Dead Head Stories

 DHS Is a treasure trove of tales about the Grateful Dead and the experiences of their dedicated legion of fans—the legendary Deadheads—as told by the fans themselves. This book is crafted from thousands of stories (2400+) and comments contributed by Deadheads as part of a collective non-profit project. Telling the stories of the extraordinary relationship between the band and the audience. 100% of the money goes to printing, publishing, and shipping. No one gets a paycheck 100% for all volunteers.

Mike Dubois Studios has gratefully donated the front cover once he finished and prepared it for Book cover.

This joint community also created the design and layout of this book from inception to publication. This project will be a continual project every year to help as many as we can. We need help to reduce costs with T-shirt prints and shipping. We have a (Go Fund Me) campaign out and have funded the campaign to print and publish the book. 8.5 x 11 350 page, color coffee table book. The book layout has been in process now for a month with plans and hopes to have it on the shelf approx December 1, 2018. Leave us minimal stock inventory with the holidays coming up might hurt book sales. We WILL also MAKE IT INTO the Guinness Book of World records once the book gets published.

We may not have it all together,

 but together we have it all.

Risks and challenges

We have reached the cutoff date for collecting stories, 8/26/2018 and in the process of proofreading and book layout and design.
Then the book will go to professionals for the final proofread and layout designs. We are hoping by the 1st of October to send it for final approval.
It takes two weeks to print so the biggest challenge will be the finalized proofreading and layout design.
The plan is to start disturbing approx Dec1st or before, but there is always a chance it could be January release date due to Holiday schedules of printers. However, the plans are Dec 1st, 2018
