This little piggy went to market, and this little piggy went to the catwalk ...And what wonderful models our porcine friends turned out to be! The result is this stunning collection of portraits of pigs strutting their stuff as only creatures weighing up to 500lb apiece can. Featuring commissioned studio photography of championship breeds styled to perfection prior to competition, the animals here just love to hog the limelight. The top breeds from around the world are represented - from the graceful Large Black to the aristocratic Tamworth and the much-travelled Kune-Kune - with graphic charts containing all the essential breed information. There's also a potted history of pigs, plus reportage photography oif the behind-the-scenes primping and preening at the agricultural shows, to capture the care that is lavished on the prizewinning pigs and the nail-biting judging process. This is a book to gladden the hearts of pig-lovers, be they city dwellers with a trotter in the country or country dwellers with a dozen trotters in the farm yard. Packed with visual and textual breed information, it is a unique gift book to make every reader feel, well, happy as a pig in muck...
