Equus (Mini)Abrams Books
No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless rendering in paint, clay, ink, even film. In his first book, award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal—as a solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater—whose history is so powerfully linked to our own. This highly successful book, originally published in 2008, is now available in a new, more affordable format.
From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to the purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horse’s lash-lined eye, to the thundering majesty of thousands of mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.
