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).
