A beautiful and engaging collection of artwork and visual typography that explores the delightful diversity of dogs
From Schnauzers to Chihuahuas, Mastiffs to Maltipoos, crime-sniffing Blood Hounds to chic Bichons, dogs have charmed humans across the world for centuries with their lovable quirks and appealing personalities. In Dog Love, Ann DeVito brings man’s best friend to life with a collection of vibrant illustrations and snappy descriptions that pay loving homage to pups from all walks of life—no pun intended—from sophisticated, recognized breeds to lovable mutts and everything in between. DeVito’s distinctively bold, whimsical art combined with fun facts and famous quotes results in an elegant book that will delight dog lovers of all kinds.
