RetroBlakesberg – Volume One: The Film Archives is a 312 page hard cover coffee table book presenting a vast collection of Jay Blakesberg’s iconic images shot on film spanning four decades. Beginning with images from his high school days in the late 1970s up until he went full time digital in 2008, this collection of photographs helps tell the story of the modern-day pop culture landscape documented by Jay. Each of the book’s four chapters, chronologically arranged by decade, begins with an engaging essay written by Jay wherein he discusses what was going on with his life, his career, and the pop culture he was documenting during the corresponding time period. These essays provide an intimate glimpse into Jay’s personal history and professional development, revealing how closely those paths are intertwined. Along with the photos carefully curated by Jay’s daughter Ricki, this book is Jay’s visual autobiography.

The book includes a foreword by Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, and an Introduction by spiritual activist and musician Michael Franti.

Each order form has a place to leave a note for who you would like Jay to sign your book too.

The Limited Edition offering is limited to 225 signed and numbered books that come in a custom made clamshell box, all are signed by Wayne Coyne, Michael Franti and Jay + Ricki Blakesberg. Each book comes with an 8x10 print signed by Jay with 3 print choices available; the RetroBlakesberg book cover, Jerry Garcia Smoker Portrait, or Neil Young 1991 portrait.
