All-American is an on-going yearly arts journal series, which features previously unpublished work by Weber, occasionally with other archival and commissioned work. Little Bear Press is named after Weber’s dog Little Bear, who passed away in 2000. All-American is dedicated to him. The first issue includes features on college football star turned coach Cyrus James Ellsworth; photographer Pirkle Jones; Weber’s Golden Retriever puppy named True Blue; mountaineer Bradford Washburn; surfer Matt Archbold; artist Paul Stone; and Weber’s neighbour in Montana John Hoiland. The second explores the notion of families, and the ways that different artists and writers portray them. It includes Weber’s photo essays on twins Pietro & Andrea Clemente, two brothers named Nick and Steve, and Elizabeth Taylor; George Daniell’s photographs of youths playing in the Hudson River; Jeremiah Goodman’s paintings of apartment interiors; and photographs taken by William Gedney in Kentucky. Barry Lategan is a fashion and advertising photographer who opened his studio in London in 1965. He is a long-time contributor to Vogue, and is perhaps best known for discovering Twiggy and taking the iconic first portraits of her in 1966. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
