Beautiful Pigs

Author(s): Andy Case


" Beautiful Pigs presents pigs as you have never seen them before - primped, polished and looking positively gorgeous. Every aspect of porcine elegance has been captured here in glorious full-colour photography. In this beautifully illustrated and ground-breaking book, porcine glamour takes centre stage. The top breeds from around the world are represented - from graceful Large Black to the aristocratic Tamworth and the much-travelled Kune Kune - with graphic charts containing all the essential breed information. There's also a potted history of pigs, plus reportage photography of the behind-the-scenes primping and preening at the agricultural shows, to capture the care that is lavished on prizewinning pigs and the nail-biting judging process. This is a book to gladden the heart of pig-lovers the world over, whether they be city dwellers with a trotter in the country or country dwellers with a dozen trotters in the farm yard. Packed with visual and textual breed information, it is a unique giftbook guaranteed to make every reader feel, well, happy as a pig in muck..."
