Limited edition signed copy of Face Value, released in honor of Bob Dylan's 80th birthday

Rare signed book: Bob Dylan: Face Value by Bob Dylan and John Elderfield. First edition (limited 2021 release of 12 signed copies). London: National Portrait Gallery, 2013. Hardcover, 9 x 12, 63 pages. Signed in black felt tip by Bob Dylan on a bookplate affixed to the title page. In very fine condition. An intriguing collection of portraits by the internationally acclaimed icon of American music.

In 2013, 21 numbered copies of Face Value were signed in pencil by Bob Dylan on an official National Portrait Gallery bookplate, with the first three numbered examples retained by the publisher. Eight years later, on May 26, 2021, with zero pre-publicity and in celebration of Dylan’s 80th birthday, 12 additional copies were put on sale, each of which was signed in black felt tip by Dylan on a National Portrait Gallery bookplate. They were individually priced at £500 and were sold out in around two hours.
