Overview

Foreword by Susan Orlean
A charming facsimile edition of celebrated British illustrator Lucy Dawson's 1937 classic collection of highly detailed and loveable drawings of dogs, complete with a cloth spine and ribbon marker--the companion volume to the acclaimed Dogs As I See Them.

Lucy Dawson, also known as "Mac," was a preeminent British illustrator in the 1930s and 1940s revered for her paintings and etchings of dogs, from sporting and non-sporting breeds to hounds and herders. Though she worked in numerous mediums--pencil, pen, ink, and oil--her pastels set her work apart. Noted for her commercial dog postcards and her delightful "Tailwagger" series, she also created a "Puppies" series of 40 cigarette cards during World War II--produced in a limited quantity due to wartime restrictions on paper--which have become a rare collector's item today. One of her most famous works is her portrait of "Dookie," the British Royal Family's favorite Corgie, which was later reproduced as a Royal Family Christmas card.

Dawson also published several books, including the beloved Dogs As I See Them, and its follow-up, Dogs Rough and Smooth. Now, Dogs Rough and Smooth is available in a lovely facsimile edition for a new generation discovering her superb craftsmanship. Printed on an uncoated stock that simulates the look and feel of a sketchbook, this delightful volume is filled with her beautiful, endearing drawings of a range of breeds. The illustrations are accompanied by notes in Dawson's own handwriting as well as a short anecdotal text that provides amusing insight into the personalities of her canine models and the experience of drawing each.

A stunning reproduction of this classic work filled with full-color and black-and-white complete drawings and sketches, Dogs Rough and Smooth features a foreword by acclaimed writer Susan Orlean, and is packaged in a three-piece case with a beautiful cloth spine and long ribbon bookmark. Dogs Rough and Smooth is sure to be a collector's item treasured by dog lovers of all ages and art connoisseurs for years to come.
