Book Review
Widely respected for his stunningly astute observations of dogs (more specifically, of the majestic Weimaraner), William Wegman once again dazzles with Puppies. Here Wegman chronicles three generations of Weimaraners with his insightful commentary and exceptional photography. Wegman's love for his dogs is expressed in every photograph and in every line of his awe-filled text. Speaking about his second Weimaraner, Fay, the author says, "She looked like she had wandered out of a Rousseau painting. Those luminous yellow eyes." Fay's radiance inspired Wegman to greater creative depths: he began dressing her up to appear almost human, a common theme in his photographs. Fay starred in many Wegman titles, including ABC and Cinderella. It is Fay's children, and later her grandchildren, who take the center stage in William...

From Publishers Weekly
Although Wegman's artistic output includes photography and video work that doesn't feature canines, by the mid-Seventies, he wryly notes, I had become the guy with the dog. The dog was Man Ray, a weimaraner with a movie star's instinct for the spotlight. Using a 1978 20x24 Polaroid camera, Wegman captured his beloved dog on film; for more than 20 years now, Wegman has continued to experiment with the camera, immortalizing his next weimaraner, Fay Ray, and a long line of her progeny. Though the collection contains a few portraits of people, next to the expressive and enigmatic canine tableaux, Wegman's human compositions are pale and unengaging-less human, in fact, than the dog photographs. In Rouge (1982), one of the last portraits of Man Ray, the ailing dog's eyes shine with wisdom and melancholy. In contrast,...

The short explanation-on both counts-is that he has been too innovatively funny for too long and on too many levels (visual, verbal, commercial and...

William Wegman's ABC

From Publishers Weekly
The wizard of weimaraners outdoes himself in posing his graceful canines to illustrate A through Z. The four members of a weimaraner squad, positioned on a colorless ground and photographed from above, form the shape of each letter. Below, a caption enlivened by alliteration or other wordplay includes a key word spelled out in the weimaraner-made letters (the copyright page drolly identifies this makeshift "typeface" as "60-point Weimaraner"). Full-page color photos face each letter: for instance, the "G" page reads, "Fay is glamorous in her gorgeous gloves and gown"; opposite, weimaraner Fay Ray is seen decked out in a strapless dress. The captions are clever, but the photographs are no less than superb, demonstrating the range of Wegman's wit and technical excellence. The illustration for Q, for example, shows...

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2. If you have young patrons (and/or their parents) who have enjoyed Wegman's Cinderella (1993) and William Wegman's Mother Goose (1996, both Hyperion), you will have an audience for this spin-off of the old tale of the country mouse and the city mouse. For those not familiar with Mr. W's productions, the photo illustrations star his patient, photogenic weimaraners, posed wearing human clothes and rather eerily depicted with human hands?and feet?where necessary. In this tale of a lesson learned, city boy/dog Chip visits his friends on Farmer McFay's farm and is inveigled into doing all the work. While Chip doggedly digs and plants and cleans cow stalls and mows and acts as a scarecrow, his pals dawdle, sip milk, fish, and generally loll about. A wiser Chip packs up and heads cityward to...

From Publishers Weekly
With their amber eyes and slouching postures, the weimaraner dogs photographed by Wegman haunt readers; the artist's use of human limbs in place of the animals' paws adds another dimension of strangeness. Yet in this collection of nursery rhymes, Wegman tones down the spooky shadows of, say, his Little Red Riding Hood in favor of bright pastels and airy negative space. The weimaraners solemnly consent to wearing a pink bonnet for "Little Bo-Peep" and a chef's hat for "Three Men in a Tub" and "Pat-a-Cake"; once again, thanks to clever set design and draped costumery, some gesture with human fingers and feet. But their doggy nature is not wholly camouflaged: in the illustration for "This Little Piggy," a canine farmer surreptitiously sniffs a rottweiler puppy "piglet." Wegman extends the comic element to the text...

Book Review
William Wegman and his cast of canines are back, and this time Chip is in a bit of a bind. His school report is due and he hasn't got a clue as to what he might want to report on--all he wants to do is take pictures! But write a report he must, so Chip heads downtown in search of a topic. He consults a host of characters--and snaps their photos, too--including fire chief Chundo, construction foreman Culvert, Barry the beautician, and police officer Badgerino, who tells Chip that "ideas come from everywhere. There is no one way. Look in all directions." Chip takes Badgerino's valuable advice and decides that a photo essay is a great idea. After all, a "picture is worth a thousand words!" Wegman does it again with imaginative settings, colorful text, and those delightful Weimaraners.
