Brautigan and Erik Weber met 28 September 1963, at a birthday party for Weber's wife, Lois. Weber photographed Brautigan repeatedly, for both book publicity and story illustrations, until 1978 when, according to Weber, Brautigan ended their friendship. For decades, most of these photographs remained unpublished, unknown. Weber has collected and published 200 photographs—portraits, projects, informal—in this literary photobook.
