Lay, Lady, Lay (2018), a hand signed limited edition print by the legendary Bob Dylan from the debut Mondo Scripto collection.
The Mondo Scripto
collection features a selection of Bob Dylan’s most renowned lyrics, handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by an original pencil drawing - offering for the first time ever a visual representation of his lyrics.
From the Nashville Skyline album, this gentlemanly but frank plea for a lover to ‘stay with your man awhile’ was a big hit for the singer. The lyrics, which switch from first person to third person and back again, have the atmosphere and diction of country music, although the image of a ‘big brass bed’ is there to be found in many a blues lyric as well. Dylan has always been ambiguous when it comes to genre.
