The Cat: 3500 Years of the Cat in Art is a must-have for art AND cat lovers alike.

Immortalizing feline grace, independence and occasional mischief (as the primary subject or as a symbolic aside), this rewarding compendium is accompanied by insightful commentary and organized by thematic chapters. Hardcover; 288 pages with 260 color illustrations. 10.6"sq.
