Now this [2] is awesome:

To celebrate Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday [3], AARP The Magazine commissioned artist Robert Silvers to create this Photomosaic of the legendary musician for ourMay/June 2011 issue [4]. Silvers, who invented the Photomosaic process [5], used 25 of Dylan’s album covers and other photographs of the singer taken throughout his career to re-create the compelling portrait shot by photographer Daniel Kramer in 1965. The image was later used as the cover for Biograph, a 3-disc compilation album released in 1985.

A picture of a mosaic is above, but you have to go to the page [2] to experience how the Photomosaic works — the albums are listed in chronological order too. That’s one special way to celebrate a birthday!
