Shear Spirit deserves particular praise for the photography. Did I mention the photography? The photography is awesome. Gale Zucker (of She Shoots Sheep Shots) is on deck as the photographer for this book. Every knitting book should use Zucker. I'm totally serious about that.
Zucker is well known in the online knitting world, and rightfully so. Her sheep pictures alone are worth the price of admission. Somehow, Zucker manages to make sheep look even more wonderful than they really are. These candid photos of bemused sheep faces are so vivid and spontaneous, you feel like you could reach out and pet them.
