Overview

Dogma pairs Kim Levin's stunning black-and-white photography with Erica Salmon's poignant aphorisms to capture the nature and nuances of the way dogs live.dogma--(n.) 1a: something held as an established opinion; especially: a definite authoritative tenet b: a code of such tenets pedagogical dogma c: a point of view or tenet put forth as authoritative without adequate grounds. 

Dogma, a book wherein dogs get to hold the definite authoritative tenet, provides a distinct point of view. And it's one that readers will find both amusing and insightful.

In her previous books, photographer Kim Levin touchingly chronicled our affection for dogs in evocative images and words. Now she's applied her creative energy to Dogma, an attractive volume that details a dog's life. More important, Dogma, is a code of living for dogs by dogs. But humans just might want to pay attention, too--Dogma, presents seemingly innocent lessons that would be valuable for everyone to learn.

Throughout Dogma,, canines of all varieties demonstrate the good life in entertaining photos by Levin and carefree maxims written by Erica Salmon:

* Befriend all sorts of creatures.

* Explore your own backyard.

* Smile even if your teeth aren't perfect.

* Sniff out a situation before running into it.

* Let loved ones call you silly names like "Stinky" and "Sweet Pea."

Together, the words and pictures create a clever take on how life should be lived. Dog lovers and anyone looking for the simple life will savor this wonderful book.
