Delightful Illustrated Posters Are a Guide to 192 Dogs of the World

Our favorite types of dogs come from all over the world, and illustrator Lili Chin would know – she's drawn nearly 200 of them! Starting in the summer of 2014, she presented the series Dogs of The World, which is a collection of 192 canine breeds grouped by their geographical location and country. The illustrative posters feature cartoon-style characters that highlight the unique appearance of each dog.

Chin has drawn canines native to England, France, and the Mediterranean, just to name a few. Her series is not only well-crafted – we enjoy seeing all of the unique personalities that Chin conveys – but there's an educational component to it as well. By simply glancing at her posters, you can easily see where the different dog breeds originated.

If you enjoy Dogs of The World, you can purchase prints of it in Chin's Etsy shop. Mugs, t-shirts, and even shower curtains featuring the canines are also available in her Society6 store. The popularity of this series will be followed by The Mutt Collection, so keep your eye out for it in the coming months.
