The hard plastic post-surgery cone is every dog’s worst nightmare. But in this stunning collection by celebrated photographer Winnie Au and designer Marie-Yan Morvan, it becomes an iconic statement of personality and visual wit. Each dog featured in this book models a bespoke cone made from unique materials—everything from eggshells to repurposed pool noodles to luxe suede and silk flowers.
These works of art are designed to amplify the one-of-a-kind charm and self-possessed dignity that makes every dog special and charming in their own way. As hilarious as it is beautiful, Cone of Shame is a showcase of the unmatched power of dogs to inspire joy, devotion, and unconditional love.
