early insomniac installment of Picture Book Monday

Coffee has begun brewing. I made a cup of VIA to tide me over in the meantime. Here are some of the lovely F and Gs sent me by the LURVELY Victoria Stapleton from Little Brown. They were waiting me when I got back from NCTE and were a welcome site. I do not have all the covers as these are not pubbed yet, but I will add covers as I can scan them.





WHEN BOB MET WOODY: THE STORY OF YOUNG BOB DYLAN by Gary Golio with illustrations by Marc Burckhardt (Little Brown 2011). What is not to like here? Dylan? Guthrie? My generation of music? Folk songs that told the story behind the headlines? Lustrous illustrations (should have better adjectives but this will suffice for now) accompany a spare text that contains quotes from Dylan along with flashes into his early career. Dylan, as I discovered, sort of invented and reinvented himself and his own story as he traveled across country. Golio tries to set the record straight, but truth, as they say, is sometimes stranger than the fiction. Does not matter, the book is a feast for those who know Dylan and Guthrie and the music and it will be a revelation for those who do not. <519>

Tie this one to some of these ladder steps:

ODETTA by Alcorn
LIVES OF THE MUSICIANS by Krull
JANIS JOPLIN: RISE UP SINGING by Angel
FOREVER YOUNG by Dylan
