Arf!

Arf!

Take a peek inside — the dogs in this book are unlike any dogs you have ever seen. Who can resist page after page of these adorable pups? It's impossible not to have a favorite. Is it the tiny shih tzu or the big, fluffy Shetland sheepdog? This noisy alphabet book of dog sounds and commands will appeal to the dog lover in everyone.

The Dog Artlist Collectionfeatures dogs photographed at unique angles by dog lovers using special lenses to highlight the features of each puppy. The photographs in this book were selected from a portfolio of more than 100,000 images. These unusual photographs first appeared in Japan as a collection of postcards and quickly expanded into a line of calendars, plush animals, games, and more, all available worldwide.

Review:

"Purebred puppies and miniature dogs, gazing at the camera with adoring, dewy eyes and sniffing with big moist noses, appear in this high-end, greeting card — cute photographic ABC. Most of the snapshots are taken in the comical snout-in-the- camera mode, so that the dogs' heads appear enormous and their bodies look stuffed- animal tiny. A fuzzy young beagle softly gums a rawhide chew toy for the letter F, 'Fetch!' and a black pug licks its nose with a pink tongue for the letter M ('Mmmmmm'). Occasionally, the photographers exchange the facial close-up for an aft shot. A wiry-haired dachshund — whose body looks hyperextended given the extreme perspective — models for the letter T, 'Tail,' and a silky King Charles spaniel waves a greeting on the W page ('Wag, wag, wag'). According to the text, these images were taken by multiple artists for the Dog Artlist Collection and became a postcard series in Japan, but the consistency of the shots and the symmetry of the pages suggest a strict, uniform approach. The editors allot one letter and one dog to each page, and place every image within a pure-white, empty background, la DK's informational books. An index names the dog breed representing each letter (not a mutt in the mix). While the ebullient animals exude energy, this tidy alphabet seems designed for maximum visual impact at the expense of draining them of animation. All ages. (Apr.)
