Halcyon Gallery, London W1 have just published Side Tracks by Bob Dylan, the latest release in The Drawn Blank Series.

Each copy of Side Tracks (full title: Side Tracks – 17 October 1964 – Detroit, Michigan) in the limited edition of 327 is individually hand-finished and signed by Bob Dylan. Measuring 122 x 91cm, the piece is priced at £25,000.

Different versions of the original image, formerly entitled Train Tracks, have been published in several limited editions since 2008.

Train Tacks is the signature image of The Drawn Blank Series, based on pencil drawings by Bob Dylan published in his book of the same name in 1994.

According to Halcyon:

“Produced exclusively for Halcyon Gallery, Sidetracks is a running series of 327 unique prints, each hand embellished by the artist. In each version, he uses the same coloured reproduction as his starting point, but the colour and texture vary depending on the brushstrokes, with each image a more nuanced version of the last.”

For Rock Art Editions, The Drawn Blank Series by Bob Dylan is key rock art. I’ll soon be dissecting it here in some detail.
