In Almost Every Picture

Photo by Pat Padua
While in Utrecht for the international Minding Animals conference my eye was caught by a pink book with a picture of of pig being bottle fed at a restaurant on the cover. Turned out that this book was volume 10 in a series published by Kesselskramer Publishing (here) called "In Almost Every Picture." This volume contains photos collected by Michel Campeau taken between 1938 and 1973 at Au Lutin Qui Bouffe, a restaurant in Montreal, where feeding a piglet was the restaurant's gimmick. The photos are charming, as is the design of the book by Erik Kessels. I wish I'd known of these images prior to finishing PIG, as it would have been great to have included one of them.
