Dog Dreams



Originally printed by hand in a limited letterpress edition of 100 copies at the SF Center for the Book, Dog Dreams is a labor of love from the mind of author, artist, and printer Michael Wertz. The vibrantly colorful, engaging shapes in the board book pop out from the page in retro red and cyan that evokes a 60s feel.

The narrative of the book imagines the many places man’s best friend may go during a long dog nap — from Tracy’s dream of a rooftop tap dance to Dooey’s evening cup of coffee on top of his new French chateau. This unique title is a work of pure joy and celebration of animal companions and is the perfect gift for any dog lover.

Michael Wertz is a multi-media artist whose work has been recognized by Communication Arts, American Illustration, and the Society of Illustrators. He lives and works in Oakland, CA with his husband, Andrew and dog, Olive. Board book.
