Book Description

First published as a run of just 500 copies in 1986, Cathy is a collection of photographs by John Carder Bush of his sister Kate as a young girl, with accompanying text. This new edition includes a new introduction by John Carder Bush, illustrated with eight previously unpublished photographs.

Product Description


Before the Dawn was a magical mix of wild imagination, playful theatricality and intimate, homespun pleasures and the same elements are all evident in Cathy . . . beautifully presented, with a detail of each image first glimpsed through a window in the preceding page. (Telegraph)

As a unique insight into the world of the young Kate Bush, Cathy is fascinating . . . Page by page, it makes for an absorbing body of work which, as John Carder Bush puts it in the book, reveals 'the child with the woman in her eyes' (Mojo)

A luxuriously clothbound slipcase edition of childhood photos of Kate Bush, with annotations by the photographer, her older brother. If ever the roots of an artist were revealed in their youthful manner, it's here: surrounded by hippy music, adopting dress-up chracterisations with alacrity and already starting, haunted, into the distance, she's a natural performer in search of a stage. (Independent)

Book Description

The iconic collection of photographs of Kate Bush as a young girl, taken by her brother, the photographer and writer John Carder Bush.

I was so excited to hear about about the re-release of Cathy, as I didn't get it the first time around, and it has far exceeded my expectations. What an extraordinarily beautiful book! The photographs are enigmatic, atmospheric, stunningly framed and give an intimate insight into the early life of Kate. And the text is wonderfully written too, deeply moving and almost poetic in places. The whole product oozes luxury and the linen cover and slipcase is particularly lush - a must buy for any Kate fan!

As has been said this is a beautiful book. I used to do a little photography a long time ago and feel the quality of the prints is just right - atmospheric just like the lady's music. Buy it!

I bought this book for my wife who is a great Bush fan, it chronicles the life of Kate, with pictures of her from childhood, it is written and photographed by her brother and the photos are very good, if you are a fan of Bush you will like this if not it may convert you.
