At once touching, ethereal and warm, Rachael's unique viewpoint has made her one of the most successful animal photographers in the world today. When she recently embarked on a new life in France, it was inevitable that she would turn her talents to capturing the beauty of the new world around her. The result has been two stunning new books, The French Cat and The French Dog, in which Rachael has captured a host of captivating felines and canines in a variety of stunning locations, from stately chateaux, to chic Parisian addresses, to cobblestoned streets in quaint villages. These mini editions are the charming follow-ups to these highly popular books, with Rachael's stunning image accented by ephemera and quotes from famous French dog and cat lovers and literary greats.
