The promotional blurb for this extremely sophisticated art book reads as follows: 'REVELATIONS AND DOG is the second title in Mark Batty Publisher's ongoing series that invites today's best artists to reinvent the biblical story of end times in the medium and manner they see fit. In Revelations and Dog, artist Michael Caines renders the phantasmagoric tale with a cast of demented animals, at times humorous and at times horrid. Caines' vision of strange creatures and political monsters breathes new life into the Revelation story.' Yes, that tells the shopper what to expect from content and theme, but this book is in every way a fine work of art: for a book that is a parody of the Book of Revelations in the Bible, it is bound like a Bible complete with gold embossed printing for the title. But what lies inside is some very fine art work and illustration and sociopolitical statements that are bound to be as controversial as the original Revelations book in the Bible!

First, Michael Caines is one fine artist. His ability to draw, to paint, and to weave myth and history and predictions in the form of his imagery found on every page of this fine book is no less than astonishing. Yes, the bits and pieces of phrases and predictions of Revelations are reinterpreted as being peopled with animals, but among the 'animals' are the photorealistic heads of many well known people - Stalin, Cheney, Bush, the Pope, bin Laden, etc - as the seven heads of the beast that rises from the sea, and most entertaining is the harlot Babylon who is none other than Sarah Palin! The threats of Revelations end of the world have never been more poignant!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wildly Wicked, Funny, and Tongue in Cheek View of Revelations 3 May 2011

But less the reader is put off by this kind of political cartooning of the highest order, then rest assured that the bulk of the book is filed with dogs, cats, mice, lions, serpents, winged deer, eagles, sheep, poodles - name it, it is here. Michael Caines is an artistic force with whom to contend. Watch for his works to gain in popularity after this mesmerizing and brilliantly designed and crafted art book! Grady Harp, May11
