I don't review books I don't like!
*****= An all-time favorite
by George Rodrigue and Lawrence S. Freundlich
Paintings by George Rodrigue
Viking Studio Books, 1994. Available at Sembach Library (759.13 ROD).
This book actually stared at me when I pulled it off the shelf. It is contained in a slipcase with holes for Blue Dog’s yellow eyes to peer out.
This is another art book, quirky and interesting. After the death of his beloved pet Tiffany, painter George Rodrigue felt he was visited by her spirit. She began showing up in all of his paintings.
This is a beautiful book, full of lovely and interesting paintings, done on high-quality paper, and using interesting effects with typefaces. The story of blue dog is a little strange, but it keeps your interest, and even gives a nice message about love.This book is definitely worth a half-hour of your time. Look for it on the library shelves!
