Product Description

Award-winning photographer Rachael Hale''s 101 SALIVATIONS is a delightful collection of 101 dog portraits that will become a must-have for dog lovers everywhere. Rachael Hale''s signature style catches the eye of everyone who comes across it. Featuring 101 color photographs of Chihuahuas, Great Danes, and everything in between, 101 SALIVATIONS presents dogs in all sorts of wonderful poses that bring out their most endearing characteristics. Rachael''s secret to capturing a dog''s soul is to focus on his eyes-whether they are wide and shining, or heavy-lidded, in the throes of slumber. Within this book we can see the soul of our own best buddies staring back at us. The book is peppered with humorous and touching quotations from well-known authors such as A.A. Milne and Fran Lebowitz. Following in the paw prints of 101 SALIVATIONS, Rachael Hale''s 101 CATACLYSMS is a charming and playful tribute to the world''s most popular pet. This collection features 101 images of magnificent felines. Hale''s special rapport with animals has allowed her to capture the essence of her subjects. You will see it in the bald-faced cheekiness of Hilander, the sphinx; in the sassiness of Puffy, the Persian ball of fluff; and in the playfulness of Yabba Dabba Doo, the British shorthair. 101 CATACLYSMS also contains quotations from well-known personalities-such as James Herriot''s ``Cats are the connoisseurs of comfort''''-that will tickle the reader as they peruse this gem of a book.

From Publishers Weekly

Anyone who loves dogs knows that they have their own unique personalities-they may be brave or timid, placid or hyper-but they''re always soulful. In this collection of 101 arresting four-color portraits, Hale manages to capture the essential doggishness of her subjects, whether it''s Hamish the Chihuahua''s minuscule, quizzical face or the quiet intelligence of Loki, a Staffordshire bull terrier mix, sitting patiently with a kitten on his head. Though there are a few gratuitous props-a knitted cap on a Gordon setter, a pearl necklace on a Chinese Crested-the photographs don''t descend into the realm of the kitschy and too-cute, partly because the dogs'' expressive faces are the focus of the compositions. Hale tosses a few relevant quotes into the mix as well, e.g., Walt Whitman''s "The dog is the god of frolic," and P.G. Wodehouse''s "It is fatal to let any dog know that he is funny, for he immediately loses his head and starts hamming it up." The appendix, which gives a brief description of each dog''s story, adds dimension to the photographs. We learn, for example, that Jabba, an eight-year-old pit bull, is just as shy as she looks. During the shoot, Hale says, she "ran terrified from the room...frightened by a fly."

This is a beautiful book of photographs of dogs and just precious. We received this book over 15 years ago when we lost two beloved dogs from a friend and I just purchased it for a friend who lost his beloved dog. He loved it!
