Moo: A book of happiness for cow lovers - Angus St John Galloway
Cows are my passion. What I have ever sighed for has been to retreat to a Swiss farm, and live entirely surrounded by cows – and china. – Charles Dickens
Cows are one of the most common farm animals on earth, but what many people don’t realise is that they are also gentle creatures with a uniquely inquisitive nature. Moo is a collection of quotes from the famous and not-so famous, paired with charming photographs that celebrate the humble cow.
From Thomas de Quincey to Mary Quant, cows have fascinated writers, philosophers, fashion designers, film stars and musicians for centuries. They are hugely sociable creatures, with several strange habits, such as being able to sleep while standing, and spending up to eight hours a day chewing. Moo will open your eyes to their immense variety, their joyfulness, and their surprising tenderness.
With photos of over 70 of the world’s most popular cattle breeds, this is the perfect gift for anyone from bovine experts to folks who happen to find cows cute (you’ll be surprised by how many famous names agree!).
Pick up Moo today and gain an endearing, amusing insight into the magic of these animals that are absolutely integral to our lives.
