DOGS AS I SEE THEM by Lucy Dawson / Foreword by Ann Patchett
In the 1930s, Lucy Dawson's friendly, sympathetic portraits of dogs were so popular with readers of American and British magazines that she agreed to gather them together in a book, Dogs As I See Them. This volume brings her highly collectible book back in print, replicating the original 1937 edition to a T, including all of Dawson's irresistible graphite and pastel drawings and handwritten notes printed on thick sketchbook paper. Along with Dawson's illustrations are her own amusing stories about the conduct of each of her subjects as they posed for her. Her charming reminiscences interpret the character and mood of each dog, and make us friends at once with each and every one in this gallery of endearing portraits. Dogs As I See Them is a remarkable collection dog lovers of all generations will take to their hearts.
A beloved classic for dog lovers of all ages, with 85 full-color and black-and-white illustrations and a new foreword by Ann Patchett.
