Artist Tim Flach creates stunning, clever, abstract and sometimes humorous portraits of man's best friend and compiles them in this book which is much much more than your average coffee table book. With each color or black and white photograph Lewis Blackwell writes the concise history and description unique to each particular breed of dog portrayed. The portfolio begins where it aught to with the mother of all dogs the Canis lupus or better know as the wolf. From there we see and read about all of the different breeds man has created over the years -- dogs for protecting, hunting, herding, fighting, showing and companionship.
Tim has another equally beautiful book dedicated to horses entitled Equus.
