OK, so this book is unlikely to appeal to the general reader (hence only 4 stars), but it is essential to anyone with a real interest in the band and the sub-culture that surrounded them.

From the moment this quality hardback book is in your hands, you know that it is "different", from the novelty "window" that opens on the front, the fact that it is printed "landscape" style rather than the conventional "portrait" printing of a book. On opening, you will be faced with what I would describe as a book of illustrations with some narrative, and for me it is the illustrations that the book is all about. The pictures consist in the main of the envelopes sent to the GD's ticketing office, and what envelopes they are, some so elaborate that they must have taken hours to create the designs!

My advice is to put your favorite gig on, turn up the volume, and wander through this volume - bet you can't help but smile.

As a footnote, I'm surprised that the Amazon comments include the fact that Grushkin's book Grateful Dead, the Official Book of the Deadheads to be the most successful book relating to the band. Again that is essentially a "picture book" with a little narrative.
