Beloved Dog #Books!

beloved dog book maira kalmanIf you’re going to buy just one dog book for the holidays, I’d heartily recommend Maira Kalman’s Beloved Dog. It’s a gorgeous, colorful, witty publication –– and all about the love of a good dog!

And I’m not alone. See the heartwarming reviews in Brainpickings or Modern Dog!


Maira Kalman Presents #Dogs Illustrated

1999_02_01_Kalman_Dog_Reading_1000-670In honor of last month’s announcement that The New Yorker was opening up its archives for FREE to readers (back to 2007) — I thought I’d suggest this essay on the colorful illustrator/writer/dog lover, Maira Kalman, whose work you’ve no doubt seen on the mag’s covers for years!

French #Dogfriendly Book for Kids…and #Chiens

If you enjoy the artwork of Maira Kalman or Wendy MacNaughton (Lost Cat), then you will surely love the witty illustrations of Jackie Clark Mancuso in her new kids book, Paris-Chien: Adventures of an Ex-Pat Dog.

The charming dog tale is all about Hudson, a curiously inquisitive Norwich Terrier, trying to fit into the Parisian lifestyle. Bon appétit! (Picture Book Review)
