Past "dead head" fan art is the subject of 2011 book "Dead Letters: The Very Best Grateful Dead Fan Mail," which showcases years of fan art on envelopes.The book's description explains:
"Dead Heads went to extraordinary, often inspiring, lengths to get their hands on concert tickets by mailing the band and its staff. After all, the only way to get tickets for the Dead was to go directly to the source. Most often, this took the form of letters (and envelopes) with personalized Dead artwork the likes of which the U.S. Postal Service had ever seen."
