Bob Dylan Apologizes For Controversy Over Autopen Signatures

Bob Dylan Apologizes For Controversy Over Autopen Signatures

Bob Dylan has apologized for using autopen to autograph special copies of his new book that had been advertised as “hand-signed.”

In a statement addressing the controversy on social media, the legendary musician admitted that it was an “error in judgment.”

“I’ve hand-signed each and every art print over the years, and there’s never been a problem,” Dylan wrote on Facebook.

Dylan said that after a “bad case of vertigo” prevented him from being able to sign the books physically, the idea of using an autopen was suggested to him, “along with the assurance that this kind of thing is done ‘all the time’ in the art and literary worlds.”

“Using a machine was an error in judgment and I want to rectify it immediately,” he added.

The publisher Simon & Schuster offered 900 “hand-signed” copies of Dylan’s limited-edition book “The Philosophy of Modern Song” for $599.

But when fans compared photos of his signature, the publisher admitted that the books contained a “penned replica” of Dylan’s autograph and offered full refunds.
