Equitainment's Comments

As soon as Jody showed me this book I just had to buy it. I love researching the history of the horse and this book had pictures of artifacts and art that are very old. Catherine(author) goes into a lot of thought and details but not in such length that your bored with it.

Beautifully illustrated and well set out book, I dont think this book will ever age and wow I have a First Edition to keep which is a lovely bonus.

Product Overview

In this beautifully illustrated book, Catherine Johns explores the horse in art from the ancient world to the modern era.

The themes are presented in stunning four-colour illustrations that trace our perceptions of the horse through time and space, and convey the wide variety of images that have been created of this magnificent creature: in colossal and life-sized sculpture, in paintings, and in minuscule form on coins, gems, and jewelry: and from the world of ancient Greece, and Rome to the arts of India, Africa, China and Japan.
