Take a Peek at the Perfect Gift Book: EQUUS by Tim Flach

As the holiday season dawns, please take a look at a few sample images from our featured gift book for 2008. EQUUS by Tim Flach is a deceptively simple name for an extraordinary collection of images of the horse. Just the horse. Not always the whole horse. And a collection like you have never seen before.

This will be the feature book in the Hoofcare booth at the AAEP convention in San Diego next week. If you can't be there to order one, reserve your copy now.

Specifications: Hardcover with heavyweight jacket, 14.3 x 11.3 x 1.5", (huge!), 300 thick pages of new ways to look at a horse.

Cost: $60 per book. $12 shipping in USA. No overseas orders as this book is too heavy for air mail.

To order: Fax orders to 978 283 8775. Phone orders to 978 281 3222 (office closed 12/5 to 12/12 for AAEP convention). Mail orders to Hoofcare Books, 19 Harbor Loop, Gloucester MA 01930.

Payment: Checks payable to Hoofcare Books in US funds only. Visa or Mastercard accepted (need account number and expiry date).

Fulfilment subject to availability.

All orders subject to the schedules, delays and whims inherent in the US postal system.

EQUUS is stunning, thought-provoking and inspirational, without any text to get in the way of your own reactions. (Although there is text elsewhere in the book, should you care to read more.) This book has no connection to the magazine by the same name.

This book will never grow old. You will, but this book will grow with you. You'll see it again for the first time, every time you open it.

And you'll know horses as you never have before.

I will try to post more images from this amazing book but these are among my favorites that feature the hoof.
