Dear Dad is one of those books that you want to always keep near and thumb through often. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this book is a treasure chest of tribute to one of the most important relationships of life. In its pages are pictures from all over the world, covering every imaginable way of life and every area, showing, in some way, the impact of a father or grandfather. And at the end of the book is a gallery of thumbnail prints of all the pictures with the information about the picture’s background (almost as interesting as the pictures themselves!)
Dear Dad is published by Chronicle Books, a publisher I’d not heard about prior to being contacted. Additional info about them is below, but judging from this and a couple other books whose reviews are coming in the near future, I am impressed and can see why they are so highly regarded!
