ABOUT THE BOOK

This 608-page magnum opus is the most comprehensive book yet published on the work of Nobel Prize–winning singer-songwriter-poet and cultural icon Bob Dylan. Written and edited by Mark Davidson and Parker Fishel, it features more than 1100 images by 135 photographers, artists and filmmakers, many never before seen or published, that span the full arc of Bob Dylan’s career. The book also includes 30 original essays focusing on unseen treasures from the Bob Dylan Archive® by leading artists and writers, with an introduction by Sean Wilentz and an epilogue by Douglas Brinkley.

The book covers Dylan’s life, from his childhood in Hibbing, MN, and first recordings made in the 1950s, to his most recent albums and every important career milestone in between.

“This extraordinary book showcases the Bob Dylan Center and the artist himself. It introduces enticing new scholarship in the Dylan historiography to be studied and celebrated for generations to come.”

THE BOOK COMES TO LIFE AT
THE BOB DYLAN CENTER

“Mixing Up the Medicine: Treasures from the Bob Dylan Center” is the official exhibition for the landmark, career-spanning magnum opus “Bob Dylan: Mixing Up the Medicine.”

Featuring iconic and rare photographs, never-before-seen manuscripts and extraordinary artifacts from across Dylan’s life and career, “Mixing Up the Medicine” brings the images and text of the book to life, taking the stories we thought we knew about the iconoclastic musician and turning them on their head. 

Many of the items have never been seen, never been on display and will be shown only for the length of the exhibition in the Parker Brothers Gallery.
