Canine Chronicles: 1900-2000, A Century of History’s Most Notable Dogs

This faux history of notable dogs imagines the canine counterparts to figures of historical import (think the never-was childhood canine companion to a young Mark Twain or the imaginary Shiba Inu inspiration behind 80s video game classic, Space Invaders). Decked out in period attire and sets befitting their era (late 70s television sets and wood paneling; a 1920 Coco Chanel get-up of stripes, a boater hat, and the requisite strand of pearls), Winnie Au’s dog models embody their age in charmingly silly-yet-dignified photographs that capture the dogs in all their period glory. Matched to the photographs are made up stories relating these unsung canine figures remarkable contributions to history that children and adults alike will enjoy.
