About this book

This beautiful collection of portraits shows sheep as you have never seen them before – polished, preened and styled to perfection prior to competition. The elegance and quirkiness of these adorable champion breeds is captured perfectly in the stunning studio photography by leading fashion photographer, Paul Farnham. Vet Kathryn Dun, Honorary Secretary for the Sheep Veterinary Society, has provided the informative text.

Customer Reviews


Kathryn Dun is Honorary Secretary for the Sheep Veterinary Society. She qualified as a vet at the Royal School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh in 1992. She returned to the school in 1994 and works there as a farm vet in the farm animal teaching practice. While on duty there in 1997, she assisted with the delivery of Dolly, the famous cloned sheep. Kathryn helps show her family's North Country Cheviots and Scotch Mules at numerous events, including the Royal Highland Show.

Paul Farnham learnt the art of fashion photography by working alongside the likes of Bryan Adams, Annie Liebowitz and Brigitte Lacombe. He now has an impressive portfolio of clients including Burberry, Oyster and Dansk. Paul's renowned ability to make his models feel relaxed in front of the camera was fully tested by the unique demands of applying fashion photography techniques to some unusual catwalk models in Beautiful Sheep.

Media reviews

"Like the mousey girl in the movie who removes her glasses with a scenic flourish to reveal that she is, in fact, a ravishing beauty, the humblest creature in farming has had a surprise make over and is demanding to be adored. Welcome to the strange new world of Beautiful Sheep [...] Sheep in these pages are not mutton dressed as lamb, but the reverse. Preened, washed, beautified and posed, they are presented at last as aesthetic objects: tranquil, perfectly-formed and surprisingly lovely."
- Daily Telegraph

"[Paul's] flair combined with Kathryn's expertise make this a delightful and unusual book."
- Cumbria Life

"Fabulously quirky, we're already debating our favourite shot."
- Glasgow Herald
