This handsome hard cover volume presents an astonishing array of images that capture the musical, cultural and personal magic of the Grateful Dead on and off-stage.

An irresistible 25-year visual journey, it showcases more than 900 rich colour and black-and-white photos - hundreds never before seen - plus essays by Dead historians Blair Jackson, J.C. Juanis, and rock photographer Jon Sievert; a foreword by Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh; and photographer Jay Blakesberg's own reflections.

From Blakesberg's travels following the Dead in the late 1970s, to his intimate studio and home portraits in the '80s and '90s, up through and including photos documenting band members' offshoot projects (Ratdog, Phil Lesh and Friends, the Jerry Garcia Band, Mickey Hart and Planet Drum), Between the Dark and Light is a compelling view of an unparalleled pop culture phenomenon whose ripples will resonate for years to come. "Jay Blakesberg shoots 'em Dead on ... warts, halos, and flyin' hair. Keep on clickin'." - Wavy Gravy.
