Product Description

From Amazon

Rodney Dale shows his cat-loving credentials right from the start--and why not? "Pussydom," as he puts it, is a marvelous thing, and artists have long been inspired by feline grace and danger (his first example being a stalking, elongated beast from the 8th-century Lindisfarne Gospels). Dale's high-gloss survey packs in fine art from da Vinci and Dürer as well as some startling children's book illustrations. It also extends to this century's ailurophiles, from Dr. Seuss's skinny troublemaker to Ronald Searle's chubbies to B. Kliban's none-too-slim smart alec. And the author manages to include a surprising amount of fact amid this quadruped fancy. Here he is, for example, on Cardinal Richelieu: "It is, perhaps, disappointing to learn that, as soon as his current set of kittens started to grow up and lose their playfulness, the careworn cardinal pensioned them off and sent for some new ones." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Rodney Dale is a lifelong cat lover and the author of over thirty volumes, including the first biography of cat illustrator Louis Wain (1860–1939).

Very informative March 29 2000

Format: Hardcover
This little book is loaded with images from books of different ages, all about cats. As I turned the pages, it was as if I was strolling through the history of art and literature. I found very interesting how different artists chose to depict felines through the ages, and how this changes according to each artist's backgroung and time.
