This book is, so to speak, the bible of this online shop. But read for yourself:
The picture gallery created by Susan Herbert contains many masterpieces which will be readily recognized by a large public: the Mona Lisa, of course, but also The Laughing Cavalier, The Night Watch, The Bar at the Folies-Bergère, to mention only a few. There is also a handful of less familiar paintings which happen to be personal favorites of the author. The cat's eye-view often lends unexpected perspectives to these works. The Venus of Botticelli, for instance, is a particularly modest and innocent creature. Henry VIII's whiskers do seem to enchance the regal impression of Holbein's portrait. Vermeer's milkmaid is a properly demure Dutch tabby. It is appropriate that the sitter for Tissot's fan should be a sophisticated Siamese.
These are some of the considerations that make this such an amusing and intriguing book. Susan Herbert, in addition to her skill as a painter, shows an apt sense of humor. She has produced an original and captivating portfolio of paintings which will prove irrestible to cat-lover of all ages.
