Co-Founder Sam Taylor, drawing from his experience in both the music and book industries, brings a unique vision to life.

Reviving Literary Classics with a Roaring Beat

In the world of classic literature, fans have often lamented the absence of merchandise akin to what the music industry offers its artists. Sam Taylor, whose career spans both music and books, recognised this gap and was inspired to provide literature enthusiasts with high-quality, collectible art. With Dead & Read, Taylor seamlessly marries the reverence for timeless literary works with the edgy, rebellious spirit of heavy metal.

Merchandising Literary Gems

Key Features of Dead & Read’s offerings:

  1. Reimagined book covers that combine the allure of classic tales with striking heavy metal designs.
  2. Exclusive apparel, including t-shirts featuring iconic literary figures in heavy metal-inspired renditions.

Sam Taylor, the founder, expresses his passion, saying, “As a live music fan, I love the ability to collect posters and other merchandise that keeps the memory of the moment alive. The music industry really knows how to give their fans covetable and collectible memorabilia, which is just not something you find with books. So this Halloween, we’re launching our first collection of Classics – 3 Horror titles with a Heavy Metal twist.

Beyond the Books: Authentic Dead & Read Merchandise

The artistic essence goes beyond the pages of classic literature. Each book is complemented by screen-printed t-shirts and signed posters, transforming each piece into a collector’s treasure. The captivating fusion of horror and heavy metal is vividly brought to life through the spellbinding illustrations of Dan Mumford, renowned for his work with rock legends like Metallica and Iron Maiden.

This Kickstarter campaign marks Dead & Read’s debut, inviting readers and music aficionados to proudly wear their passions and celebrate age-old tales with a contemporary twist.

Horror x Heavy Metal: An Unparalleled Edition

With just 666 copies of each horror classic available, these collections become exclusive masterpieces. This iconic number pays homage to the horror genre and the evocative imagery associated with it.

Dead & Read’s collections represent the future for literature and music enthusiasts—immersing themselves in the tales, wearing the stories, and embracing the rhythm. Visit Dead & Read’s Kickstarter page to secure your limited edition collection and be part of this unique literary and musical journey.
