The Attics of Our Lives: Posters and Art of the Grateful Dead Archive
This 225-page book documents the special one-night-only preview exhibit of the Grateful Dead Archive held Nov. 5, 2011, at McHenry Library, UC Santa Cruz. Written by Grateful Dead Archivist Nicholas Meriwether, the book documents the rich history of Grateful Dead poster art and how that illustrates the band’s archive at UCSC. With feature interviews with Stanley Mouse and hundreds of color illustrations, the book is a fine introduction to how the band’s legacy is being preserved and presented in Santa Cruz.
The book was given to those who attended the benefit event. Nick Meriwether was kind enough to offer us a copy to auction off for KPFA. It’s a hard-cover book, beautifully printed on high-quality paper.
Let’s begin the bidding at $100. Auction ends February 1. Proceeds go to KPFA.
