Quincy, the Hobby Photographer
The dapper Quincy tells all in this light-hearted introduction to the art of photographing dogs. He's generous with helpful hints, like "You can stop to smell the roses but dogs don't hold poses" and mindful of the smallest details such as allowing the subject to sniff the camera. To top it off, Quincy shares his favourite pictures from the field in a quirky slide presentation. In his inimitable style, J. Otto Seibold delivers a book overflowing with humour, part silly, part off-the-cuff instruction manual. "Quincy, the Hobby Photographer" is an ideal gift for dog lovers and for photo enthusiasts of all ages.

PRAISE FOR J.OTTO SEIBOLD "Seibold's skills as an artist are on a par with the poetic powers of a Pulitzer Prize winner like [Richard] Wilbur [in "The Pig in the Spigot"] . . . an auspicious pairing of artist and writer that both parent and child can enjoy many times over."--"The New York Times Book Review" "Eye-catching . . . Seibold's obsessive inclusion of excessive graphic minutiae throughout his tableaus is what makes his "Alice" ["in (Pop-up) Wonderland"] totally engrossing and worth reading more than once."--Steven Heller, "The New York Times" "
