A beautiful book that weaves together art featuring felines, typography and puns. My two favorites are Japanese pieces: Preying Cat (the cat stalking the spider) and Zen Cat (the cat bowing to the mouse).

This is a cute little alphabet book illustrated from the Museum's art collection with cats as subjects. My favorite is Gustave Dore's "Puss In Boots" representing the letter 'V' with "Vive Le Chat!"
