What is dog was one of us | Joby Barnard
Joby Barnard never pictured himself drawing dogs. Until Clem, that is. Twice-a-day outings with the whippet and countless encounters of the dog kind inspired his book, What if Dog was One of Us? The book skilfully pairs crisp line illustrations and witty captions to breathe life into a band of lovable characters
imagine if dogs wore clothes, had jobs and dreams – just like us. Would different breeds suit different vocations? Might they grapple with status anxiety or ethical shopping choices? Are they aware of the inexorable passing of time, or how much all those tennis balls really cost?
This little book of drawings answers none of these questions really, but it might make you look at our four-legged friends in a new way.

Bread and a Dog | Natsuko Kuwahara
A food stylist who began her career as a pastry chef in a bakery, Kuwahara found Kipple on an animal fostering website and duly adopted her nine years ago. Living in the Nakano district of Tokyo, she describes her beloved dog as “self-effacing and slow tempo, sometimes stiff-necked, but calm and peaceful. She lives at her own pace.”
When Kuwahara began to upload to the internet some of the pictures she had taken, the mixture of tantalising meals and an inquisitive furry face proved irresistible and she soon found a sizeable following. The project has now been turned into a book, Bread and a Dog, which comes with recipes for the dishes that are teasing the mixed-breed pooch, such as black-sesame pancakes and banana-coconut muffins.
