Must-Have Book: ‘Insta Grammar Dogs’

As an Instagram aficionado — especially when it comes to accounts chronicling dogs and cats — I’m psyched to see a book that brings the medium into print. Insta Grammar Dogs from Lannoo Publishing (an imprint of ACC Publishing) features photos of adorable pups and inspirational quotes from the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Mark Twain, Barack Obama and Kevin O’Leary, among others.

What inspired author Irene Schampaert to bring the digital feed to a photo book? “I’ve been an Instagram fan for years, for various reasons,” she says. “It’s an excellent source of inspiration on different levels, it’s an efficient way to showcase your work and attract interested ones. And it’s nice to use it as some sort of diary. It seemed like a good idea to grab this nonstop stream of images and perpetuate it on paper. As a graphic designer, it felt like a challenge to make a strong selection and turn different images from different accounts into a whole.”

The 115 photos range from funny — a city dog in an Uncle Sam getup staring at a hot dog — to artsy — a dog pondering a bright blue balloon animal dog against a contrastingly stark white backdrop.

It’s the perfect addition to the coffee table in any dog lover’s home. The book is available on Amazon or ACC Publishing.
