In an endearing and amusing photographic account of cats, Jules Farber, with the help of passionate photography curators the world over, has assembled a stunning collection, comprising the works of early photographers such as Felix Nadar, a pioneer of avant-garde photography; Jacques-Henri Lartigue, whose professional recognition at age sixty-nine came long after his photographic debut at six; and the inimitable Man Ray; as well as contemporary shutterbugs such as Robert Capa of Magnum; Willy Ronis of Rapho; celebrity portraitist Philippe Halsman; and Edward Steichen, who curated the groundbreaking exhibition The Family of Man at the MOMA in 1955. Alongside photographs by such world-renowed photographers, are unexpected photographic treasures from artist Pierre Bonnard, author Victor Hugo's son Charles, and several anonymous nineteenth-century experimentalists. The images, which reflect a variety of styles, share one theme: cats. The book is divided into five chapters: At Home portrays cats engaged in domestic activities, from turning somersaults on chairs to sleeping in kitchen pots and lounging with nudes; In the City finds cats roaming and cavorting around the limitless and often surprising urban locales; In the Streets features cats caught in the arms of a fat little boy or snuggled deep within the folds of a bag lady's carriage; In the Country encounters cats enjoying dairy-fresh milk, napping beside contented owners, and peaking the curiosity of their animal counterparts; and At Play uncovers cats in such mischievous undertakings as pushing a dog on a hobby horse and trying a hand (paw?) at the piano. Cat lovers and photography enthusiasts alike will revel in this light-hearted and beautifully produced volume.
