Ralph Steadman, artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance, and longtime unsentimental cat lover, here shows us cats everywhere: cats in furniture, cat dictators, T. S. Eliot cats and Samuel Johnson cats, fashion cats and CATalogs, blot cats, splat cats, and fallen-from-skyscraper cats. There are bugs that live on cats, and uninvented cats, too.

Overview


Ralph Steadman, artist of distinction, caricaturist of brilliance, and longtime unsentimental cat lover, here shows us cats everywhere: cats in furniture, cat dictators, T. S. Eliot cats and Samuel Johnson cats, fashion cats and CATalogs, 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 as Steadman exposes the heart and bone and sinew of these most independent and lovable pets.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
You'll immediately recognize—and likely relish—Steadman's rawboned and contentious-looking cats, but he's also illustrated books ranging from Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to the 50th-anniversary edition of George Orwell's Animal Farm. With 150 four-color illustrations; Steadman's work is classic.
