Bob Dylan ↠ 5 review

In Revisionist Art Bob Dylan offers silkscreened covers of popular magazines from the last half century that somehow escaped history’s notice As Luc Sante says in his introduction to this collection they seem to emanate “from a world just slightly removed from ours a world a bit honest about its corruption its chronic horniness its sweat its body odor I really like Bob Dylan I even remember liking the art on the album Self Portrait published 100 years ago I remember thinking self indulgent but believableThis book is self indulgent but not believable I think Bob is trying to figure out exactly how much crap his fans are willing to put up with I am a big fan of feminine beauty and I realize there are many many versionsvisions of beauty Warhol s greatest contribution may be his differing visions of Liz and Marilyn Bob s visions seem to uglify whatever version of beauty you may have They are certainly unattractive to meAs far as male beauty Bob seems to go in for men whose faces have been mangled in a fight Not my cup of tea The text is about as impenetrable as Boots of Spanish Leather However the song had lots of beautiful imagery and a wonderful tune It goes from Great Big Print to GREAT BIG PRINT which is all right justified I m no artist but as a student I have been assigned papers that had to be a certain length like five pages If I came up short one tactic was to find a bigger typeface Bob seems to have been assigned a one hundred page paper but he only had five pages of text S o w e g e t g r e a t b i g p r i n tSo why two starsBecause its Bob one of the greatest artists of our time Should I ever meet him I wouldn t want to have to defend one star
