Synopses & Reviews
Ralph Steadman -- artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance -- is also a long time dog lover. In his latest book, he shows us dogs, everywhere: dogs on furniture, fashion dogs, wine dogs, even a fictional dog, and the insects that live on dogs. From the fierce and furious to the whimsical and wistful, the whole world of canine life is captured in The Ralph Steadman Book of Dogs. 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.
