Overview

Celebrate man's--and woman's--best friend with an extraordinary assemblage of color photography that captures the beauty, playfulness and boundless affection of our beloved canine companions. More than 220 pedigreed dog breeds are represented in this special, pocket-sized portrait collection, which also offers accompanying text that details the history, physical characteristics, personality traits, work and sporting uses of the breeds, and gives insights into the bonds between dogs and their humans. Many rare breeds are included, from the water-loving Pont-Audmer Spaniel to the protective Iceland Shepherd. The major groups are featured, including the Terriers, Scent and Sight Hounds, Companion and Toy dogs, Sporting Dogs, Herders, and Primitive types. Masterfully portrayed by internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, whose book of aerial photography Earth from the Air has sold nearly one million copies, these wonderful photographs remind us of just why, no matter their size or shape, we truly love our dogs.

This is a wonderful photo book for people who love dogs. The full-page photos of dogs and dog people are often endearing and amusing. There is a short description (a few paragraphs at most) about each dog breed / picture, and it doesn't get into the technical aspects of breeds that Encyclopedias do. Caution: I was quite startled when I turned a page and saw 1. A naked man (he wanted to see what it felt like to be a naked in public as a hairless dog), and 2. Mating Grayhounds. Some people are just a little more uptight than others.
