The exuberant, exhilarating photographs of dogs underwater that have become a sensation From the water's surface, it's a simple exercise: a dog's leap, a splash, and then a wet head surfacing with a ball, triumphant. But beneath the water is a chaotic ballet of bared teeth and bubbles, paddling paws, fur and ears billowing in the currents. From leaping Lab to diving Dachshund, the water is where a dog's distinct personality shines through; some lounge in the current, paddling slowly, but others arch their bodies to cut through the water with the focus and determination of a shark. In more than eighty portraits, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel captures new sides of our old friends with vibrant underwater photography that makes it impossible to look away. Each image bubbles with exuberance and life, a striking reminder that even in the most loveable and domesticated dog, there are more primal forces at work. In Underwater Dogs, Seth Casteel gives playful and energetic testament to the rough-and-tumble joy that our dogs bring into our lives.

ToiletMartin PaperParr is a new, special edition of Toiletpaper published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other. The recipe is very tasty: the founders of Toiletpaper hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with Toiletpaper images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images. And if you are not yet satiated by the end of this issue, you have only to start once more at the beginning.

After the adorable and up-for-adoption photos of these furry friends were seen and enjoyed by millions, adoption rates at Utah's Humane Society skyrocketed. The book features 100 dog photo booth style photographs, each accompanied by a short story about the dog's personality, how the dog ended up in the shelter, and the adoption date.

"While some of these dogs are purebred American Pit Bull Terriers (APBTs), the only true "Pit Bull," many of them look the part closely enough at first glance that they are lumped in to a loosely formed concept that is popularly referred to as the "pit bull" or "pitbull." I intentionally use the single word, non-capitalized "pitbull" to refer to dogs under this broad umbrella." This is a book about differences, similarities and assumptions. I started this project by asking people to bring their "pitbulls" and "pit-mixes" to photo shoots in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. I didn't ask for breeding papers, I didn't specify purebred American Pit Bull Terriers, I left it up to dog ownersto self-identify their dogs as pitbulls or mixes, because they had decided themselves or been told by a shelter, a vet, or a DNA test that is what their dogs were. The result is a collection of dogs that look very, very different from one another, and yet, if a legislator or a landlord saw any of these dogs, he would call them pitbulls. The point is that while some of these dogs are purebred American Pit Bull Terriers (APBTs), the only true "Pit Bull," many of them look the part closely enough at first glance that they are lumped in to a loosely formed concept that is popularlyreferred to as the "pit bull" or "pitbull." I use the single word, non-capitalized "pitbull" to refer to dogs under this broad umbrella. The dogs featured here are Boxer mixes, American Bulldog mixes, Dogo Argentino mixes, Whippet Mixes and so many other kinds of breed mixes it will not do to list them all. Some of the dogs that look the most "Pit Bull" actually have the least APBT DNA according to their tests. My own Harrison is a strapping young fellow, robust, blocky-headed, strong, and someone cut his ears, but he is more Whippet than Pit Bull. Laurelai, who started me down this road appears to be purebred APBT. As you go through the book, you may say to yourself, "That's not a Pit Bull" and you may very well be right, but to someone, some landlord, some shelter volunteer, some Breed Specific Legislation enforcer, some fearful neighbor or police officer, that dog IS a pitbull, or pitbull-enough. The misuse of the term is so rampant that "pitbull" has become nearly synonymous with "dog" and while it is true that today's All-American mutt has most of the characteristics that also define a true American Pit Bull Terrier, we are losing sightof what matters most: that a good dog is a good dog, no matter what you call him. The dogs in this book are each unique in their appearance and personalities, but they are united as good dogs, family dogs, therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs, and most importantly, happy dogs. They live with chickens, rabbits, horses, cats, other dogs, babies, cancer patients and humans with special needs. The owners in this book are part of a strong and growing movement of educated dog owners who advocate for education and understanding. These owners come from wildly different walks of life but follow the same road to liberate their happydogs from the crushing weight of societal misconceptions. Hopefully, seeing how different each dog in this project is from the next will illuminate how impractical and absurd it is to refer to them all with one label of any kind. Part of the proceeds from each sale go to pitbull-friendly rescues and dogs in need.

A BELOVED CLASSIC FOR DOG LOVERS OF ALL AGES With a new foreword by Ann Patchett In the 1930s, Lucy Dawson’s friendly, sympathetic portraits of dogs were so popular with readers of American and British magazines that she agreed to gather them together in a book, Dogs As I See Them. Now available once again after being out of print for decades, and a complete replication the original 1936 edition, Dogs As I See Them includes all of Dawson’s irresistible graphite and pastel drawings and handwritten notes. Along with her illustrations are her own amusing stories about the conduct of each of her subjects as they posed for her. Her charming reminiscences interpret the character and mood of each dog, and make us friends at once with each and every one in this gallery of endearing portraits. Dogs As I See Them is a remarkable collection dog lovers of all generations will take to their hearts.
