"Dylan" Bob Dylan. By Milton Glaser, 1966. Color photolithographic poster with halftone. 83.8 x 55.8 cm (33 x 21 15/16 in.): Milton Glaser, one of the founders of New York’s Push Pin Studios, created an icon of 1960s counterculture in his now-classic Dylan poster. It was a new form of poster, according to the artist, created as a bonus insert for the Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits album of 1967. Dylan, who wrote such songs as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “Mr. Tambourine Man,” was the folk-rock poet of the 1960s, and Glaser used his famous name as a typographically innovative design feature on the poster.
