Between the Dark and Light is a unique visual documentation of an unparalleled pop culture phenomenon. More than 900 classic photos lead you through the colorful world of the Grateful Dead and make you part of intimate moments on- and offstage. Most of these images, shot from 1978 through the present, have never been published before. You’ll also see photos documenting the band members’ offshoot projects, including RatDog, Phil Lesh & Friends, the Jerry Garcia Band, and Mickey Hart and Planet Drum.
With Blakesberg’s backstories, a foreword by Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, and historical essays by Blair Jackson, J.C. Juanis, and Jon Sievert, Between the Dark and Light takes you on an irresistible 25-year journey through the one-and-only Grateful Dead experience.
“It’s glorious to have those kind of moments in some other form than an audio recording – to be able to have a kind of visual record of the sound, as well as the people and the places.”
– Phil Lesh, from the book’s foreword
