• The Reality Bubble – Ziya Tong

Animals live in the same world we do, but they see something quite different. We are blind compared to those that see in infrared, ultraviolet or with 360-degree vision. The Reality Bubble illuminates this hidden world and takes us on a journey to examine ten of the biggest blind spots of modern society and humanity. Fast-paced, utterly fascinating and deeply humane, this vitally important new book proves there is more to the world than meets the eye.

  • Faces: Profiles of Dogs – Vita Sackville-West

Over the years Vita Sackville-West had many dogs, including Cocker Spaniel Pippin, mother of Virginia Woolf’s Spaniel, Pinka and Alsatian Rollo, whose photograph hangs in Sissinghurst Castle. Faces traces the origins and history of forty-four breeds, reflecting on their characteristics with frank humour. Charming and fascinating in equal measure, this collection of profiles is testament to the fact that, ‘when one loves dogs, it is difficult not to attribute human qualities to them’.
