More Description

Cats in Books is the perfect -- and perfectly priced -- gift for feline fanciers and bibliophiles alike. Within its beautifully illustrated pages are some of the finest depictions of cats as they have appeared in books over more than 1,000 years. Some, like Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat, are well known; others, such as the 8th-century cats in the Irish illuminated masterpiece the Book of Kells, may be new to many readers.

All cat illustrators have a common goal: to capture the character of this notoriously elusive animal. Found here is the work of Edward Lear, creator of The Owl and the Pussycat, and of Beatrix Potter, whose delicate creatures are eternal favorites, along with that of Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Durer, Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley, George Herriman, and many more.

Here too are images by artists whose illustrations are indelibly associated with certain literary works: Sir John Tenniel's classic Cheshire Cat for Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Edward Gorey's version of T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, and Fred Marcellino's recent rendering of Charles Perrault's Puss in Boots, to name but a few.
