"Bruce Weber's new book, Gentle Giants, is a whimsical journey into the world of his favorite dogs. Placing Newfoundlands in a variety of contexts, Weber intersperses his photographs with lighthearted text. From New York and California to Montana, Saskatchewan, and Rome, the book is an odyssey of Newfoundlands. Patti Smith contributes a special poem to the book, capturing the spirit of these magnificent dogs."--the publisher
