Susana Millman's recent release: Alive with the Dead or A Fly on the Wall with a Camera initially only 1000 copies were printed, but these quickly flew off store shelves.   We're happy to report another order was recently printed & now available at Here what some folks are saying about the book:

"Susana’s book is a warm, intimate document of her membership in several overlapping tribes of smart, soulful, fun-loving people who know the value of truth and fun." -- David Gans

"I just got my books, OMG, they are gorgeous! What a masterpiece, and you know I KNOW what I’m talking about in the music photography department after working with Jim Marshall and the JMP Estate over the course of nearly 20 years." -- Caroline Rustigian K-Line and Co.

"The latest, and one of the best, is by Bay Area photographer Susana Millman who, along with her husband, author and publicist Dennis McNally, was part of the band's inner circle from the mid-1980s. Since that time, Millman has been one of the most successful photojournalists at capturing the human side of the band members, crew, and family that make up the complex and ever-evolving society that was - and in many ways still is - the Grateful Dead. This generous and beautifully appointed book contains plenty of great shots of the Dead onstage, but many of the most enchanting photos come from other situations - backstage, out to dinner on tour, or extracurricular musical events like Mickey Hart's Planet Drum tour or Jerry Garcia's collaborations with his own band and with David Grisman." -- Michael Parris

"Got the book today, it’s fucking gorgeous!…as close to being music as photography can be." --  Greg Anton

"It’s that time of year again: every band worth listening to will release a hardy coffee table book for the Christmas season, only to turn around and make another one next year. The Grateful Dead, however, find a slipcover with soul this holiday season in Susana Millman’s book Alive With The Dead: A Fly On the Wall With A Camera, a five-pound tome that features Millman’s own photos of the psychedelic rock giants. In the composition’s pages, Millman crams 25 years of her photographic work with the band into a 256-page 12” by 9” hardcover." -- Victoria Wasylak
