Lost 15TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
(50 items available)
Despite all the visual distractions of the digital age, one low-tech form of mass communication remains as popular as ever: the lost pet poster. For more than a decade, artist and animal lover Ian Phillips collected lost and found posters from around the world. Lost features the most notable selections from Phillips's collection chosen for their cleverness, humour, sorrow, entreaties, rewards, and - in several instances - sheer outlandishness. Featuring a veritable Noah's ark of animals - from everyday pets such as dogs, cats, hamsters, and turtles to more unusual companions, including ferrets, parrots, cows, and cockatiels - these remarkable posters are their own form of folk art. Telling tales of friendship, loss, and hope, they are a powerful testament to the love and devotion shared by pet owners.
