New York, 2022-11-21 14:57:00. Bob Dylan’s publisher sorry for autographs
New York –
Bob Dylan’s publisher is offering refunds for a $600 special edition of his new book, “Modern Song Philosophy,” acknowledging that the purportedly “hand-signed” copies are not individually engraved.
“To those who purchased a limited edition Philosophy of Modern Songs, we want to apologize,” Simon & Schuster announced in a statement posted on Instagram on Sunday. “As it turns out, the limited edition books contain Bob’s original signature, but in replica form. We are addressing this promptly by providing each purchaser with an immediate refund.”
Simon & Schuster’s statement came after days of complaints from customers, who across social media compared their copies and found the signatures suspiciously similar. The books arrived with a letter from Jonathan Karp, CEO of Simon & Schuster, confirming the authenticity of the signature.
Published November 1 is The Philosophy of Modern Song, in which Dylan reviews compositions ranging from Hank Williams’ “Your Cheating Heart” to Jackson Browne’s “Pretender.”
A spokesman for Dylan declined to comment on Monday.
