Amazon Editorial Reviews
Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of his passing, Jerry Garcia: The Collected Artwork is a profusely illustrated showcase of, and appreciation for, Jerry Garcia's art, life, and creative spirit. Opening with a foreword by Mickey Hart, the collection features more than 100 full-color reproductions of his paintings, drawings, and prints. This historic presentation of Jerry's distinguished body of work (which includes pen and inks, acrylics, watercolors, and digital media) is at once a stunning art book in an accessible, coffee-table format and an intimate and playful celebration of his creativity. 

Edited by April Higashi, art curator and archivist of the Jerry Garcia estate, each chapter opens with a commentary on the art presented in the context of Jerry's life and times. Punctuating these essays are "interludes," illustrated by candid photographs, featuring interviews, anecdotes, and remembrances by key cultural figures as well as those closest to Jerry. Participants include Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Herbert Gold, Donna Godchaux, Victor Moscoso, Carlos Santana, Baron Wolman, Paul Pena, and members of the Garcia and Grateful Dead families.
