Description
Whether you love a Chihuahua tiny enough to tuck into your bag or a Great Dane verging on the size of a pony, this delightful book of dog portraits by Barbara Karant has somebody for you. In her studio photography she playfully captures the colossal and the pint-sized together (often on top of one another, in fact) and also offers some tongue-in-cheek size and weight comparisons—Gazzoo, a tiny eight-pound Papillon, weighs no more than pair of hiking boots, for example, while Burger the Bulldog is more comparable to a console television. Throughout, quotes from dog lovers give us something to think about: "I hope if dogs take over the world, and they choose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some good ideas" (Jack Handey). And that's about the large and the small of it.
