The poems are taken from a forthcoming book Hollywood Foto-Rhetoric: The Lost Manuscript; a collaboration from 40 years ago between Dylan and longtime friend/photographer Barry Feinstein, in which 23 poems accompany classic Hollywood shots of the reclusive singer.
The book is due for release on November 4, 2008 through Simon & Schuster, the same publisher through which his Chronicles Volume 1 was released. The publishers have previously confirmed that Dylan is working on the autobiographical sequel.
Also previously reported, is the forthcoming triple CD of unreleased and rare tracks ‘Tell Tale Signs’; a collection from 1986-2006, part of Bootleg Series 8 which is due for release on October 6.
However, Uncut has already heard the unreleased studio recordings, demos and live tracks and you can find out what they are like by clicking here for the Wild Mercury Sound blog on Dylan.
