Publisher's description: Bringing the work of renowned British illustrator Lucy Dawson (ca. 1870-1954) back into print, this facsimile edition of her renowned 1936 collectible classic features a range of delightful charcoal and chalk drawings of various breeds, along with the artist's keen and droll observations on her subjects. Foreword by Ann Patchett. A preeminent British illustrator working in the 1930s and 1940s, Lucy "Mac" Dawson was famous for her pen, ink, oil, and pastel paintings and etchings of dogs which graced books, postcards, and even the Royal Family's Christmas card, which sported her portrait of their favorite Corgi, "Dookie." Printed on an uncoated stock that simulates sketchbook paper, this reproduction of Dogs as I See Them is filled with Dawson's beautiful, endearing drawings of different breeds, accompanied by her handwritten notes and short, whimsical anecdotes that provide amusing insight into the personalities of her canine models and the experience of drawing each. Bestselling author, avid dog lover, and Lucy Dawson fan Ann Patchett introduces the collection with an illuminating essay on the artist and her work.
