The Cow - A Tribute
The Cow is probably the most comprehensive work ever produced about the cattle of the world. With aesthetically stunning images, the book also contains all kinds of fascinating information about the origins, habitats and character of cows.
They have fed and warmed us, clothed and supported us for the last 10,000 years.These animals have achieved the unimaginable and have never let us down. If wild cattle had not been domesticated, the success story of Homo sapiens as we know it
would not have been possible.
This book is a homage and declaration of love from organic pioneer Werner Lampert to the oldest breeds of cow and the wild cattle on our Earth. It is an appeal to protect the diversity of species and to take greater care of these sacred creatures which can
be both members of the family and a source of food, because, as a result of intensive livestock farming, they are threatened with extinction.
Join Werner Lampert and his team of photographers on their incredible journey to find the rarest cows and the roots of our civilization.
“For thousands of years, they have crossed continents with us, traversed mountain ranges and seas with us: our loyal, ever-devoted and supportive fellow travelers.We should be bound by affection for our close companion, the cow.”
