In this charming, amusing and outlandish book, Ralph Steadman turns his unflinching eye - and his ruthless pen - to cats of all varieties.
Ralph Steadman - artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance and long-time unsentimental cat-lover here shows us cats everywhere. Cats in furniture; cat dictators; T. S. Eliot cats and Samuel Johnson cats; fashion cats and CATalogues; blot cats; splat cats and fallen-from-skyscraper cats. There are bugs that live on cats and uninvented cats, too. Ranging from the fierce and furious to the whimsical and wistful, the whole world of feline life is here.
In a cat book like no other, there is nothing soppy about Steadman's eye as he exposes the heart and bone and sinew of these most independent and lovable pets.
Ralph Steadman was born in 1936. He began his career as a cartoonist and through the years diversified into many fields of creativity. He has illustrated such classics as Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island and Animal Farm.
