A collection of newly created handwritten lyrics and drawings of legendary musician Bob Dylan is on display in London ahead of an exhibition in Shanghai next year.

The exhibition Mondo Scripto is being held at the Halcyon Gallery before heading for a tour of Asia, America and Europe, including a stint at Shanghai's Museum of Modern Art, and gives fans a chance to view handwritten lyrics alongside original sketches by the 77-year-old American artist to illustrate the meaning or context of his songs.

"The fact that Dylan has done this is a gift to all of us ... Dylan has taken the care to rewrite, sometimes changing the words, sometimes changing the phraseology and then doing the drawing with them, which allows the individual to make an interpretation, is perhaps one of the most important historic art statements that has ever been made," Paul Green, president of Halcyon Gallery, says.
