Black Dog & Leventhal

Black Dog & Leventhal Black Dog & Leventhal aims to bring you the best of illustrated nonfiction books.

One of the finest compliments we ever received was one from a gentleman who was browsing through our books at a book show a few years ago. He said, “I don’t have to have any of your books, but I sure want a lot of them.” Whether you’re talking about The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker, The Elements, The Annotated Godfather, Take Me Out to the Ballpark, Country Wisdom and Know-How, A Child’s Introduction to the Ballet, or The Louvre: All the Paintings, Black Dog & Leventhal books represent hours of reading and visual pleasure for book lovers of all types. We publish strikingly original books of light reference, humor, cooking, sports, music, film and entertainment, mysteries, history and biography and much, much more. Many of them are in unusual formats and many are rich with color and imagery. Some are just for curling up with, some sharpen your mind, some teach valuable skills, while others are just pure pleasure. There is something for everybody. Enjoy! —JP Leventhal, Publisher

It's really brilliant: books for children are so packed with digestible information you too could learn a thing or three! #AllAges #Entertain #Educate #FactsareFun

If you’re trying to learn something and are having trouble reading an adult-focused reference book on the topic, consider opting for the children’s version instead.

107 years ago, at 11:40pm The Titanic hit the iceberg. Only a few hours later on April 15 it sank. Among the tragic victims of this notorious event there was only one first class passenger: Ann Isham. She refused to enter the lifeboats because to do so would mean abandoning her beloved dog, a Great Dane, to a watery fate. Kudos to Red: A History of the Redhead'/ The Animal's Companion author Jacky Colliss Harvey for this fascinating historical fact.

Tomorrow is the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. What has this to do with our history as pet-owners, I hear you ask? I'll tell you - Ann Isham, one of only four 1st-class women passengers to die in the disaster, who refused a seat in a life-boat because her dog, a Great Dane, could not be saved as well. Here she is. Animals connect us - to them, to each other, and to our shared human history.

Cats Know Their Own Names but Don't Want You to Know

Call me by my name? #TheAnimalsCompanion Red: A History of the Redhead

A new study suggests that cats can recognize their name from a string of words. Despite cats often ignoring their owners the research from Japan seems to prove they do know when they are being called.
