Ralph Steadman—artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance—is also a longtime dog lover. In his latest book, he shows us dogs on furniture, fashion dogs, wine dogs, fantastical crossbreeds, and even the insects that live on dogs. The Ralph Steadman Book of Dogs captures the fierce and furious, the whimsical and wistful, and everything in between, including:
• Saloon Bar Dog
• Antisocial Blot Dog
• Buddhist Dogs Searching for Happiness
• Dog Baby Substitute
• Decibelle, the Noisy Mongrel
With his trademark style and strong eye, Steadman exposes the heart and bone of our canine companions to create a stunning dog book like no other.

Read an Excerpt
To do another book about dogs in the wake of my three
other books about dogs is, I am aware, a trifle excessive.
Well, it would seem so but then I heard a report that there
are, at least, fifty million more dogs in the United Kingdom
alone and their owners are going to need more vital wisdom
about these faithful but stupid creatures that will help them
to sustain a sense of humour – not to mention proportion –
if they are going to treat their mutts right and give them a
half-decent life and, most importantly, see the funny side of
their every action.
