Books Info:

Postcard Dogs free pdf A beautiful collection of private photographs and amusing commercial postcards from the turn of the last century that celebrate our love for man's best friend.
While visiting postcard fairs and browsing their collections, Libby Hall, author of Prince and Other Dogs I and II, found herself won over by these cards. Wildly sentimental images that in a modern light might seem over the top-a dog crying real tears while thinking of his master fighting on the front lines during World War I, an Edwardian tea party given for a child's favorite pet, a canine family toasting their uncle's good health-suggest a genuine love and respect for the animals that were beginning to become a fixture of the modern nuclear family. For both collectors and general readers, Postcard Dogs will charm and amuse you with its odd yet heartfelt portraits, capturing the excitement and possibility of a society on the brink of profound change.
