Review quote

Like the mousey girl in the movie who removes her glasses with a scenic flourish to reveal that she is, in fact, a ravishing beauty, the humblest creature in farming has had a surprise make over and is demanding to be adored. Welcome to the strange new world of Beautiful Sheep... Sheep in these pages are not mutton dressed as lamb, but the reverse. Preened, washed, beautified and posed, they are presented at last as aesthetic objects: tranquil, perfectly-formed and surprisingly lovely. Daily Telegraph [Paul's] flair combined with Kathryn's expertise make this a delightful and unusual book. Cumbria Life Fabulously quirky, we're already debating our favourite shot.
