I received a copy of Bob Langrish’s World of Horses through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

What an absolutely striking collection of photographs. The subtitle for this book is very accurately named; Bob Langrish set out to photograph the most magnificent horses in the world, and he certainly succeeded. These photographs are absolutely beautiful – words cannot do them justice.

I honestly would have been happy having this book simply be a collection of these wonderful photographs. However, they took things a few steps farther. For one thing all the photographs are nicely organized into neat categories. This helped the flow and kept themes going throughout, so it was a nice tough. Additionally each horse was accompanied by a map showing the location of where they can be found. This was not something I expected to find here, but it was very much appreciated. It really goes to show that sometimes going above and beyond really can enhance the showing of a collection.

I honestly believe that any fans of horses or of Bob Langrish’s work would really appreciate reading this. The photos are beautiful, the maps and details informative. This would make for a really nice gift as well – especially for the young horse enthusiast in your life (we all know somebody like that).

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
