A Pug with startling blue eyes and endearingly wrinkled face gazes directly into the eyes of the viewer. Impossible not to love him! A honey colored Labrador Retriever pup with his snub nose and silky floppy ears is titled "Say You Love Me." Of course, we do! A Golden Retriever's love of water is expressed in succeeding photos as the happy dog shakes water from his russet coat. Read more...
It's difficult to describe the intimacy one feels. You will find that each photo first captures your eye and then your heart as you try to read the expression or body language of each dog. It's like the animals speak to you from the pages, and you can look into their eyes and hear what they would say.
Tim Flach's photography is incredible, and I suppose he is a victim of his success in that you start to hold each picture to such high standards. He uses his camera for capturing dogs characteristics and beauty. Each page of this book is a work of art. He has a way to communicate with his subjects and create something magical.
I didn't know the writing would be important as well. Each photo is accompanied by a page of information on the breed. The text discusses the evolution of dogs, the importance of their relationship with humans, as well as current breeding practices.
Incredible photos, interesting facts, and an elegant cover - what more could you ask from a book like this? Trust me, you'll want to show it off to all your guests, and you'll keep coming back to it yourself for a long time. Enjoy!
