THIS IS A SCARCE VINTAGE HEIRLOOM EASTON WITH LAVISH GILT IMPRESSIONS TO THE BOARDS AND SPINE with AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS & ACCOMPANYING POETRY. IT IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY-PRIZED EDITIONS OF THIS MASTERPIECE. With the superior artisanship and eye for the natural horse that has made him the world's most celebrated photographer of horses, Robert Vavra presents a book of AMAZING images, profiling eighteen stunning equines spanning six breeds: Arabian, Andalusian, Morgan, American Saddlebred, Friesian, and Peruvian Paso.
As in Vavra's most popular books, all are alone and running free in glorious natural settings: a white Arabian in a sun-washed desert; a black Friesian galloping in snowdrifts; a gray Andalusian amid violet flowers; a chestnut Arabian prancing in autumn leaves. These lush photographs are accompanied by poetry and are followed by text and drawing that profile each breed, highlighting the particularly outstanding traits of each horse depicted. Vavra pays special attention to the Andalusian, providing an essay on its romantic history. Fuses the beautiful simplicity of Vavra's earlier works with a new, fresh image of horses.
For anyone who loves horses or simply appreciates the finest of photography. Is a lovely gift -- a paean to this most beloved of animals.
