'As they say on the beach - "You're burning my film" - have a great summer.' (Bruce Weber, Summer Diary 1986).

This special supplement to Per Lui magazine follows on from Weber's Album. Photo Tour 1985, published in the previous year's July/August issue. Summer Diary 1986 records Weber's road trip around California and presents a hedonistic dream of Summer - youth, Zuma beach, movie stars, nudity, bars, Shangri-La Hotel, surfing, Lisa Marie, night clubs, life guards. Weber's photographs are complemented by vintage Summer snaps of the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Mitchum, Allen Ginsberg, Lauren Bacall and Elvis. The stylist was Joe McKenna. With drawings by Richard Giglio.
