Photo book: Alive with the Dead cover

Alive With the Dead –
A Fly on the Wall with a Camera

A hardcover photography memoir of the Grateful Dead filled with band images + stories, from the ’80s on. The limited first edition (now in its second printing of 1000) is a 256 page hardcover coffee table book in a clothbound slipcase. In addition to the images of the band onstage where we all loved them, the bulk of the book contains previously unpublished images with a fresh insider perspective on the guys offstage, the touring party and the extended family.  It was my great good fortune to be Alive with the Dead  and to share it with you in this new book.

Limited second printing available NOW >

Susana Millman combines the keen eye of an artist, the sophistication of an insider, and the passion of a fan in her book ”Alive with the Dead / A Fly on the Wall with a Camera.”  If you were part of the scene, you will quickly see the authenticity of her images. Shot with a unique access and perspective, her photos capture the light of a world we were so lucky to be a part of.
