A July 31, 2016, New York Times article on Milton Glaser describes this poster as “showing a silhouette of Mr. Dylan with bright plumes of hair billowing up. The design, which Mr. Glaser created at his house in Woodstock, was erudite and playful, a psychedelic riff on a famous self-portrait by Marcel Duchamp, infused with the influence of Persian painting. It made Mr. Glaser a leading voice in the design world.”
This iconic image by Glaser has become more or less the graphic statement of the 1960’s. The image was used by the artist on the cover of MILTON GLASER GRAPHIC DESIGN published in 1973. The poster has faint evidence of the original folds common to nearly all examples this poster.
