As an artist, a cat has no home in the world save Paris. (To paraphrase Nietzsche.) Here is the story of Paintbrush, the cat in a bow tie who leaves family, friends, and the Midwest behind to chase a dream of artistic fulfillment. Engagingly illustrated throughout with bright, cheerful watercolors and written in a charming style to match, Paintbrish in Paris is the first book by Jill Butler, a designer and collagist. In it she follows Paintbrush from his first excursions beyond his atelier to the invitation to show his work.
