All-American X

Written In The Stars, 2010

Little Bear Press

All-American X highlights individuals whose works and actions inspire aspiration and imagination in uncertain times. The book also celebrates locations where the human spirit finds refuge and hope. These lofty themes are illustrated through the works and observations of an eclectic cast of characters, in what has become the signature form of the All-American series. This 10th anniversary edition of All-American features a profile of New York City Ballet founder Lincoln Kirstein, designer James Galanos, and socialite Babe Paley, a Bruce Weber portfolio of NYCB dancers Chase Finlay and Robbie Fairchild, chapters dedicated the photography of David Douglas Duncan, Cam Smith, Dean Fidelman and Leonard McCombe, short-form pieces on musicians Ray Charles and Gil Scott-Heron, a “conversation” between Ed Ruscha and Grandma Moses, and a chapter concerning the preservation of Cumberland Island and realized by long-time resident Gogo Ferguson. All-American X: Written in the Stars is softbound, 208 pages in length–our biggest edition ever! The print run is 5000 copies, first edition only.
