This poster was created by Milton Glaser for inclusion in the Dylan's Greatest Hits LP issued by Columbia Records in 1967. 

It features a striking image of Dylan's profile with streaming, multicolored hair and is considered a masterpiece of '60s graphic design. Inscribed by Dylan: "Trust your own / judgement / Don't follow leaders / Be your own!! / Bob Dylan / 1967." This item comes with a letter of authentication from certified forensics examiner James Blanco (formerly of the US Treasury Dept.) who compared it to over 100 known examples of Dylan's writing from this period. Matted and framed under glass but it could be sent unframed. The only signed copy of this poster that we've seen. Price: $12,500.00
