About this title

Synopsis:

This book faithfully reproduces 25 of the finest photographs, taken with a rare Polaroid camera, resulting from an unusually close partnership of man and dog, Wegman's Weimaraner, Man Ray. Together, they have created a series of images that play upon the great variety of human and animal life that surrounds us.

Review:

William Wegman is widely respected for his photographs of the majestic Weimaraner dog. One of his first models (and longtime companion) was a pooch named Man Ray, who passed away in 1982. This beautiful dog also plays a starring role in Man's Best Friend, where he is caught posing, napping, and playing in more than 40 (mainly color) photographs. Wegman dresses his dog in a variety of costumes--transforming him into a strange new creature--half man, half canine. Each exquisite portrait is a testament to Man Ray's beauty--and the strong bond between dog and master. This handsome book is one you'll admire time and time again.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
