Maira Kalman has long been a favorite of The Birch Store with her delightful illustrations and thoughtful insights. From the dogs lovingly illustrated in her acclaimed children’s books to the real-life pets who inspire her still, Kalman’s Beloved Dog is joyful, beautifully illustrated, and, as always, deeply philosophical.
"This book is a compendium of, and tribute to, the many dogs I have encountered over the years, in life and in books.
They are constant reminders that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend our unconditional love. And it is very true that the most tender, uncomplicated, most generous part of our being blossoms, without any effort, when it comes to the love of a dog." - Maira Kallman
