In her latest book, Lesley Anne Ivory introduces us to the world of the feline zodiac. Ivory has written the accompanying text, explaining astrological influences as they affect both humans and cats and using the cats featured in her paintings as examples. These cats, including Ivory's own and those of her friends, were chosen for their astrological appropriateness and painted in settings applicable to their signs.
Images of suns, moons, stars, and elements decorate each painting, together with related attributes such as gemstones, animals, flowers, fruits, colors, herbs, and spices. These symbols are summarized in an illustrated "key", along with information about the sources of artistic and historical inspiration behind each of the paintings. Ivory's devotion to her feline subjects, the rich coloring and extraordinary precision of the paintings, and their multiplicity of astrological and other motifs make this her most original and visually spectacular book to date.
