Big Shots: the Photography of Guy Webster, Rock Legends and Hollywood Icons, written by Harvey Kubernik and Kenneth Kubernik, foreword by Brian Wilson has just won the prestigious IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence, Art & Photography division.

The Independent Book Publishers Association accolades are regarded as amongst the highest national honors for indie publishers. Big Shots won over a field of upscale photography books on such diverse subjects of The White House and San Francisco's famed Haight-Ashbury district. Webster's book lavishly features his portraits of rock music and acting stars from the 1960s on to the present, with thoughtful annotation by the Kubernik brothers for context.
