You won't believe your eyes! Someone came up with a truly novel idea. A fun book! ( )

The long awaited sequel to "Why Cats Paint", this book offers a survey of the various schools of cat-painting, with in-depth historical perspective, and interviews with many practitioners of this fine art. Includes many color plates with examples of the various styles and media. Despite the subtitle, there is little discussion of the ethics of painting cats, though none of the cats pictured look any more traumatised than cats who have to share their homes with a dog or a small child, or one who only gets gooshyfood once a week. Perhaps the pictures themselves speak to the ethical issues.

We await the logical conclusion of the series, "Why Cats Paint Cats". ( )

This book makes for a lovely piece of art- the pictures are wonderful. Some of the cats are particularly glamorous, and the photographs are gorgeous. If you like cats and enjoy books about them, pick this one up to admire. ( )

while Burton and Busch's previous book Why Cats Paint is a brilliant parody, there really isn't much to recommend this work at all. ( )
