Sue Baker's view...

Jewish dogs, flatulent dogs, prize-winning dogs, rabid dogs and furniture-chewing dogs, dogs dead and alive – dogs, in fact, for all weathers.

The Lovereading view...

Whether you’re a dog addict or just a fan of brilliant illustration that is also full of humour this book is an absolute must for being centre stage on the coffee table. In a dog book like no other, there is nothing soppy about Steadman's eye as he exposes the heart and bone and sinew of man's best friend.

Synopsis

The Ralph Steadman Book of Dogs by Ralph Steadman

Ralph Steadman - artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance, long time unsentimental dog-lover - here shows us dogs - everywhere. Dogs in furniture; dog dictators; fashion dogs; blot dogs; beer dogs and wine dogs, bugs that live on dogs and uninvented dogs. Ranging from the fierce and furious to the whimsical and wistful, the whole world of canine life is here.

Reviews

Steadman has always been one of my heroes.
