The Grateful Dead photographer extraordinaire Jay Blakesberg has announced a new photography book featuring archival photos of Jerry Garcia, due out this October 1st, 2019.
Super Excited to announce my newest Book Project. Coming out October 1, 2019 is my new coffee table book: JERRY GARCIA – SECRET SPACE OF DREAMS. 208 pages – hard cover. The book includes photographs I have taken of Jerry from 1978-1995.
Blakesberg is a long-time Deadhead and band follower and scene photographer, and this book takes a look through his archives and takes a focused look at the reluctant Grateful Dead leader, Jerry Garcia.
He goes on in the announcement to say that he also “asked some friends to write some essays before revealing that the foreword was written by Dead & Company guitar frontman John Mayer with the afterword written by Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools. He also got David Gans to do the intro and Jerry’s daughter Trixie Garcia to write “a really sweet essay,” too.
You can pre-order the book now, including the limited edition version detailed below.
There will be 175 copies of the limited edition version of the book. It will come in a custom clamshell box, it is numbered up to 175 copies, it comes with an 8×10 signed and numbered 8×10 of Garcia (signed by me) and the book itself is signed by Me, John Mayer, Dave Schools, Trixie Garcia and David Gans!!! Books will ship with lowest numbers first in the order they are received.
Order it here and expect it sometime shortly after September 15, 2019
