Orion and Various Contributors (Hachette Australia) 2014, Hardback 144pp, RRP $29.99
It’s easy to envy the freedom and exhilaration a dog must feel as they hang their head out the window of a moving car; wind in their face, ears flapping randomly in the breeze, eyes beaming and mouth wide open as the rush of air not only leaves them gasping but also creates some of the funniest, cutest, goofiest and weirdest looks imaginable.
This A5-sized glossy books consists of nearly 100 photos of dogs and puppies of all shapes, sizes and breeds sticking their heads out of the windows of either moving or stationary cars. These gorgeous portraits of our canine friends came from contributors around the world: William Hartley, Nick Hammick, Sally Felton, Laura Harper, Mid-Hudson Bloodhound Refuge, Ian Wedlock, Gisele dos Santos and Hander Paniwozik.
From pure-bred Spaniels, Basset Hounds, Terriers, Pit Bulls, Labradors, Beagles, Poodles Mastiffs and Border Collies to the mix-breeds like Cockapoos [Poodle x Cocker Spaniel] and Jack Russell Border Terrier X, Dogs Hanging Out Of Windows is filled with amazing images of exquisite, handsome, graceful, charming and fascinating pictures of lovable pooches happily soaking up the sun, the rain, the breeze or just the attention. The index at the back is really helpful if you want a quick search of your favourite breeds although, I suspect, it will be difficult to have just one favourite after sitting down with this book.
