News From Booth-Clibborn Editions

'They say the reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue and that is particularly true of a Jack Russell.

The perky little terriers and their larger-than-life personalities have had packs of fans ever since they were first bred by the Reverend John Russell, a keen huntsman, in the 19th century.  Apparently he so liked the spots on Trump, his milkman's little helper, that he bought her and went on to establish a line that became a recognised breed by 1850.  Their irrepressible energy and bright-eyed intelligencwe certainly caught the eye of photographer Andy Hughes who has produced a captivating little bok.  It is packed with his shots of Jack Russells peering and posing, barking and snoozing, playing and running.  If this book doesn't make you smile, check your pulse for signs of life.'    The Mail on Sunday January 13th 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

News From Booth-Clibborn Editions

Following its successful publication in June 2011, The History of the Saatchi Gallery was picked as one of the Art Books of the Year by Jackie Wullschlager, in The Financial Times on November 26th

"A deluxe updated edition, newly introduced by Edward Booth-Clibborn, of this century's most significant contemporary art book. So influential has Saatchi been as collector-curator that his taste became world taste; the 700 works illustrated from among thousands he has owned since the 1970s tell this mesmerising tale, amplified by incisive essays from Norman Rosenthal and scorner-turned-admirer Brian Sewell."
