About This Book
The Instagram photographs of the glamorous life of Neville, social-media superstar and esteemed companion of the fashion designer Marc Jacobs. With classic images from his popular Instagram account as well as outtakes, carefully styled shots from Neville’s "fashion editorials," and candid snapshots of Neville and Marc together, Neville Jacobs is a treat for any dog lover and a delight for anyone with equal fascination for fashion and dogs alike. Dubbed "the hardest working dog in fashion" by T Magazine, Neville Jacobs—the sweet-natured bull terrier belonging to the ubiquitous Marc Jacobs—is, in the canine world at least, fast becoming as popular as his owner. Drawing on hundreds of photographs taken of Neville from puppyhood to today, this charming book not only captures the character of one charismatic animal, but also sheds light (and some fur) on the busy and glamorous world of a downtown New York dog. From the Marc Jacobs offices (where Neville plays a key role) to the streets of SoHo, the dog runs of Manhattan, and even private jets to exotic vacations, Neville’s life is a whirlwind the likes of which most dogs could only twitch their paws and dream of. Surrounded by beloved friends, both human and canine—from fashion icons like Christy Turlington and Karlie Kloss to Choo Choo Charlie, the French bulldog from whom he is inseparable—Neville brings joy and his unmistakable energy to every adventure.

“ . . . chronicles the canine's daily life, which consists largely of jaunts around Soho with Hanne Gaby Odiele, trips on wood-paneled private jets with other furry companions, and cuddles with Christy Turlington and Karlie Kloss. Oh, and he's an activist, too.” —W Magazine
“The book, titled Neville Jacobs: I’m Marc’s Dog, is set for release in September, and seems like it’ll boast vast biographical scope, as it’s quoted in the New York Observer as “chronicling his life ‘from puppyhood to today.'” The book is “written” by Nicholas Newbold — who’ll surely be able to provide accurate documentation of Neville’s life for those interested, given that he’s also the manager of the dog’s Instagram account — and Marc Jacobs himself.” —FlavorWire.com
“Though we were unable to get Neville on the phone, the dog promised to release previews of the book via social media in the weeks to come. And in case you're wondering: Yes, Choupette has already written her own magnum opus. And no word on any upcoming collaborations.” —BravoTV.com
“This – as his forthcoming tome entitled Neville Jacobs: I'm Marc's Dog (Rizzoli), reveals – includes such duties as hobnobbing with supermodels, collaborating with the industry's foremost creative luminaries, sampling some of the world's most elegant custom-canine separates, and globe-trotting with his master in a private jet.” —Anothermag.com
"Drawing on hundreds of Instagram photos of the bull terrier, from puppyhood to the present, the book captures the ins and outs of the fetching furball's glamorous life, from his many modeling gigs to off-duty downtime." —Hint Magazine

"Featuring highlights of Neville’s life from his puppy days to now, as well as some fabulously fashion-forward friends, you can’t help but love Neville as much as Jacobs, who says that Neville fills his heart with joy and calms him down like nothing or no one ever does." —PetGuide.com
"This fall, Marc Jacob’s charming bull terrier, Neville Jacobs, shines as the subject of his first biography, Neville Jacobs: I’m Marc’s Dog . . . It’s a collection of photographs documenting the life of the famous designer’s pooch, and if you’re a sucker for dogs, consider this your fall must-read." —InStyle Magazine
"While Marc Jacobs recently wrapped a successful New York Fashion Week, his famous bull terrier, Neville Jacobs is releasing his first book . . . Neville's 248-page book features 200 photos—a compilation from editorial shoots and his Instagram (which boasts 195,000 followers)." —Forbes.com
"Designer Marc Jacobs’ incredibly stylish bull terrier, who boasts not one but two NYC billboard appearances, doesn’t actually work in fashion, per se, but rather keeps spirits high at home and in the office. His multi-faceted role, as explained by co-owner Nick Newbold, involves patience, kindness, cuddling up with people, and, of course, being fed treats. When Neville isn’t out with his colleague Choo Choo Charlie the French bulldog, he can be found napping on a floor of his choosing at the company or rummaging through garbage cans. Neville can also add "published author" to his resume, having recently released his very own book, I’m Marc’s Dog." —Thrillist.com
