Jerry Schatzberg catalogue: a handsome must-have for collectors – Dylan Bookshelf #140

November 26, 2008
Proud Central hasn’t produced a new catalogue for its exhibition of Jerry Schatzberg’s Blonde On Blonde-era Dylan photographs now showing at its gallery near Charing Cross station.

But it is selling the next best thing: Bob Dylan par Jerry Schatzberg is a catalogue produced for very similar Paris shows at Galerie Dina Vierny and Galerie Luc Bellier in 2006.

Its 46 images, a pretty accurate record of the current London show, are prefaced by a four page introduction (in English and French) by the photographer – The Dylan I Knew.

Proud is retailing the handsome 79pp catalogue for £15. It’s a beautifully produced artefact and a must-have for Dylan collectors.

Bob Dylan par Jerry Schatzberg is the 140th book added to my groaning Dylan bookshelf.

Free issues of Judas! magazine

November 4, 2008
The Dylan Daily was a keen supporter of Judas! It was a stimulating, attractive Dylan quarterly magazine, expertly edited by Andrew Muir. It burned brightly for 20 issues, before closing in January 2007.

If you missed out, here’s your chance to acquire back issues; all contain high quality writing.

Publisher Keith Wootton is now offering free copies of the following issues:


All you pay is postage. Shipping costs vary depending on destination, but (for the) UK he charges a flat £12.00.

Judas! was a formidable achievement – a fine body of Dylan writing, and a source of pride for all concerned. It’s highly recommended. But act quickly – when they’re gone, they’re gone.
