In her 'visual celebration of the ancient relationship between humans and dogs', Catherine Johns begins with a brief account of the domestication of dogs since the earliest times and their manifold roles in human society. The main part of the book, 'Dogs Depicted', includes working dogs, companions, jackals, wolves and mythical monsters in works of art from all cultures and in media as diverse as ancient Egyptian gold amulets, ivory netsuke, a painting by Stubbs and a Late Minoan jasper seal.
