Black and White by Dahlov Ipcar

Black and White is about a friendship between a black dog and a white dog. When they fall asleep they have wild dreams, where towering elephants, polar bears, giant sail boats and great whales fill their imaginations.

Black and White was originally published in 1963 by Alfred A. Knopf, during the US civil rights movement. The book was intended to promote equality during a time of political unrest.

You cannot ignore the striking beauty of this book. As you can see from the photos, the artwork is incredible! Flying Eye Books have meticulously and faithfully restored it to bring back the quality of the original.

Black and White is the third book in Flying Eye’s Dahlov Ipcar series.

Look out for my upcoming reviews of I Like Animals and The Wonderful Egg.
