iconic artwork alone makes this collection indispensible.
• Catalography – A brand new, unique discography includes excerpts from over 90 historical reviews and 27 classic advertisements that span Bob Dylan's entire career. The larger than LP sized, soft cover book, is a unique 54 page journey through Bob Dylan's entire album catalog.
• Showcase Box - Covered in a rugged yet soft, natural linen, the elegant case has Bob Dylan's name and logo debossed in thick black, matte foil, into the linen on the spines and back of the case, and an eye catching new print of a classic Bob Dylan photo is tipped into the cover. The case opens and closes with a magnetic door that reveals a continuous span of reproduced, original size Bob Dylan LP spines simulated across the three books inside.
The Bob Dylan Archive was conceived by Jonathan Polk, of BoxOfVision.com. "There is no body of recorded work more deserving of an elegant way to store and display than Bob Dylan's peerless album catalog," said Polk, a music industry veteran with more than 20 years experience. "This is not a catalog to simply store on a hard drive or in a cloud. The Bob Dylan Archive is designed to allow fans to keep all of the iconic LP size artwork, and 50 years of unparalleled recordings, at their fingertips and on prominent, reverent display."
The retail list price for this indispensible compilation is $130.
