Bob Dylan by Milton GLASER
Bob Dylan poster for CBS Records
Glaser applied his signature psychedelic style to a poster he designed for Columbia Records in 1967 to illustrate Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits album. The work led to a surge of fame as a graphic designer.
Taking design cues from a self-portrait by French-American artist Marcel Duchamp, the poster sees Dylan’s side profile illustrated as a black silhouette, providing a stark contrast to the rainbow-coloured, swirling lines designed to represent the singer’s curly locks.
