The most beautiful Newfy book ever!
Essential literature for every serious Newfy fancier and canine art lover and collector.
The finest of paintings have been dedicated to the Newfoundland. The most famous of them is 'A Distinguished Member of the Humane Society' by Sir Edwin Landseer. The first chapter of the book is dedicated to that icon of the breed. But other art utterances are as valuable, as is shown in the various chapters. Larger than life-size statues, delicate small poems and everything in between in every art form and material, emphasizes that it is not for nothing that the Newfoundland belongs to the dog breeds which attract a high number of collectors. This book is the number one guide for every Newfoundland collector to enrich his passion as no publication has done before.
