Cat Book started out simply enough. Emily Weinstein set out to do a series of monoprints of cats she knew personally. As she explored her subjects she saw that each cat had a story. So she wrote the stories down, and began hearing of fascinating cats farther afield. The trail led from North Carolina up the East Coast to New York City, where she was able to pain the much-heralded Brooklyn heroine cat, Scarlett, who rescued her five kittens from a ravaging fire. Other cats depicted include Snappy, who has sailed around the world; Wild Boy, feral in the High Sierras; the talking feline Regis, and Max, who has learned to box. It’s all great fun—and wonderful art!

About the Author

Emily Weinstein was born in 1955 in Newburgh, New York. Her formal art education took place in France, England and Richmond, Virginia. She developed further as an artist during a two-year sojourn across America, painting the unwinding scenery, the Calendar Series (in which she did a painting a day for a year), four artist-in-residencies and her two businesses: Pet & People Portraiture and Murals-By-Many.

At this writing the author is building a studio/gallery/house which she co-designed out of aerated cement and recycled components. Weinstein resides in Durham, North Carolina, with cats Opal, Zia, Casey and Roma and the terrier-mix, Daisy Mae.

I found 'cat Book' by Emily Weinstein to be an enchanting compilation of stories and paintings focused on the love affairs between cat owners and their feline family members. These everyday and direct stories are humanism at their best, with the joys and pains engendered by all relationships. Her writing illuminates the nuances of communication between a cat and their caregiver. A cat owner needs an entire repetoire of communication skills to employ in living with another living being, even though it may be a cat. Humor and love abound so that at the end of the day,the cat owner will say 'But this is what makes it all worthwhile.' IN addition I have fallen in love with Emily Weinstein for what she sees and understands and is able to share as an artist and person. Whether writing or painting about the full moon in 'Moon Book' or about cats in 'cat Book', her intelligence, artistic vision, and openmindedness are endearing.
