A visual celebration of the mystery and magnificence of cats, from charming kittens and affectionate families to bold hunters and battle-scarred toms. More than 100 illustrations depict cats at play, in riotous roof-top gatherings, poised in cool, fashion-plate elegance and enjoying convivial tea parties. Images drawn from more than six centuries include medieval books of hours and bestiaries, satirical cartoons, illustrations for fairytales and Aesop's Fables and manuscript art from India and the Far East. The collection features famous cat artists, such as Arthur Rackham, Steinlein, Gustave Dore, Cecil Aldin, Louis Wain and Kate Greenaway, as well as great cat personalities like the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland and Kipling's unforgettable Cat that Walked by Himself. Interspersed with intriguing and amusing quotations, In the Company of Cats is a compelling visual feast that will delight cat lovers everywhere.
