BOOKS - August (including MY BOOK!!!)

Almost two years ago (I can't believe that it was almost two years ago), I was just about to get my wisdom teeth out when I got an email from a completely and utterly wonderful editor at Chronicle Books. She asked if I'd be interested in curating a book of cat illustrations (and quotations) for them. 

I said yes. 

Now it exists! 

If you like cats, illustration, quotes, any of the artists in the book, or me.... please buy it!

And here is a list of all the absurdly awesome illustrators whose cats you'll find in the book: Flora ChangLydia Nichols, Leah Goren, Thereza Rowe, Gemma CorrellDenise Gallagher, Jing Wei, Allison Kerek, Camilla Perkins, Lesley Barnes, Anke Weckmann, Laura Berger, Catherine Campbell, Anne Emond, Blanca Gómez, Nick Shepherd, Annie Seo, Monika Forsberg, Jessica Swift, Emily DoveMichéle Brummer Everett, Emily Isabella, Audrey Jeanne, Evah Fan, Julia Bereciartu, Sarah Goodreau, Danielle Kroll, Jamie Shelman, Mike Lowery, Caitlyn Murphy, Julianna Brion, Sarah Andreacchio, Monica Ramos, Victoria Fernandez, Ellen Giggenbach, Cindy Suen, Stephanie Baxter, Nan Lawson, Jen Collins, Llew Mejia, Albert + Marie, Allison Cole, Kate Wilson, Zutto, Fuchsia Macaree, The Little Friends of Printmaking, Julie Van Wezemael, Sarah WalshJoana Rosa Bragança, Jane Ormes, Brigette Barrager, and Alice Ferrow.
