Overview

The dapper Quincy tells all in this lighthearted introduction to the art of photographing dogs. He’s generous with helpful hints, like “You can stop to smell the roses, but dogs don’t hold their poses,” and mindful of the smallest details, such as allowing the subject to sniff the camera. To top it off, Quincy shares his favorite snaps from the field in a quirky slide presentation. 
 
In his inimitable style, J.otto Seibold delivers a book overflowing with heart, humor, and four-footed friends. Part silly picture book, part off-the-cuff instruction manual, Quincy, the Hobby Photographer is an ideal gift for dog lovers and for photo enthusiasts of all ages.


 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR J.OTTO SEIBOLD
 
"Seibold's skills as an artist are on a par with the poetic powers of a Pulitzer Prize winner like [Richard] Wilbur [in The Pig in the Spigot] . . . an auspicious pairing of artist and writer that both parent and child can enjoy many times over."—The New York Times Book Review

"Eye-catching . . . Seibold's obsessive inclusion of excessive graphic minutiae throughout his tableaus is what makes his Alice [in (Pop-up) Wonderland] totally engrossing and worth reading more than once."—Steven Heller, The New York Times

Children's Literature - Ginjer L. Clarke
This humorous guide to dog photography from the author of the best-selling Olive, the Other Reindeer will entertain more than inform. The idea of using a film camera may be foreign to many readers in this digital age, and the steps for taking pictures are really too vague to provide enough instruction to kids who want to experiment with photography. It is unclear whether the book is really even intended as a guidebook or is just meant to be funny. In addition, many unfamiliar terms and concepts are introduced and not explained. The droll humor may escape some kids, but the voice is pretty funny, the dog pictures are really silly, and the illustrations are odd and whimsical.
