Review

'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

Fun, surprising, warmhearted, and quirky. You will love this book. Each time I look at it, I see something new. It is a quality book with hundreds of dogs up to all kinds of mischief and clearly a beloved part of the family. Great gift for animal lovers.

If you buy one book this year for a dog lover -- this is the book to buy. I have several dog books with vintage illustrations and this one is beyond any others that I own. It is beyond stunning. I could go on and on about this book I love it so! It is THE perfect dog book to buy as a Christmas (or anytime) gift. Plus -- it is so reasonably priced! Just buy it! Buy multiple copies but be sure to keep one for yourself!

The book is a collection of eclectic family dog images. Catherine is one of the largest collectors of these old snapshots. It looks as if the images are affixed to the pages. This book is really neat. These images are very special. This book impressed me in the quality of the printing far more than I can express.

As a collector of dog photos and amateur photographer, I enjoyed this book.

The range of breeds included is marvelous as is the volume of photographs included.

The quality of the book (binding, paper) forced me to limit the book to four stars. However, given the price of the book one can still enjoy the content rather than pay through the nose for a huge, glossy, impeccably printed coffee table type book.

If you love or a friend love not just your dog, but all dogs and what dogs mean to our society, this is a worthwhile book.

My new book came today from Amazon.com and I love it! Anybody who loves old photography, especially of dogs, will love this book. Caroline Johnson collects amateur snapshots of dogs, this book is a collection of photos from the turn of the century up to the 50's. It also has a smattering of quotes and writings from William Wegman, the worlds best known dog photographer. Phaidon published the book; as an art student I quickly realized what great books they choose to publish, this is no exception. Some might review the faux cloth binding treatment as lesser quality but it is a great price for a 500+ page picture book.

It is especially fun for me to see all the old bulldogs! I think every other page has one. Oh! And all the old boston bulls pictures... They must have been quiet popular during the early days. There is even one picture that has writing on it. It says, "Can you find Pat? He's a Dandy little Toy Boston Bull and a female! Patsy is her right name." Lake Erie Summer 1928. That old pat joke from Saturday Night Live must be much older or it's an inside joke. The image is of a man cradling a Bt marked bulldog.

This will be a treasured addition to my growing collection of books on dogs.

Enjoy! Naomi & Mugsy (Olde Boston Bulldogge)
