As we all know, pets are the best-loved members of the family; they are always there with a wagging tail, and, unless there's a sofa-scratching or shoe-chewing incident, we rarely have cause to argue with them. Such is people's love of their animals that accessories and clothing have become a booming business - think designer dog leads, personalised collars, rain coats and even dog food cookbooks - but with Hoop n Loop, there's a difference: pets become the stars of their owners' wardrobes and homes. In 2017, after years spent as a professional pattern cutter in the fashion industry, animal lover Carol Tai decided to put her two passions together - illustration and dogs - to create personalised t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, cushions and tote bags featuring people's pet portraits. This book, with a brief introduction explaining how to get started, pull-out and downloadable templates and step-by-step projects showing you exactly how to recreate the 20 most popular breeds in thread form, is perfect for the dog lover and fashion addict alike, showing just how easy it is to create your own homage.

Pawfiles presents a dog-by-dog glimpse at the personalities and character quirks behind some of her favorite subjects. In what other book of portraiture will you find a model bio that includes "chases rats and pigeons" followed by "loves filet mignon and creme brulee"? Welcome to the dog-centric world of photographer Kim Levin. Nearly a decade ago, Levin began shooting photos of dogs (and occasionally cats) in and around Central Park. What began as a dog-loving photographer's hobby has blossomed into a successful career as a pet portrait artist nonpareil. With nine books of dog photos to her credit and a booming portrait business, Levin has become a virtual Avedon for the pet set. Pawfiles is filled with portraits by turns charming, touching, and goofy. Each dog's mini-portfolio is accompanied by its stats (age, breed, and home) and a short but revealing "about the model" statement. About Oliver, a 2-year-old English bulldog, we learn of a Beanie Baby obsession. Simone, a 7-year-old poodle, is described as "airhead by day and tramp by night," and Max, a 12-year-old border collie, "enjoys butt rubs"--but, then, who doesn't? This hard-to-resist book is sure to elicit the same two-part response from all dog lovers: 1) I need this on my coffee table, and 2) My dog should be in the sequel.

The love between dogs and their people is a bond so exceptional it can be hard to put into words. So Brian Nice uses photographs instead -- nearly one hundred and fifty beautiful portraits of noted celebrities with the special dogs they love -- in a book that will delight both your eyes and your heart. The pictures and the quotes that accompany them are tributes to the countless ways a dog can make any person's life special, and Brian Nice has caught his celebrity subjects (both human and canine) as you may never have seen them before: relaxed, goofy, blissfully happy, and completely in love with their four-legged friends. Brian Nice's own pug, Buster, whose enchanting photo graces the cover, is the inspiration for the book. After Buster was saved from blindness by a doctor recommended by the Humane Society of New York, Brian wanted to do something in return. This book is a special gift of thanks to them, and the author's proceeds will go to benefit both the Humane Society of New York and Much Love Animal Rescue in Los Angeles, both no-kill animal shelters. A very special book about some very special dogs, Rescue Tails is a book to treasure, reminding us each and every day not only how much love and happiness dogs give us, but also what we can do in return, and of the opportunity we all have to make a difference in a dog's life.
