woody at 100 boxed set

problem

Pretty much everyone knows Woody Guthrie and his iconic songs like “This Land is Your Land.” But for Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings wanted to paint a more comprehensive picture of Guthrie with a collection as rich as his legacy.

solution

To represent the direct nature of his music, Visual Dialogue used a never-before-seen photo of Woody at life size on the 12" x 12" cover. Inside the 150-page book, photos, artwork, lyrics, and artifacts help give context to the 57 songs on 3 CDs and show the breadth of Woody’s creative output. “The Guthrie boxed set is perhaps the most ambitious indication of the continuing revitalization of Folkways records.”–New York Times. Woody at 100 was honored with a Grammy Award for “Best Box Set or Special Edition Package.” See Fritz Klaetke’s acceptance speech.
