For both Ronald Searle fans and those reader's unfamiliar with his work, this book is a literary delight! Searle takes the reader through various shapes and sizes of cats portrayed in real-life and sometimes rather compromising situations with quirky one-liners relating to each drawing. This, combined with the subtle humour true to Searle's form, and some exquisite characaturing, he creates a humourous, light-hearted piece of work - an absolute must for cat-lovers and coffee tables alike! Enjoy!
I'm so glad that I bought this book.The collection of postcards I had featuring some of these wonderful drawings have not fared well from being displayed on my fridge for some years so it's great to have them - and more - collected in one book. The man was a genius. It makes me laugh just to look at them without even have to study them for the more layered humour.
I know Searle since I am 14 years old, now I'm 68.I believe that Ronald is absolutely age-less.Beside, the drawings the style the artist hand the tecnique are as today unmatched and represent a way to understand the world. Together with few others like Sempè (france) or Novello (Italy) is a Mith!
