The author of a new photo-documentary series about his encounters with 1000 dogs worldwide will be at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park next week.
The Dogist by Elias Weiss Friedman tells the stories of the dogs he met during his 2-year journey to 30 cities around the world.
The folks at Third World Books say that “every portrait in the book tells a story and explores the dog’s distinct character and spirit. Sections include Puppies, Cones of Shame, Working Dogs, and Dogs in Fancy Outfits, giving every dog lover something to pore over.”
I haven’t read the book yet but it’s getting fabulous reviews.
Here’s one example:
“This is quite simply my favorite book of the season and I love that Elias champions a wide range of dogs, from fancy uptown breeds in NYC to scruffy rescue pups as far away as China. The book is grouped according to type (puppies, working dogs, dogs in raincoats, small breeds, etc.) and tells some incredible stories, like those of dogs rescued from fighting rings who are now certified therapy dogs. Whether you’re picking up a copy for yourself, a loved one or early holiday shopping, The Dogist is a must-have for any animal lover. It’s a celebration of the reasons why we love our pets so much, and how much they bring into our lives.”
Mr. Friedman will be at Third Place Books at 17171 Bothell Way NE in Lake Forest Park next Wednesday, November 4th from 7PM – 8PM.
