About This Item

New York: Barnes & Noble Books, 2004. First edition of this magnificent collection of Van Otteren's stunning equine portraits. Quarto, original boards, illustrated with 78 black and white photographs by Juliet Van Otteren. Presentation copy, inscribed by Van Otteren on the half-title page, "Enjoy your journey thru Salutations, Juliet." Foreword by Jane Goodall. Text by Alan Lightman. Fine in a fine dust jacket. In this extraordinarily beautiful collection of photographs, Juliet van Otteren has captured perfectly the power and the grace and the fluid movements of horses. The images perfectly illustrate what Winston Churchill meant when he said, 'there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of man'" (Jane Goodall, Foreword).
