Featuring nearly 200 pages of full-color images by an astonishing variety of artists, this must-have book is a first-class compilation of exquisite works of art, carefully researched and chosen to capture the allure of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel over its 700-year heritage.
Elegant, entertaining, and of meticulous quality, this celebration of Cavaliers in art is a delight to read, and I take pleasure in commending it not just to dog fanciers, but to anyone who simply enjoys outstanding art. --Dr. Edgar Peters Bowron, Curator of European Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, and co- author of Best in Show: The Dog in Art from the Renaissance to Today
What a gem this book is! An elegantly produced, superb-quality production, from the printing itself to the stylish layout and design.
