All the Songs is the most comprehensive exploration of Bob Dylan's Nobel Prize-winning music and lyrics yet, with the behind-the-scenes look at the studio recording session, album, and every single released during his remarkable 50+ year career.

This New York Times-bestselling, definitive book captures in words and photos Dylan's creative process and his organic, unencumbered style of recording. Packed with stories, many unfamiliar even to his most fervent fans, Bob Dylan All the Songs profiles his 492 released songs. Organized chronologically by album, Margotin and Guesdon recount the inspiration behind Dylan's recorded songs, what went on in the recording studio, what instruments he used, and behind-the-scenes account of the great artists who worked with Dylan. Lyrics and accounts of the recording sessions are accompanied by classic photos, both in and out of the studio, to create a true Dylan treasury.

Bob Dylan: All the Songs is the comprehensive record of the singer-songwriter's career which defined an era and delighted fans for more than 50 years.
