The Ralph Steadman Book of Dogsby Ralph Steadman
Synopses & Reviews
In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman went to America in search of work and found more than he bargained for. At the Kentucky Derby he met a former
associate of the Helland#8217;s Angels, one Hunter S. Thompson. Their working relationship resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism.
The Jokeand#8217;s Over tells of a remarkable collaboration that documented the turbulent years of the civil rights movement, the Nixon years, Watergate, and the many bizarre and great events that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. When Thompson committed suicide in 2005, it was the end of a unique friendship filled with both betrayal and underandshy;standing.
and#160;A rollicking, no-holds-barred memoir, The Jokeand#8217;s Over is the definitive inside story of the Gonzo years.
A new book by legendary artist Ralph Steadman, capturing man's best friend in every way imaginable.

Ralph Steadman—artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance—is also a longtime dog lover. In his latest book, he shows us dogs on furniture, fashion dogs, wine dogs, fantastical crossbreeds, and even the insects that live on dogs. The Ralph Steadman Book of Dogs captures the fierce and furious, the whimsical and wistful, and everything in between, including:
• Saloon Bar Dog
• Antisocial Blot Dog
• Buddhist Dogs Searching for Happiness
• Dog Baby Substitute
• Decibelle, the Noisy Mongrel
With his trademark style and strong eye, Steadman exposes the heart and bone of our canine companions to create a stunning dog book like no other.
