CHRONICLES VOLUME ONE
PAPERBACK PUBLICITY PACK (2005, UK)
When "Chronicles Volume One" came out in paperback in 2005, the UK
publishers produced a publicity pack consisting of a card folder (about LP size)
with a number of items slipped into the pocket of the card folder.
These included: (1) a poster, (2) details of the publicity campaign and (3)
a copy of the book cover, not yet folded around a book. In the publicity
pack shown, there was also a press release about "Scrapbook" and a small
cellophane envelope but it is not certain that these originally came with the
The cellophane envelope contained : (1) a small brochure about
the book, (2) a "Chronicles" sticker, and (3) a fake guitar pick with mention of
Dylan and "Chronicles". (Thank you
to Ian Woodward for the photo and details).
It appears that there were variants of the promo pack: another one consists of a Gatefold Card Folder (double LP size) with a number of items slipped into the pocket of the folder. These items include: a folded poster, a double-sided paperback campaign sheet, and a smaller 8-page card booklet advertising 'Chronicles Volume One', 'Lyrics', and 'Scrapbook'. Most of the components are silk-finish with elements of silver. (Information and image bobdylanisis.com)
