Acclaimed photographer Bob Minkin today launched a Kickstarter campaign for Just Bobby: Bob Weir Photographed, a forthcoming coffee table book featuring approximately 200 images of Grateful Dead/Dead & Company guitarist Bob Weir. The 152-page tome includes both live and behind-the-scenes photos spanning the mid-1970s to the present.

“I pored through every photograph of Weir I ever took to find the most special shots to include in this collection,” Minkin wrote of the follow-up to the 2019 Jerry Garcia photo book Just Jerry. “Bob with the Grateful Dead will be well represented as will Ratdog, Wolf Brothers, Furthur, Dead and Company and more.”

Minkin’s photos of Weir captured at such iconic venues as Red Rocks, Madison Square Garden, Shoreline, Oakland, Sweetwater Music Hall and Terrapin Crossroads will be accompanied by anecdotes from people close to Weir and those who have unique insight into Bobby’s music. Those who pledge $65 will receive a standard edition of the book while those pledging $220 will receive a hand signed and numbered deluxe collector’s edition of Just Bobby limited to 100 copies.

Many other rewards are available at various pledge levels. Just Bobby is expected to ship in June 2022. Head here for more information or to back the project by pledging.
