 This is a wonderful book for dachshund lovers!  I had seen line drawings of dachshunds by Picasso in a gift book my son received and this has extremely precious photographs of Picasso and his adorable dachshund, Lump...


  1. This is a terrific book Mary -- David Douglas Duncan completely captured Picasso in this and many other books. I think it's great you highlighted it!
