Synopsis

Dogs Collected by Catherine Johnson Words by William Wegman by Catherine Johnson, William Wegman, William Wegman

An essential purchase for dog and animal lovers, this volume presents amateur, anonymous snapshots of dogs from the turn of the century to the early 1950s in all kinds of ordinary and extraordinary settings. In it we see dogs under the Christmas table, on front porches, at play by the beach, and posed beside babies, birthday girls and in the family portrait. Each photograph in this remarkable collection reflects a unique moment in time and the sometimes surprising, occasionally humorous, and always intimate relationships people have with their dogs.

Reviews

Man's best friend is a timeless subject... [An] appealingly idiosyncratic book... There could hardly be more compelling evidence of the strange effect that mutt can have on man. -The Daily Telegraph Anyone who's ever had a canine companion will fall in love with Dogs. -Scottish Sunday Post Delightful... A great gift for dog lovers or animal photographers. -Black & White Photography
