HASH(0xa15c2714) out of 5 stars For the ailurophilic art lover 5 July 2012
By K. Lowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was a real delight, a compendium of cat history through art and literature. A breezy, fun read, great for a cat person on a car trip. Not much in-depth information, but plenty of factual tidbits and beautiful illustrations for casual readers to enjoy.

HASH(0x8acaad50) out of 5 stars Beautiful, but Textually Disappointing 17 Jun. 2015
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been waiting to read this book for some time, and I was sadly disappointed in it. The illustrations are exquisite and plentiful, but the writing left something to be desired - which made me wonder if it was matter of being lost in translation? The content was fragmentary, and rather derogatory and confusing.I had a difficult time following what the author was trying to make of depictions of cats through the history of books, as it often seemed a slap-dash rambling of titles, without the satisfaction of explication or analysis. I felt a palpable and awkward disconnect between the words and images. The insight that was there was of very shallow variety. This topic and title deserved a more penetrating, balanced, well-ordered text to accompany the beautiful images.
