One of the most beautiful books that I have ever read. The pictures in this book are amazing! The photographer is insanely talented and the author is a cat lover for sure! I adore this book and fell in love with it right away. I have four cats and if you are a cat lover like me than this book is for you. ( )

Gorgeous photos of cats, domestic and wild. My one complaint is that there is quite a bit of text in a book that is so enormous and heavy it's impossible to hold. Maybe it's my *almost* 40 year old eyes, but I seriously couldn't read this without standing up and leaning over the table it was on. Cat lover win; format fail. ( )

Starting with the earliest records of domestic cats 9,000 years ago in Africa and the Mediterranean and moving to the present, Lewis Blackwell weaves stories of one of humankind's closest companions with a collection of more than 100 unforgettable images"--From the publisher.… (more)
